WhatsUp Gold 2020 makes it easier than ever to find and fix problems fast with usability improvements to mapping, more and better reports, improved scalability and performance options as well as new REST APIs for integration.
Customizable Device Icons - Not seeing a device role icon in the library that fits? Now you can upload your own so the map looks exactly the way you want, We’ve also added optional pulsing icons to indicate changed states so your NOC or wallboard will be more likely to catch your eye.
Optional Browser Timeout - Timeout for security or never timeout for NOC screens and wallboards.
More and Better Reports - New reports give you more views of your network with fewer clicks. Filter live activity reports by device, see more details for all assets, see IP/MAC address details and more.
Scalability Improvements - Including better memory usage for map creation and improved link calculation.
Public REST API Support - WhatsUp Gold includes a powerful REST API that makes it easy to integrate it with your own systems or scripts. An extensive suite of REST API calls let you automate your workload by extracting specific data from WhatsUp Gold or inputting information from a separate system or script. You can extract current status information for use by another system, automatically put devices into maintenance mode before making changes, add or remove devices, add monitors and much, much more. WhatsUp Gold 2020 adds even more REST API calls for assigning, querying, updating and deleting monitors. Learn more here
Network Traffic Analysis Improvements – This feature lets users display their NTA devices and flows geographically on a world map while also allowing for more detailed name resolution. NTA will now use data received from wireless access points to improve name resolution whenever possible. This makes traffic analysis easier and more effective
Cloud Application Performance Monitoring – WhatsUp Gold now has the ability to monitor AWS and Azure from within APM, integrating Cloud Monitoring with all the powerful features that APM enables. This makes it easier than ever before to monitor cloud-based applications in AWS or Azure environments.
Device Active States Report Enhancements – The Device Active Monitor States report has been improved to allow better filtering via monitor types, monitor states (up/down/unknown/maintenance) and all dates. In addition, the remote active states report will now report on states across multiple remote environments.
Live Activity Status Bar & Report - See exactly what WhatsUp Gold is doing in real time at the bottom of the interface – every status change, every alert and every changed value. Click on that bar to bring up the Live Activity Status Report where you can see all activity, filter it by type and severity and click directly on each item for more details. Not only is this an excellent way for administrators to see what’s happening as it happens, it also makes a great NOC display.
Suspicious Connections Report – Use Network Traffic Analysis to identify and reveal traffic connections and conversations with suspicious IP addresses inside or outside your network, allowing you to act quickly and take appropriate measures to correct the threat and minimize damage. A new IP Reputation library gives you control over suspicious IP address lists with the ability to retrieve up to date blacklists from independent sources or create your own. In combination with this report, you can also configure and send alerts based on abnormal user network behavior patterns.
Configuration Comparison Report – More easily view configuration archives from multiple devices and compare them side by side to see what’s changed and when. This makes tracking down configuration discrepancies much simpler and easier.
See what's up and what's down instantly whether in the cloud or on-premises.
