WhatsUp Gold Software


 

WhatsUp Gold is an on-premise network monitoring solution designed for IT enterprises and managed service providers (MSPs). The solution helps them to manage their IT infrastructure and network activities. It offers tools for discovering, visualizing and monitoring network devices, displaying connections between devices and monitoring network status.

WhatsUp Gold can automatically discover devices within the network, including physical servers, VMware, data centers, Hyper-V and workstations, among others. The solution helps IT administrators to manage cross-device connections from a single map. Administrators can also monitor network traffic, enable or disable connected devices and generate performance reports via a personalized dashboard.

WhatsUp Gold helps network administrators to manage network device configuration and change control processes. The Configuration Management module archives and audits network configurations and send alerts to admins upon setting change. It also ensures that devices comply with regulatory standards like SOX, PCI, HIPAA and FISMA.

WhatsUp Gold offers a point-based license for a one-time fee that also includes support via email and phone.

Just an outright solid program.

Pros

Normally I work with Solarwinds products, so my experience with this product within my environment is limited compared to some of my coworkers.

From the work I have done with this software I have been sincerely impressed. WUG might not be as feature-rich as NPM, but for the cost it's a pretty deep monitoring system.

It's more cost effective than Solarwinds SAM, unless you already have NPM in your environment.

Cons

Doesn't quite offer what Solarwinds can, but the cost is significantly lower. If you don't have NPM in your environment then its a good alternative to SAM.

When you have a lot of servers and a lot of websites and your college administrators are demanding that they be up 95% of the time or better, you need a good monitoring tool. What's Up Gold is the best tool I've found out there, bar none.

Pros

It is completely customizable. Even the landing page can be customized to display your environment in the way that you want to see it. Alerts can be taken from the library and/or customized for your needs. A graphic display of your environment with color-coded conditions is useful for a quick visual look at your environment, and I have it running on one of my system monitors all the time. Email alerts, text messages - all customizable.

Cons

Like any large-scale program, it can be difficult to learn and I recommend attending training to get the most out of the product, which is an additional cost. And the product isn't cheap to begin with. Just looking at the initial screens can be very intimidating.
