More Visibility to Remote Networks
The Distributed monitoring feature extends the capabilities of WhatsUp Gold to multiple remote networks, allowing a central installation and one or more remote installations. A single instance of WhatsUp Gold is determined to be either the central site or a remote site in a distributed environment based solely on the license used during installation. The central site installation coordinates data feeds from remote site installations and the network data collected from remote sites can be viewed in WhatsUp Gold reports on the central site. Together, the central and remote installations provide high visibility to multiple networks from one location.
Note that each separate central and remote server will require separate WhatsUp Gold license. Please Contact Sales for details.
The Central WhatsUp Gold server and each additional Remote server require their own WhatsUp Gold license. At installation, each server must be configured as either Central or Remote (although this can be changed any time) thus creating a distributed network. Note that while WhatsUp Gold provides a common platform for monitoring this distributed network, the Central and Remote servers need not be running the same edition or license point tier. Therefore, it is possible to create a distributed network consisting of a Central server running a 500-point Total Plus license, a remote server running a 300-point Total license and another remote server running a 100-point Pro license. Note that points cannot be shared across servers.
