Reduce Network Downtime

Automatically switch WhatsUp Gold from a primary installation to a standby system when the primary system is not functioning normally.  The WhatsUp Gold Failover Manager reduces costly downtime by automatically taking action in the event of a primary system failure.  This capability can also be initiated by a network administrator manually for planned outages/maintenance. Note that both the primary and failover servers will require separate WhatsUp Gold licenses.  Please contact us for details. The Failover Manager utilizes user-configurable criteria to determine a failed state.  You can choose to have the primary system go down if all services are disabled, or if any specified service is disabled.  For example, if you select all services, the services used by WhatsUp Gold must go down on the primary service for the secondary system to take over.  If you select only the Polling Engine and Web Server, and both are disabled on the primary system for any reason, the secondary system takes over WhatsUp Gold network management duties until the primary system is restored.
