  • Stay in Control: Know exactly what inventory is deployed on your network, even hard to track associations between physical servers & virtual resources. Understand device interdependencies and how they are affected by changes and failures.
  • Track Changes: With scheduled discoveries, and up-to-date dynamic maps, diagrams and topology views you can accurately understand, track and document the evolution of your network, with no effort – it just works.
  • Simplify Troubleshooting tasks: Rapidly pinpoint the root cause of connectivity issues to minimize downtime and gain insight into how your network topology and infrastructure can be configured to minimize potential conflicts and optimize performance.

WhatsUp Gold has grown in features and capabilities from an SMB (small and midsize business) network management tool to something appropriate for the enterprise, yet the product still remembers its roots as an easy-to-master tool. However, virtualization has added another layer of complexity for WUG and its network management peers.

WhatsVirtual brings a great deal of functionality to WhatsUp Gold and will turn out to be a must-have tool for WUG users who are incorporating ESX or ESXi into their server environments. Of course, as part of WUG, WhatsVirtual is only applicable to shops running WUG, and while the new module is a valuable addition.


A closer look at WhatsVirtual

WhatsVirtual is designed to do exactly as the name implies: show what is virtual in the enterprise. Following are the component that necessary

  • Visualization of the world of virtual components is only the starting point.
  • A good management tool needs to deliver discovery, inventory, reporting and control,
  • Auditing capabilities, all of which WhatsVirtual delivers effectively, albeit indirectly.

As an add-on module for WUG, WhatsVirtual leverages many of the management and reporting capabilities native to WUG.

With WUG, that is accomplished using a discovery wizard, which I launched from the tools menu on the main WUG GUI. The wizard starts when you choose “discover devices” from the menu, which then allowed to initiate a discovery session.
Discovery sessions can be launched manually or set up to run at predetermined times via a schedule. That proves to be a handy feature on networks that change a lot. The scans can use a range of IP addresses or a single IP address to discover a VMware host. There are also advanced options available under a submenu, which allows a discovery scan to be customized.

WhatsVirtual works hand-in-hand with VMware’s API, which means users will have access to threshold configuration information and Alert Center workflows. In other words, it becomes quite simple to define alerts for VM hosts and guests. Those alerts can be fine-tuned to create notifications of potential problems, such as utilization exceeding preset levels or disk space issues.

The idea here is that I no longer needed to use VMware vSphere in conjunction with WUG to monitor VM hosts and guests—it can all be done from within WUG. That brings virtual and physical machine management much closer to the single dashboard ideology, where all major functions can be accomplished from a single management application.

WhatsVirtual  is new technology which bring virtual and physical machine into much more real and closer to reality, any further information please refer to http://e-spincorp.com/espinv3/index.php/ipswitch/whatsup-gold-network-management
