With WhatsUp Gold’s intelligent management
platform, you’ll have complete visibility into your
entire network infrastructure with minimal care
and feeding. If a problem occurs, WhatsUpGold
quickly informs you if network resources are
being taxed beyond their intended use,
enabling you to proactively respond and correct
the situation before any service is disrupted.
Using the latest standards in network
management protocols (including SNMP V3),
WhatsUp Gold makes your job easy – by
ensuring your infrastructure is running and
performing at the desired level of service.
Sophisticated Network Monitoring
WhatsUp Gold doesn’t rely on just the basics
for managing your network. Instead, a
sophisticated strategy of both active and
passive monitoring mechanisms is used to
track the status and health of network devices.
For example, periodic active monitoring
mechanisms like ping or SNMP polling can
provide availability and performance
characteristics, while passive monitoring and
alerting on SNMP traps and syslog messages
can prevent immediate disruptions.
Going Beyond Availability
WhatsUp Gold performance monitoring
extends your network visibility beyond simple
up-down availability. Performance metrics like
CPU, memory and interface utilization provides
insight into the health of the device over time.
Additional information from the Flow Monitor
and Flow Publisher plug-ins enable you to
easily identify the actual causes of network
traffic congestion, whether internal or external.
Data collected by the Flow Monitor & Flow
Publisher plug-ins can even stop malicious
access to company infrastructure.
With its wireless network monitoring
capabilities, WhatsUp Gold can ensure optimal
performance by tracking the bandwidth your
wireless users are consuming and notifying you
if wireless access points are close to
WhatsUp Gold’s wired and wireless network,
system, and application monitoring capabilities
provide context-based visibility into
performance problems, enhancing your triage
skills and enabling you to minimize the time
spent on problem resolution.
For example, with a quick glance you can see
which services and applications are impacted if
a device goes down. With this information in
hand, you can quickly prioritize trouble tickets
and deal with the most business critical
Typical Problem Solving Scenarios
WhatsUp Gold enables you to rapidly identify
and resolve infrastructure performance
problems. With WhatsUp Gold, you can:
- Track router and switch performance,
including memory and CPU, to ensure
network slowdowns are not resulting from
an overloaded device
- Use thresholds to proactively track interface
utilization and availability. An interface with
sudden spikes in utilization increases may
mean either a misuse of resources (e.g.
streaming video or audio) or possibly an
external attack on your network
- Quickly troubleshoot routing issues – an
overloaded router CPU can cause the
router to fail to send routing updates to
- Monitor interface utilization over time to
ensure network resources are sized
appropriately. Long-term capacity reporting
can uncover underutilized resources
(resulting in cost savings) as well as soon
to be over utilized resources
