WhatsUp Gold

Up/down availability and performance at a glance

What is WhatsUp Gold?

Avoid downtime with a network monitoring solution that covers you from the network edge to the cloud.  See developing issues before users report them.  Troubleshoot faster from an interactive topology map that shows connectivity and dependencies.

Network Availability and Performance Monitoring

WhatsUp Gold provides complete visibility into the status and performance of applications, network devices and servers in the cloud or on-premises.

Network Mapping

WhatsUp Gold’s discovery and mapping tool combines Layer 2 and Layer 3 discovery methods to create comprehensive, interactive network maps that are easily customised.  It discovers and collects information from every network asset using layer 2/3 discovery techniques, including SNMP, ARP, ICMP, Virtual Infrastructure Management, IP addressing, CDP, LLDP, etc.  WhatsUp Gold then creates dynamic layer 2 maps giving administrators a comprehensive view of their entire infrastructure.

Network Performance

WhatsUp Gold's network monitoring tools give you a complete picture of your network by understanding wired, wireless, and virtual environments.
