Product Details

What is Progress WhatsUp Gold?

Progress WhatsUp Gold (WUG) is designed to help network admins find and fix network problems before end users notice. Its web-based interactive mapping interface lets users see up/down availability and performance at-a-glance for everything connected to a network, on premises and in the cloud.

WUG is an on-premises solution designed for IT enterprises and 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 anything connected to the network, including physical servers, cloud resources, storage devices, VMware and Hyper-V virtual machines as well as wireless devices. It helps IT admins to view, analyze and manage cross-device connections from a single interactive map. Admins can also monitor application performance and network traffic and manage network device configuration and change control processes. Any network activity falling outside of customizable thresholds triggers alerts sent via email, web, SMS or Slack. Alerts can also trigger self-healing actions or PowerShell scripts.

WhatsUp Gold is used across the organization to monitor current systems and alert us when operational systems are down, it gives us 24/7 monitoring as we have linked it to AD groups that inform the Ops desk and the on call engineer when we have a P1 issue. It also gives us a continuous overview whist in work of when systems go down and we can pro-actively check issues that arise.

We use [Progress] Whatsup Gold [(formerly Ipswitch WhatsUp Gold)] to monitor our server environment. We have a small farm of about 70 systems. While it has many features our primary use case is to alert on down services and systems. We do not utilize the network plugins for the application. It suits our need for what it does.

We purchased What's Up Gold to monitor our server uptime but quickly realized the potential for monitoring and alerting on more aspects of our servers. We use it to send notifications on low disk space, server uptime, processor, and memory notifcations.

My company uses WhatsUp Gold for monitoring thousands of network devices across the country for our customers in Managed Enterprise Solutions. We are able to get a better grasp at trends with the help of this NMS. The newer versions also allow a cleaner user experience, which we like.

WhatsUp Gold is being used to monitor multiple sites owned by the organization across different countries across Africa. It's being used by the Networks Department to holistically manage the network across these various locations. WhatsUp Gold has helped the organization not only to monitor multiple sites but also provides real-time status of every endpoint device at each site. Through SNMP configuration, real-time and periodic well-detailed reports on each device can generate proper analysis and performance of the network in general, which could impact in futuristic strategic planning.

Currently, we use WhatsUp Gold for monitoring and maintaining our extended grocery chain infrastructure. This includes the Cisco routers, switches, and wireless APs. The main use is to monitor when a connection drops, switches between our primary connection and secondary connection or any hardware issues that may arise. I do use it a little for NetFlow tracking and Syslogging when needed.

We use WhatUp Gold Premium Edition by Ipswitch to monitor our important network devices and services for uptime and notifications via email and text in the event of downtime. It is used by the IT Department, but deployed across the whole organization. We needed to find a software that alerted us to devices and services going down unplanned. WhatsUp Gold solved that problem for us.

We use WhatsUp Gold (WUG) to monitor our servers (physical and virtual), as well as our internal network traffic. It allows us to be proactive about our server and network performance, as well as access perfomance history for capacity planning.
