As a network engineer, at least part of your average workday is spent diagnosing and troubleshooting existing problems or investigating issues that could cause new problems. These activities often involve the tedious process of accessing individual network elements to gather information on device or subnet configuration and availability; interpreting that data; and then accessing the same elements again to provision or configure devices and services.
Most of the time you don’t need a powerhouse application to support these activities. In fact, many network engineers use a mix of tools they’ve cobbled together and then rely on brainpower and intuition to make up the difference. Although this strategy works, there is an easier way to get the job done.
Ipswitch, the maker of WhatsUp Gold, has leveraged its two decades of experience in network management software to develop the new WhatsUp Gold Engineer’s Toolkit: one application, one installation, one interface, and one easy way to simplify the common, everyday tasks of the network engineer. With its broad and robust functionality, the new Engineer’s Toolkit will help you monitor, diagnose, and troubleshoot a vast majority of network issues. With a single login and interface, the toolkit is easy to learn and use. And we've even grouped and organized Toolkit functions according to common tasks to make it easier to get the job done. No more wasted time mastering multiple tools. With one click, you can export or print the results to share with the team, making it easy for everyone to act on relevant information. With the new WhatsUp Gold Engineer’s Toolkit you can simplify most of your common, every day tasks, including: network design and planning; verifying device connectivity and DNS behavior; managing flow traffic settings and passwords; or taking remote control over your servers.
