Monitor the performance and resource consumption of hosts and guests, including CPU, Memory, Disk and Interface Utilization and the availability and performance of servers and tracks live migrations. Keep an up-to-date list of all hosts and attributes.
Generate threshold-based alerts via Email, SMS, Slack or log files on CPU, memory, disk and interface utilization on virtual machines and events including virtual machine status, security related events and any alert generating an event log.
With WhatsUp Gold's Virtualization Monitoring add-on, you can monitor performance and availability of your entire infrastructure, end-to-end, including your VMware or Hyper-V environment.
Research has shown that IT shops that rely on integrated tools, rather than single-silo, troubleshoot problems faster and have fewer problems first reported by end-users.
WhatsUp Gold automatically generates an interactive map that includes a Virtualization Overlay that shows the status of and connectivity between hosts and guests.
WhatsUp Gold will maintain an updated list of all hosts and attributes as well as monitor CPU, memory, disk and interface utilization.
While Virtualization Monitoring is automatically set to poll every minute, system admins can customize their polling cycles to meet their specific needs.
Out-of-the-box reports include Virtual Hosts,Virtual Server Attributes and VM CPU, Memory, Disk and Interface Utilization reports.
Use the Virtualization Monitoring add-on to include your virtual environment in your NOC dashboard displays. WhatsUp Gold dashboards and reports allow you to create the exact custom view you need to know instantly what's up and what's down.
Your virtual environment is part of your overall infrastructure. It should be managed in that context. WhatsUp Gold allows you to see everything in context so you can quickly drill-down to issues and isolate the cause of problems that span technology silos.
Generate threshold-based alerts on VM CPU, memory, disk and interface utilization. Alerts are sent via Email, SMS, Slack or log files and integrated into the same Alert Center used for the rest of your IT environment.
Create a single dashboard view of your wired and wireless network, physical and virtual servers to quickly assess the health of your entire IT infrastructure and to identify and fix problems before they impact users, applications or the business.
Have the information you need at your fingertips including every host on your network and VM attributes such as VIM and API versions, number of CPU cores, packages and threads; virtual machines, powered on and off, and suspended.
See what's up and what's down instantly whether in the cloud or on-premises.
