With the PRTG Administration Tool that you can launch from the Windows start menu, you can edit administrative settings that affect your PRTG installation, the local probe running with it, and remote probe installations. All settings will require a restart of the affected PRTG Windows services to apply any changes on the configuration. Please see the following sections for details.

If you start the PRTG Administration Tool on the PRTG core server, you can change settings which affect your whole PRTG installation and your local probe. If you run the PRTG Administration Tool on a system on which a remote probe runs, you can only change settings which are related to this probe.

Note: You can also change many administrative settings via the Setup in the PRTG web interface. For probes, settings are also available on the corresponding tab in the web interface.

Note: You can review the history of all changes to the settings of the PRTG Administration Tool in the Logs (Debug) directory. The name of the according log file is PRTG Administration Tool Changelog.log. For information on how to find the folder used for storage, please see section Data Storage.
