Sometimes you probably think to yourself: “Self, why isn’t life easier?” I know I do. Thankfully for you network engineers and admins, life can be easier.

Nearly 5,000 users have already taken advantage of the new WhatsUp Gold Engineer’s Toolkit.  Its ease of implementation and uniform interface serve to reduce the time spent on mundane network engineering tasks.

Here are just a few ways the Engineer’s Toolkit can help:

The MAC Address Discovery Tool – This tool is great when you need to track down an issue with duplicate IPs on your network or if your organization filters traffic based on MAC addresses by capturing all of the addresses on a specific subnet and the associated IP address.

The NetFlow Configurator – The easy-to-use graphical interface of the NetFlow Configurator allows you to configure NetFlow on your Cisco devices, especially if you are short on time to locate and learn the appropriate CLI commands for manual enablement of NetFlow.

These two tools are just a few of the ways Ipswitch WhatsUp Gold aims to make your life easier. Now if only they had an Engineer’s Toolkit that could help with yardwork……

Learn more about the Engineer’s Toolkit or view a presentation on Network Design and Planning.

It ‘s now back to work as usual for many of us here at Ipswitch’s Network Management Division after an exciting trip to Vegas. CiscoLive proved to be a great launching platform for the WhatsUp Gold Engineer’s Toolkit; interest in this free, limited-time offer was widespread during and after the show.

For those of you unaware of the toolkit release, the WhatsUp Gold Engineer’s toolkit, valued at $995, is now available for free. You can now simplify many common network management tasks like configuration, credentials, design, diagnostics, discovery, and verification of Cisco devices. If you weren’t lucky enough to make it to Vegas for the show, the toolkit is still available for download on our website.

To see pictures of the show, visit our facebook page.

Network Managers, as you know, don’t typically have a lot of down time on a day-to-day basis.

It seems there’s always some network or user issue popping up (and in most cases it’s more than one issue at a time) so you find yourself running around trying to keep the network running and the users happy.

Monitoring and maintaining your network traffic and bandwidth utilization used to be an overlooked aspect of your job, deemed less important. But the rapid evolution of technology has changed the makeup of networks everywhere and has forced network managers to include Flow analysis and monitoring in their network management strategies.

Not only will including this in your strategy allow you to maintain control and ensure of the peak performance of your network’s bandwidth, it will also ensure your network is not at risk of viruses, malware attacks or any other malicious behavior.

A proper Flow monitoring tool delivers peace of mind, allowing you to have confidence that your network is secure and your bandwidth is not being consumed with such capabilities as:

  • Support for Popular Flow Formats: The ability to monitor NetFlow, sFlow and JFlow, with support for switches and routers from vendors such as Cisco, Extreme, Juniper, HP and more
  • Visibility into Network Bandwidth Utilization:Complete, real-time visibility into QoS and exactly how your network bandwidth is being used to ensure optimal network performance
  • Comprehensive Reporting:Collection of NetFlow, sFlow and JFlow records and conversion into useful reports which track real-time usage as well as historical trends
  • Threshold Based Alerting: Receiving alerts in real-time when configured thresholds are exceeded allow you to proactively troubleshoot and resolve performance bottlenecks and eliminate malicious behavior

WhatsUp Gold Flow Monitor is a network traffic analysis solution that offers all of these benefits, allowing you to focus on other business-critical projects while giving you the peace of mind that your network is constantly performing at its peak. Don’t just take my word for it, though. Here is Claudio Robles, one of our WhatsUp Gold experts, offering more insight into the benefits of Flow Monitor.
