  • Per server refers to the server running the PRTG software.
    Not the number of servers you intend to monitor.

    Each tier allows you to run a different number of sensors.
     
    they do a free version which allows you to monitor upto 100 sensors.

    a sensor can be some thing like
    ping
    disk space
    running service

    the list of sensors is endless.

    • The pricing is based on the number of sensors.  You would generally have only 1 core server.

      You can add additional probe sensors at no extra cost. 

      It's all based on the number of sensors you create.

      As Colin says you can set it up for free to try with up to 100 sensors

    • Like the others, per server node, for that cost it is worth paying if you only plan on one server as the management server. I stood up a complete PRTG environment without the license and it worked out great. It will monitor a lot of stuff and creates a web-based dashboard, you can use powershell, wmi, snmp in the sensors.

      I would honestly start with the trial and take it from there.
