- Built-in, customizable device roles assign monitors based on device type
Network Monitoring & Alerting
- 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.
- Get alerts via email, SMS, and web or alert the whole team via Slack.
Reporting and Dashboards

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.
Each plug-in module integrates seamlessly with WhatsUp Gold extending core discovery, alerting, reporting and dashboard capabilities.
Network Traffic Analysis
- 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
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.
- 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.
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
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
Scale across distributed geographies with 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.
