Overall Satisfaction with WhatsUp Gold

We are currently using WhatsUp Gold to monitor up/down time for our Network Devices, including Cisco Routers, Switches, VPN and Firewall. When any one of the monitored devices go down, it will send me an alert.
  • Easy to deploy and easy to use. Once configured, it doesn't require much attention besides when adding new devices
  • Ability to create maps for end users. Simplifies their monitoring
  • Ability to create custom monitors and alerts based on various polling methods
  • Great customer service and tech support
  • The web-based GUI is very slow and not responsive sometimes
  • Very expensive training classes
  • Most add-on plugins require payment
  • Excellent network and infrastructure monitoring tool, we can check and be notified about down devices
  • I am going to implement Server CPU, Memory, Disk Space and Storage Monitoring in my environment by the end of this year
WhatsUp Gold is an industry leading product providing excellent monitoring and reporting capabilities for systems and resources that allow us as the customer to work proactively before system outages occur, which minimizes potential downtime
We use WhatsUp Gold to identify issues quickly and monitor repeated issues to help develop a more complete root cause. Keep in mind you can accomplish all of your inventory needs by using WhatsUp Gold.
