Integrate With Anything

WhatsUp Gold includes a powerful REST API that makes it easy to integrate it with your own systems or scripts. An extensive suite of REST API calls let you automate your workload by extracting specific data from WhatsUp Gold or inputting information from a separate system or script. You can extract current status information for use by another system, automatically put devices into maintenance mode before making changes, add or remove devices, add monitors and more.

Network Status in Your Pocket

Now you can get current network information on your mobile device. See network status at a glance on the home page: what’s up, what’s down and what’s in maintenance mode. Browse for specific devices for details and put them into or out of maintenance mode no matter where you are. Put the power of WhatsUp Gold in your pocket today and start resolving issues from anywhere. Available now for iOS Android.


Discovery & Network Mapping

WhatsUp Gold network monitoring begins with powerful Layer 2/3 discovery of devices and any networked server. Discovery and Mapping tools include:

  • Scope of discovery determined by individual IP addresses, seed scan, IP address ranges, or subnets
  • Easy to add credentials including SNMP, Windows domain administrator, ADO, Telnet/SSH, VMware, JMX and SMIS
  • Scheduling for ad hoc or recurring discoveries
  • Built-in, customizable device roles assign monitors based on device type
Network Monitoring & Alerting

Keep ahead of network performance and availability issues with powerful Active, Passive and Performance monitors and intelligent alerting features including:

  • Active Monitors which poll devices for an up/down or yes/no response
  • Passive monitors for SNMP traps, Syslog, and Windows Event Logs from networked devices and servers
  • Performance monitors using SNMP, SSH or WMI to track CPU, disk, memory and network utilization
  • Alerts via email, SMS, and web or alert the whole team via Slack
  • Real-time network monitoring deep-dive troubleshooting.
Reporting and Dashboards

WhatsUp Gold’s web-based interface makes reporting easy by quickly collecting , refining and delivering information to your IT team. Dashboard and reporting features include:

  • Sorting, addition or removal of columns with a single click
  • Timeframe or business hour filters (depending on report context)
  • ‘Pins’ that apply filter choices to multiple reports
  • An Overview Dashboard that displays up/down status with red-green bar charts
  • Flexible scheduling and email distribution
  • Report exports in multiple formats
Cloud Monitoring

Our Cloud Monitoring dashboards allow you to track cloud resource usage and billing and provide cost-justification to management. WhatsUp Gold automatically discovers, maps and monitors cloud environments including Amazon Web Services and Azure servers. Report and alert on the performance of every metric your cloud service provides through its API. 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.

Plug-In Modules

Each plug-in module integrates seamlessly with WhatsUp Gold extending core discovery, alerting, reporting and dashboard capabilities.

Network Traffic Analysis

Assure ample bandwidth for critical applications and get visibility to the business impact of performance problems. Our Network Traffic Analysis monitoring solution integrates with WhatsUp Gold supporting a wide variety of flow protocols including NetFlow, NSEL, QUIC, sFlow, J-Flow and IPFIX. Features include:

  • A centralized view of network traffic data with built-in reports
  • Top application reports using Cisco’s NBAR classification data
  • CBQoS reports for the details on class-based policies
Application Monitoring

Extend your visibility to the applications, services and systems that run your business. WhatsUp Gold’s Application Performance Monitoring plug-in includes the ability to generate web transaction scripts to monitor response times. Quickly isolate the root causes of performance problems with features that include:

  • Built-in, customizable monitoring profiles for Microsoft Exchange, SQL, SharePoint, and Active Directory
  • Dashboards and reports for visibility across all apps, individual apps or component level detail.
Configuration Management

Automate device configuration backups and restores to reduce errors and support compliance requirements for HIPAA, SOX, FISMA and PCI DSS and other regulations. The Configuration Manager automates configuration backups for network devices that support Telnet or SSH. Other features include:

  • Alerts for all configuration changes
  • Audits that compare running configurations against defined policies
  • Built-in scripts for SNMP string changes, user name adds/removals, configuration backups
Virtual Environment Monitoring

Your VMware and Hyper-V resources shouldn’t be a blind spot. The Virtual Monitoring plug-in accesses vCenter and Hyper-V Manager APIs to gather performance statistic and maps out the virtual environment. Get proactive alerts on performance stats and event logs.

Discover management services (such as VMware vCenters) or individual hypervisors (Hyper-V, ESX/ESXi) running in an unmanaged environment. Get the monitoring and logging continuity required in high-availability, fault tolerant or workload managed environments.

Failover Manager

Assure minimal monitoring downtime. Automatically switch WhatsUp Gold from a primary server to a standby server when the primary system is not functioning normally. The Failover Console displays primary server and secondary server data including:

  • The machine’s host server address
  • Machine status states including: Active – currently polling the network, Standby – ready to assume network polling, Down – unable to perform network polling, or Unknown
Distributed Monitoring

Scale network management to gain visibility to geographically remote networks. The distributed network monitoring feature extends the capabilities of WhatsUp Gold to multiple remote networks, allowing a central installation server and one or more remote installations.

Monitor remote installations from a designated central network management server. Create remote site dashboard views. A number of remote installations can send data back to the central server creating a unified view for managing multiple remote networks.
