Monitor Bandwidth Consumption and Network Traffic

Get Visibility into Your Network Traffic

WhatsUp Gold makes it easy to get detailed visibility into your network traffic to see which users, applications, and protocols are consuming bandwidth or connecting to suspicious ports. This insight allows you to setup bandwidth usage policies, maximize your return on ISP costs and ensure adequate bandwidth for critical business applications and services.

Analyze bandwidth consumption across networks, servers, applications and more.

Find backups or file transfers running during peak load periods

Track unauthorized, bandwidth hogs like streaming or gaming

Detect and report on traffic to and from the dark web (Tor) or other suspicious sites

Monitor Network Traffic with WhatsUp Gold

Monitor Network Traffic

WhatsUp Gold collects network traffic and bandwidth usage data from any flow-enabled device on the network.

Receive Alerts with WhatsUp Gold

Receive Alerts

WhatsUp Gold provides threshold-based alerting to help you address bandwidth problems before they impact your users, applications, and business. It alerts you when senders or receivers exceed bandwidth thresholds, when interface traffic exceeds utilization thresholds, and when you exceed failed connections and the number of conversation partner thresholds.

Report with WhatsUp Gold


Monthly ISP bandwidth charges are expensive. You don’t want to add more bandwidth unless you need it. WhatsUp Gold software lets you drill-down to identify the sources and destinations of your internet traffic, the applications consuming internet bandwidth, and the users of those applications. In this way, you can ensure that your business-critical web applications are getting the bandwidth they need.
