Overall Satisfaction with Progress WhatsUp Gold (formerly Ipswitch WhatsUp Gold)

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.
  • Inexpensive
  • Good support
  • Accurate alerting
  • Poor GUI
  • Long configuration time
  • Poor formatting for text alerts
  • Its price (inexpensive)
  • Its inexpensive but requires more man hours to configure

Do you think Progress WhatsUp Gold delivers good value for the price?

[Progress WhatsUp Gold (formerly Ipswitch WhatsUp Gold)] is good for what it is. An inexpensive but accurate monitor for alerting on systems and services. However, it is time consuming to configure, The GUI leaves a lot to be desired and the formatting for txt alerts stinks (I just use it now as an alert to check my email to view the actual alert.)
