WUG Mobile Phone App

Application Performance Monitoring Overlay & Device Card Display

A new overlay shows at-a-glance status of devices with enabled application monitoring profiles. Devices that monitor applications now display a color-coded status badge. Clicking on the device brings up an updated device card that displays the current status of the application monitors. Clicking on any of these monitors takes you straight to the Application Performance Monitoring dashboard. In addition, APM configuration is now possible in the device properties dialog.

Network Traffic Analysis Device Card Display

Clicking on any device that has netflow traffic brings up an updated device card that displays the traffic being monitored and its bandwidth for IP addresses associated with the device. The top 5 traffic conversations are also displayed for at-a-glance network traffic status. Clicking on any of these takes you straight to the Network Traffic Analysis dashboard.  If the device is a flow source, the card will also show traffic from the source interfaces.

Cloud Billing Display

AWS & Azure Performance Monitoring

WhatsUp Gold automatically discovers, maps and monitors cloud environments including Amazon Web Services and Azure servers. You can monitor, report and alert on the status and performance of every metric your cloud service collects via its own native API. Not only does this allow you to track cloud resource usage, it also allows you to track cloud billing and show this report on a simple dashboard. Use WhatsUp Gold to track long-term trends – something impossible with the 60 or 90-day metrics most cloud providers support.

Dark Web (Tor) Detection & Reporting

WhatsUp Gold 2018 can now alert administrators when users access the Dark Web (Tor). This feature monitors all Network Traffic Analyzer Sources and can alert when any host exceeds a configurable number of connections to known Tor ports during a set period. This allows administrators to control access to the Dark Web by their users.

Redesigned Device Group Mini Status Display

The Device Group Mini Status report has been redesigned to make it easier to see the status of all monitors for all devices in a selected group at a glance. The view can be expanded further to display monitor names as well as statuses.

Role-based Filtering for Monitors During Discovery

Users can now set up filters to define which interfaces on a network device are setup with active monitors.  The role editor can match on specific interface names, regular expressions, operational state, interface type, port number(s) or interface speed, and use these to pre-designate Active Monitor lists used at the interface level during network discovery. This makes it easier to specify which interfaces are assigned active interface monitors during discovery rather than automatically applying monitors to all interfaces by default.

More At-a-Glance Visibility

Display at-a-glance network status with a new, interactive Overview dashboard. Identify and categorize your device icons with a library of 200+ new designs that can be applied via device roles. See a passive monitor indicator on device icons in the map view. Extend storage monitoring capabilities to Dell Compellent and Synology NAS devices. Broadcast alerts to the entire IT team with new Slack integration. WhatsUp Gold 2018 makes it easier than ever to find and fix problems fast across your entire network environment.

Visibility to Interface Utilization

A new overlay provides a visual representation or ‘heat map’ of the status of links between your devices. With one click you can see which interface links are fine (green), becoming congested (yellow) or approaching capacity (red).

Enhanced Wireless Monitoring

WhatsUp Gold 2018 lets you monitor your wireless network in more detail with new monitors like radio type for better diagnostics. It also supports Cisco Meraki cloud-based wireless management and updates the wireless overlay with a clearer display of active SSIDs for each AP.

Simplified Dashboard View Migration from WUG 16.x

WhatsUp Gold 2018 can now automatically migrate all user dashboards and reports developed in previous 16.x versions of WhatsUp Gold. This functionality is available during the installation process, but it also an option that can be initiated post-install via an included utility. WhatsUp Gold users of previous versions will find this makes it much simpler to migrate their familiar dashboards and reports to WhatsUp Gold 2018.
