Ipswitch® WhatsUp Gold 2016 TotalView Edition is powerful, easy to try, buy and use software for unified server and network monitoring.

Powerful Unified Application, Server and Network Monitoring

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

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 SNMP Smart Scan 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 and more. It monitors wireless LAN Controllers, Access Points, servers, printers and more. The network maps also display real-time status information for each device on the map. Network administrators can click on any device to drill-down to a dashboard displaying detailed performance data and current status.

Manage & Monitor Your Infrastructure

WhatsUp Gold continuously monitors the availability and performance of your infrastructure from routers, switches, and firewalls through to your servers 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.

Application Monitoring

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.

Flow Monitoring

WhatsUp Gold collects flow records using Cisco NetFlow, NetFlow-Lite and NSEL, Juniper J-Flow, sFlow, 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.

Virtual Monitoring

WhatsUp Gold discovers, maps, monitors, alerts and reports on VMware performance for ESX and ESXi hosts and guests in real-time. It keeps an up-to-date list of all VMware hosts and attributes. It monitors the performance and resource consumption of hosts and guests, including CPU, Memory, Disk and Interface Utilization viat the vSphere API. It monitors the availability and performance of VMware vCenter servers and collects vCenter event logs.

Smart Alerting & Actions

WhatsUp Gold provides real-time alerts via email, text, and logging. Alerts empower you to proactively respond to problems before they impact users, applications and the business. WhatsUp Gold issues an alert when a device or monitor changes state (e.g., from an up state to a down state) or when a performance threshold is exceeded – for example, when memory utilization exceeds 75 percent. WhatsUp Gold’s smart alerting uses the network dependencies automatically identified in the discovery process to eliminate alert storms and quickly identify the root causes of network problems. The WhatsUp Gold Alert Center displays threshold-based alerts in a single dashboard.

You can create action policies for alerts including event logging, email,texting, and automated self-healing actions such as restarting an application service.

Reporting & Inventory

WhatsUp Gold delivers an easy-to-customize reporting environment. You can select from hundreds of out-of-the-box views or create high-level, summary dashboards that provide a quick assessment of overall IT health – even detailed drill-down dashboards to isolate the root causes of performance problems. These dashboards can help you quickly resolve performance problems across your organization. WhatsUp Gold also features integrated inventory reporting including hardware inventory, reports on installed software and updates, warranty reports, and more. These reports save both time and money and can decrease year-end IT inventory activities from weeks to minutes. The reports will also help you find under-utilized hardware resources that can be redeployed and identify unlicensed software to avoid expensive true-up costs.
