Your IT team gets the control, insight and automated resolution needed to:
- Find and fix problems before your users are impacted
- Assure bandwidth is optimized for critical apps and services
- Automate discovery, mapping, monitoring and alerting, inventory and reporting
- Monitor and alert on wired and wireless devices and cloud resources
Automated Discovery & Mapping
WhatsUp Gold Layer 2/3 Discovery identifies all of the devices on your network including your routers, switches, servers, access points and more. WhatsUp Gold features Seed Scan technology which discovers all devices on the network by automatically learning your network topology. It can also discover the network using an IP Range Scan, from a Start and End IP Address and discovers all port-to-port connectivity and network dependencies. WhatsUp Gold automatically generates Layer 2/3 network maps of your core infrastructure, Windows® infrastructure, wireless infrastructure, cloud resources and more. It monitors wireless LAN Controllers (including the Meraki Wireless Cloud), Access Points, servers, storage devices, printers and more. The unique interactive network map displays your entire IT environment from end-to-end, quickly showing the status of every device and letting you see your end-to-end network health at a glance. Network administrators can click on any device to instantly display its status, properties and assigned monitors, or they can drill-down to dashboards displaying detailed performance data.
Manage & Monitor Your Infrastructure
WhatsUp Gold continuously monitors the availability and performance of your infrastructure from routers, switches, and firewalls through to your servers, storage devices and applications and your VMware virtual machines. In short, WhatsUp Gold can monitor anything with an IP address that can be accessed with standard monitoring protocols including ICMP, SNMP, WMI, and SSH.
Manage & Monitor Your Cloud Resources
WhatsUp Gold automatically discovers, maps and monitors cloud environments including Amazon Web Services and Azure servers. You can monitor, report and alert on the status and performance of every metric your cloud service collects via it’s own native API. Not only does this allow you to track cloud resource usage, it also allows you to track cloud billing and show this report on a simple dashboard. As with all WhatsUp Gold data, this can be stored for years in order to track long-term trends - something impossible with the 60 or 90-day metrics most cloud providers support. This extends WhatsUp Gold’s proven network monitoring functionality to the hybrid cloud and beyond the premises to ensure consistent traffic across all systems.
WhatsUp Gold provides turnkey Application Profiles that let you easily monitor availability performance of popular Microsoft applications such as Exchange, SharePoint®, Dynamics, Lync®, SQL Server®, DNS, Internet Information Services (IIS), Active Directory® and Hyper-V® as well as Linux systems and Apache web servers (Linux or Microsoft based). You can also easily create profiles for your in-house applications with an easy-to-use profile tool.
Network Traffic Analysis
WhatsUp Gold collects network traffic flow records using Cisco NetFlow, NetFlow-Lite and NSEL, Juniper J-Flow, sFlow, QUIC, and IPFIX protocols for extensive multi-vendor networks. This allows you to optimize network performance, isolate network traffic anomalies and bottlenecks and establish bandwidth usage policies. WhatsUp Gold monitors, alerts, and reports on interface traffic and bandwidth utilization. It provides detailed and actionable data on the top senders, receivers, conversations, applications, and protocols consuming network bandwidth and also helps secure your network by tracking and reporting on traffic going to Dark Web (Tor) ports and other suspicious connections.
WhatsUp Gold discovers, maps, monitors, alerts and reports on performance for virtual hosts and guests in real-time. It keeps an up-to-date list of all virtual hosts and attributes. It monitors the performance and resource consumption of hosts and guests, including CPU, Memory, Disk and Interface Utilization. It monitors the availability and performance of virtual servers and collects event logs using both VMware and Hyper-V technologies.
