WhatsUp Gold Distributed Edition extends the capabilities of the application to multiple remote networks. This solution includes a central installation and one or more remote installations of WhatsUp Gold. A single instance of WhatsUp Gold is determined to be either the central site or a remote site in a distributed environment based solely on the license used during installation. The central site installation coordinates data feeds from remote site installations and the network data collected from remote sites can be viewed in WhatsUp Gold reports on the central site. Together, the central and remote installations provide high visibility to multiple networks from one location.
