What counts as a sensor?
The licensing options are based on the number of sensors not the number of devices. This flexibility allows you to add sensors where you need them. Most of our customers use roughly 10 sensors per device which means that you can easily monitor 100 devices with the PRTG 1000 license. If you hit a sensor limit you can simply upgrade to a higher license by just paying the price difference.
A sensor in PRTG speak is defined as one aspect that you can monitor on a device, such as the CPU load on a machine, a port of a switch, a specific URL or the traffic of a network connection. See this list for more sensor types.
For the unrestricted sensor licenses the number of sensors is not limited by PRTG's licensing but by technical constraints like performance limitations of hardware, network and other software. If you are planning a large installation please refer to our sizing recommendations.

Number of Sensors
This license does not limit the number of sensors that you can use. However, the possible maximum number of sensors depends on the setup of your system.
We will only grant technical support for PRTG installations that follow the recommended setup described in our sizing recommendations. Especially, supported PRTG installations may not exceed a maximum of 10,000 sensors.
