Welcome to Ipswitch WhatsUp Gold v12.3

Welcome to Ipswitch WhatsUp Gold v12.3, the powerful network monitoring solution designed to help you protect your changing business infrastructure. WhatsUp Gold provides standards-based monitoring of any network device, service, or application on TCP/IP and Windows networks.

WhatsUp Gold lets you discover devices on your network, initiate monitoring of those devices, and execute actions based on device state changes, so you can identify network failures before they become catastrophic.

Discovery and Mapping

The WhatsUp Gold wizard-based discovery process searches for devices on your network and lets you decide which devices to monitor. You can view monitored devices as a list of devices or as a graphical map.


WhatsUp Gold actively polls devices to determine their status. You can use active monitors to poll services on a device and to passively listen for messages sent across the network. Performance monitors track device performance by checking and reporting on device resources, such as disk, CPU, and interfaces.


Depending on the responses received from polling, WhatsUp Gold fires actions to notify you of changes on your network. Actions aid in problem resolution through assorted options such as email and cell phone alerts, or service restarts.

Reporting and Workspaces

Reports ensure 360-degree visibility into network status and performance, and historical data for devices and monitors. Workspaces let you focus on segments of the network and create your own views of report data. These views position crucial network data in one location, which allows for quick and easy access. WhatsUp Gold offers more than 100 summary reports, or workspace reports, that WhatsUp users can place into customized workspaces.
