WhatsUp Gold is a simple monitoring tool which can be used to monitor the entire infrastructure in a smooth, cost effective manner with minimal IT headcount required to operate. Database monitoring is not something whats up gold specialize in. it can not deep dive into database related issues where you have to do performance analysis. In our implementation, we did not buy NetFlow monitoring which is an inbuilt add-on (need to purchase extra) of whatsup gold tool. Because whatsup gold monitoring formula works on snmp traps and wmi credentials, it only works best for windows environment and will also do the job for Linux servers. Aix environment is something this tool does not have the capability to monitor in and out.

I find the functionality of this product to be very good. Our main use of WhatsUp is to monitor production systems for up/down status and to send us alerts when a system, or one of its critical components or services, is down. Also high on our list are the performance monitoring alerts that notify us when a system is experiencing high CPU load, excessive memory or bandwidth utilization, or when disk storage is nearing capacity. These alerts have allowed us to preemptively handle problems before they reach critical levels. We often use the interface bandwidth history to troubleshoot performance issues and to determine when additional bandwidth is needed or when we are paying for unneeded bandwidth. We have recently added flow monitoring to our arsenal, giving us the ability to accurately pinpoint the source of bandwidth issues, and better evaluate how our network is being used. The user interface is intuitive and easy to customize. Also very important for a cost-conscious business like ours, the licensing and support are very affordable. Overall, I give WhatsUp Gold very high marks.

Product is fantastic, however the latest version WUG2017 is a complete change from the 2016 product and is full of bugs and no longer meets our needs.

Have worked with IPSwitch's WhatsUp Gold product for years and have participated in beta and pre-release testing whenever possible. Support has always been knowledgeable and helpful in resolving issues that I can't solve myself or via the forums. The product has matured over the years and seems to be constantly evolving
