Monitor up to 20,000 devices from a single interface. Create new pollers whenever and wherever they are required. Balance monitoring loads, add redundancy and maximize performance. Add pollers specific to different business units or customers to support specific SLAs.

Poller Configuration

Polling is the active watching, or monitoring, of your network with WhatsUp Gold. This is done in a variety of ways, depending on the service monitors you have configured on your devices. The default polling method is accomplished through Internet Control Message Protocol (ICMP). The default polling interval for WhatsUp Gold is 60 seconds.

A small amount of data is sent from the WhatsUp Gold computer across the network to the device it is watching. If the device is up, it echoes the data back to the WhatsUp Gold computer. WhatsUp Gold considers a device is down when it does not send the data back.

Using Scalability Pollers with WhatsUp Gold

The WhatsUp Gold Scalability poller is a separate application installed on any Windows system on the network. The Scalability poller is in addition to the poller integrated within WhatsUp Gold. Extending polling activity across multiple pollers increases the number of devices for which WhatsUp Gold can poll and collect data to send back to the WhatsUp Gold system. Using additional pollers can efficiently scale polling operations to a larger number of network devices, ultimately providing the capacity to monitor and manage larger networks. Scalability pollers can also simplify traversing across private networks.

More specifically, scalability pollers installed on your WhatsUp Gold system transmit specific data elements to the WhatsUp Gold server for reporting. However, note that these pollers only support selected features and their use is not necessarily a substitute for a full WhatsUp Gold Distributed set up depending on your network environment and monitoring needs.

Currently, the following features must be handled by the WhatsUp Gold server:
