VMware Monitoring Software for WhatsUp Gold

Discover, map, monitor, alert and report on VMware and Hyper-V performance for hosts, guests and clusters in your network. Set alert thresholds for resource consumption of hosts and guests. See your virtual infrastructure in the context of its physical hosts.

network discovery

Discover Your Virtual Infrastructure

WhatsUp Gold software natively integrates with the VMware API to discover and monitor VMware ESX and ESXi environments. The VMware API is designed to collect information much more specific to VMware than traditional protocols like SNMP. WhatsUp Gold discovers all VMware hosts, guests and clusters on the network.

network mapping

Map Your Virtual Infrastructure

Automatically generate dynamic maps of your VMware infrastructure, displaying hosts and guests, clusters, and real-time status. These maps are an important first response tool helping system admins to keep track of all host/guest relationships to quickly isolate the source of virtual problems especially during periods of peak usage. With a single click on any virtual resource on the map, system admins can drill down to view performance data.

Alert on Your Virtual Infrastructure

WhatsUp Gold software generates threshold-based alerts that empower system admins to identify and fix performance problems before they impact users, applications and the business. They generate alerts on CPU, memory, disk and interface utilization on virtual machines. In addition, WhatsUp Gold can alert on vCenter events including virtual machine status, security-related events and any custom alerts that vCenter will generate an event log for.

Alerts, sent via email, SMS or log files, are integrated into the WhatsUp Gold Alert Center, providing a single source for managing alerts across the entire WhatsUp Gold suite.

WhatsUp Gold also features VMware management actions. System admins can power on/off, suspend, rest and lockdown guest machines in their virtual infrastructure.

Report on Your Virtual Infrastructure

WhatsUp Gold provides out-of-the-box reports on virtual performance. It provides the Virtual Host report of all VMware hosts discovered on the network.

The Virtual Server Attributes report provides system admins with VIM and API versions; the number of CPU cores, packages and threads; and the total virtual machines, powered on and off, and suspended. WhatsUp Gold delivers Virtual Machine Current CPU, Memory, Disk and Interface Utilization reports.

Reports can be integrated into customized end-to-end dashboards of the entire IT infrastructure. IT staff can create a single dashboard view of their wired and wireless network, physical and virtual servers, and applications to quickly assess the health of their entire IT infrastructure and to identify and fix problems before they impact user, applications or the business.
