Dashboarding, Reporting, and Logging

WhatsUp Gold Dashboarding, Reporting, and Logging provides rich summaries, dashboard-like views, interactivity, and charting capabilities needed to leverage event, monitor, resource availability, and system attribute data along with the necessary export and scheduling controls to distribute this data to stakeholders.

Track, journal, and distribute WhatsUp Gold monitor data

This section outlines easy steps and best practices for tracking health, status, and performance data for your network devices, infrastructure, and applications.

Begin your logging and reporting efforts:

  1. Start with one of the following:
    • An existing dashboard (ANALYZE menu > Dashboards) in full or just as a starting point that you can add views, logs, and reports to.
    • A built-in full-page report (ANALYZE menu > Performance, Network, Device, Inventory, Alerts, Traffic Analysis)
    • A built-in log view (ANALYZE menu > Logs).
  2. Select devices and apply settings.

    Note: For scheduled reports, it is best practice to create an additional WhatsUp Gold user to ensure that the scheduled export and email of report data maintains consistent settings, graphing modes, and format. WhatsUp Gold Report Settings WUG17.0N-SP2-REPORTS-SETTINGS-IMG (settings for graphing, top n, and thresholding, for example) persist based on the report instance, the current device selected, and the WhatsUp Gold login you use.

  3. Distribute monitor data:
    • Share dashboard views with stakeholders or team members that log in as other WhatsUp Gold users.
    • E-mail reports, charts, and data to stakeholders and team members.

Use these components to leverage and visualize your monitoring data
