Pros

The software has free updates which is awesome and the community board is very helpful. I would recommend this product to any IT environment that is looking for network monitoring solution.
Ease of use for WhatsUp Gold is great. The product does what is advertised and provides a great system for notification and analysis.
The cost of this product is great. I know there are other products out there but WhatsUp Gold has been solid for our school corporation.

Pros

Overall experience has been good, it does what it says and it has been very useful for monitoring our systems.
The ease of setup was wonderful and it served almost all our needs out of the box.
I love that it includes native support for a lot of brands and products like Servers, Routers, Firewalls, Switches, Workstations, Software, etc. The ease of use of PRTG is incredible.

Cons

Sometimes when organizing items on the screen I accidentally move wrong and then all my server/website objects end up in strange places on the screen.
Bulk editing is cumbersome and import from lists does not work well.
The biggest problem with this product is the performance/capacity of the product to generate graphs. Using java to fetch data from the database to paint pages is slow.

Cons

Having to license and manage a windows server just for PRTG is a bummer.
I run a single server with close to 10,000 sensors, which is considered the maximum for a single server and I see performance problems from time to time because I run it at red line.
Too hard to read sometimes about notification.

The interface is getting more cumbersome and tedious to navigate

Reviewed 6 years ago

General monitoring was great, but it's become more difficult to configure for the way we wanted to use it. Free tools now will do the same thing with the same amount of work.

Pros

It was the ease of use, but that's going away. The ability to use a single service monitor to monitor multiple devices. Too bad thats going away.

Cons

It's gotten cumbersome to use and now the monitors all need to be scripted vs a generic monitor you can use for multiple devices.

Cons

The product has limited functionality and is inflexible to use as a 24x7 monitoring tool. Software updates may fix some problems but often introduce more problems. Overall I am very disappointed with What's Up Gold.

Hi, I'm sorry that WhatsUp Gold hasn't lived up to your expectations. Our records show that your team had issues with an upgrade. I wanted to let you know that I've reached out to your Ipswitch Account Rep, Shane Lusby, and he will be in touch immediately to make sure we can address any issues that you continue to have.

excellent monitoring software

Reviewed 5 years ago

we started using this software many years ago. originally, we started before the Gold version existed. it has been running ever since, and it usually provides the first warning when something goes wrong. it also tells us when something is starting to look a little funny, so most of the time we can address the issue before it becomes an issue.

Pros

you can monitor just about anything with this software. that's the whole point of monitoring. if you can't monitor everything you want, you need to find a different product.

Cons

feature wise, i have no problems with the software. however, it is a little pricey. it's not anywhere near as expensive as some other monitoring suites, but it is still a little pricey for a small business.

Benefit of proactively maintaining the full network

Pros

It allows me to monitor all of the network remotely. I'm able to monitor switches, websites, computers, temperature, etc. I just need to only look at my email to be able to see down statuses of devices

Cons

Taking the time to research how to configure monitoring takes up a lot of my time. Wish there were more instructional videos.

Very easy to setup and upgrade. Easy to use interface. Netflow and performance monitoring interfaces are clear to read. Network graphics maps are pretty neat.

Great software for network monitoring!

Reviewed 3 years ago

It's great to monitor the network and get the notifications, but we really miss the scrolling maps.

Pros

We've been using What's Up Gold for almost 2 decades and it works well. It helps keep our users happy and less unexpected service calls.

Cons

We don't like that it doesn't offer the scrolling maps like we had prior. We upgraded from an older version that we used to have the scrolling maps on a large LCD monitor in our NOC so our techs could identify faults easily. The newest edition of this software doesn't have it. Seems rather resource intensive too (server side).

Pros

The fact that WhatsUp Gold is so versatile is a huge win. You can do basically anything you need with it, and with us having a two person IT Ops team to cover the availability of all systems and services, it really acts as an all-seeing set of eyes into our infrastructure.

Cons

With versatility comes complexity of implementation. It's not as easy as just adding a new monitor. You have to have the type selected, include a maintenance schedule, etc.

Initial WUG Review for New User

Reviewed 4 years ago
Pros

Being able to monitor all of our devices/system/portal in a single product with notification emails for different alerts that we set up. This allows us to proactively monitor the online status of all of our devices. The initial setup was relatively easy and everyday use is fairly simple. But you have the option of customizing how the product monitors your environment.

Cons

I would like to see a comprehensive Administrator Manual in PDF format. I don't like the current online version of Help and Documentation. It sometimes give false positive, such as email alerts that ping is down, but when I ping the device, I can ping it.

WhatsUp Gold Replaces Monitoring Service

Reviewed 4 years ago

WhatsUP gold is monitoring the same things, if not more, than an IT services company was doing for about $500/mo. This saved us a huge amount of money in the long run and was totally worth the configuration issues we had.

Pros

Customizable to monitor only the network parts/components that we wanted monitored. Able to set it to send email and SMS (via email) alerts to multiple users.

Cons

Network discovery was a bit slow and clunky. After a network change we had to delete the current monitors and do a complete re-scan or it doubled up the devices.
