Network Monitoring & Alerting
Keep ahead of network performance and availability issues with powerful Active, Passive and Performance monitors and alerting features including:
Active Monitors which poll devices for an up/down or yes/no response
Passive monitors which include support for SNMP traps, Syslog, and Windows Event Logs from networked devices and servers
Performance monitors using protocols such as SNMP, SSH or WMI to track utilization data of CPU, disk, memory etc.
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 device roles, which can be customized or added to, assign monitors based on device type
Reporting and Dashboards
WhatsUp Gold provides a range of built-in reports for network performance, inventory information and device availability. Reporting features include:
Sorting, addition or removal of columns with a single click
Timeframe or business hour filters (depending on report context)
Flexible report scheduling and email distribution
Exports in a variety of formats
Network Traffic Analysis
With the addition of Network Traffic Analysis, your network devices can send flow records to port 9999 on the WhatsUp Gold server. We support a wide variety of flow protocols including Netflow, NSEL, sFlow, J-Flow and IPFIX and includes features like:
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
Powerful application monitoring tools include the ability to record web transactions data to generate scripts and monitor the response times of web-applications. Quickly isolate the root causes of performance problems with features that include:
Built-in monitoring profiles for common applications like Microsoft Exchange, SQL, SharePoint, and Active Directory
Customization enabled by editing existing profiles or creating your own custom profiles
Dashboard and reporting tools let you view the health of all the applications, individual application or troubleshoot at the component level.
Support compliance requirements for HIPAA, SOX, FISMA and PCI DSS and other regulations. Streamline configuration backup, archiving and restoration. The Configuration Manager gives you a set of tools that will automate the process of backing up configurations for network devices that support Telnet or SSH. Other features include:
Alerts for configuration changes (authorized or not)
Audits that compare running configurations against defined policies
Built-in scripts for SNMP string changes, user name adds/removals, configuration backups
Virtual Environment Monitoring
Virtual Monitoring gathers performance statistics for the host server and guest, maps out the virtual environment, and allows users to be notified based on information in event logs coming from the Hyper-V/VMware management server.
You can also discover management services (such as VMware vCenters) or individual hypervisors (Hyper-V, ESX/ESXi) running in an unmanaged environment. Using management services
to discover virtual machines provides monitoring and logging continuity required in high-availability, fault tolerant or workload managed environments
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
Gain more visibility to 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 server. Leverage distributed reports to 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.
