New for 2021!

Integrated Log Management

Extensive log management capabilities are now integrated into WhatsUp Gold via a new add-on. Users can monitor, filter, search and alert on logs for every device in their network while also watching for meta trends like log volume changes. All of this is done within the same industry-leading interface that makes troubleshooting with WhatsUp Gold so easy. The result is the ability to manage Syslog and Windows log events and alerts the same way you monitor the rest of the network and with the same customizable dashboards and reporting.

Integrate With Anything

Outbound and Inbound Public REST API Support ‐ WhatsUp Gold’s inbound REST API support has been expanded to include outbound REST APIs. An extensive suite of outbound REST API calls let users leverage REST to provide information to WhatsUp Gold from other 3rd-party systems. This extends integration to the application level, making it simple to seamlessly integrate functionality with 3rd-party applications like SalesForce, Office 365 and others.

As well, inbound REST API calls let you automate your workload by extracting specific data from WhatsUp Gold or inputting information from a separate system or script. You can extract current status information for use by another system, automatically put devices into maintenance mode before making changes, add or remove devices, add monitors, and more.
