Up/Down Availability and Performance Reporting

See what's up and what's down instantly whether in the cloud or on-premises.  Get complete visibility to the status of network devices, systems and applications.  Leverage topology-aware monitoring that understands network dependencies so you receive fewer, more intelligent alerts.  Receive notifications through SMS, email, web or Slack so you know about developing issues before users report them.

Automatic Discovery and Mapping

See network devices, servers, virtual machines, cloud and wireless environments in context.  Click on any device to get immediate access to a wealth of related network monitoring settings and reports.  See how everything is connected and get answers faster.  WhatsUp Gold creates a detailed interactive map of your entire networked infrastructure.

Customisable Alerting

Leverage a dependency-aware network monitor to generate fewer more actionable alerts.  Empower your network monitor with automated actions that trigger when a state change occurs including email alerts, SMS alerts, Slack alerts, IFTTT posts, service restarts, and web alarms.  WhatsUp Gold's alert center and dashboards put you in control.

Customisable Dashboards

Create dashboards for individual users or technology domains to provide the information you need to streamline troubleshooting or administration.  Customize dashboards with reports for servers, applications, virtual, wireless, cloud and network traffic.  Export or schedule report runs to share with your team or management.

AWS & Azure Performance Monitoring

WhatsUp Gold automatically discovers, maps and monitors cloud environments including Amazon Web Services and Azure servers.  It allows you to track cloud resource usage & cloud billing and show this report on a simple dashboard.

Network Status in Your Pocket

Now you can get current network information from WhatsUp Gold 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 and Android.

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.

WhatsUp Gold works with major platform providers
