I would definitely recommend the product for monitoring disk, processor, memory, and server availability. It has been very accurate for us and a life saver. We have also left several other products behind now that we can also receive notifications about service availability on a server. I don't believe it is very good at monitoring other hardware that we own. Mostly we have had trouble with getting switches and APs to alert properly.

It is definitely suited for people to learn quickly. There aren't as many bells and whistles, but it is reliable. I would recommend it from small shop to large enterprise.

WhatsUp is suitable for network inventory, device health, and status. However, it is not suitable for large scale configurations/backup configuration features as provided by different vendors. A tabular user interface can be replaced by graphical representation for much better understanding.

It's best suited for large/multinational organisations with complex networks with limited qualified personnel across every location. However, I wouldn't recommend it for a small organisation with a very simple network architecture.

Currently, the main use for WhatsUp is to monitor our broadband connections and cellular backup swings. We converted from T1's to "a less cost"/"a less reliable" connection but added the cellular to make up that 2% difference. WhatsUp monitors this via SNMP/syslog trapping to alert us when this swing happens. The imports of this we have on a 1 gig cellular limit so getting it swung back is very important. WhatsUp provides us with this quick alert.

WhatsUp Gold is perfect for organizations who need to be notified in the event of a system or service going down so that a technician can be dispatched before the phones start ringing from end-users not being able to access whatever might be out of commission. It is an investment of time and money to get up and running, so if you are looking to monitor only a few devices, or aren't looking for many bells and whistles, WhatsUp Gold might not be an appropriate choice.

We use it as a basic server monitoring tool, and find it very effective in that capacity. We primary use the space monitor and the ping monitor, and that has alerted us to sudden server failures many times; and with the space monitor it has allowed us to proactively manage the disk space for mission critical servers.

It works great in our environment, which is highly centralized and has very few cloud-based systems. In a cloud heavy scenario, I don't think it would perform as well without a great deal of additional configuration.
