WhatsUp Gold's Advanced Hardware Monitoring Software is the ultimate solution for managing your network infrastructure that enables you to identify and remediate potential problems resulting from sub-optimal operating conditions for hardware equipment.
Overheated server and network rooms could result in the failure of equipment or minimally reduce their useful life. Server and network equipment vendors are realizing this and adding probes that can report on physical conditions like temperature and available power.
WhatsUp Gold continues to track these introductions and bring them under its monitoring umbrella. Custom monitors can easily be set up if your equipment exposes SNMP MIB objects for any physical conditions. Current hardware monitors supported by WhatsUp Gold include:
The APC active monitor enables immediate monitoring of over 60 different parameters. APC UPS devices are monitored and alerts are sent when selected thresholds are met or exceeded, output states are reached, and/or abnormal conditions are met. APC performance monitors enable immediate monitoring of output power usage. Any APC UPS’s discovered are automatically monitored. Status is provided via graphs in the workspace reports.
WhatsUp Gold obtains internal device temperature measurements from Cisco switches and routers, Dell servers, HP Procurve switches and external temperature measurement devices from Ravica.
WhatsUp Gold automatically obtains internal fan status from Cisco switches and routers, Dell servers, Dell PowerConnect switches and routers and HP Procurve switches.
WhatsUp Gold automatically obtains internal power supply status from Cisco switches and routers, Dell servers, Dell PowerConnect switches and routers and HP Procurve switches.
The printer active monitor supports any equipment that supports the IETF Printer MIB, RFC 3805. Any printers found to support the Printer MIB are automatically assigned pre-configured active monitors to monitoring things like ink/toner levels.
