WhatsConnected is a cost-effective Layer 2/3 discovery, mapping, inventory, and asset reporting tool. Use WhatsConnected to automatically discover, map, inventory and document your network (devices, servers, workstations, virtual resources, hardware, and software assets) and port-to-port connectivity in minutes! With WhatsConnected, you can easily document your network, topology maps and network diagrams for regulatory compliance, ensure complete accuracy, and give your operations teams the power to immediately visualize how everything is connected.
Improve visibility, improve performance
WhatsUp Gold WhatsConnected allows you to completely visualize your physical network topology and understand how all devices on your IT infrastructure are interconnected. Expanding upon the impressive features and functions of the powerful network mapping tool WhatsConnected offers the ability to automatically discover, document and classify virtual machines on your network running VMware. With a unique combination of discovery technologies, WhatsConnected reveals detailed physical topology maps as well as proprietary device asset and configuration data not found with other network mapping tools.
Understand your network
If you can't understand how devices in your network are connected, their interdependencies and where they are located, then locating problems and resolving them before the impact of a failure is noticed is much more difficult than it needs to be. Establishing that device connectivity is not the source of the problems is one of the initial steps to troubleshooting network issues. Without WhatsConnected, connectivity between devices or systems has to be manually documented by network management personnel, and this process requires significant time and effort to validate and document physical connectivity. WhatsConnected automates this process for you, and now goes a step further to discover and map out your virtual network as well.
The industry's most comprehensive discovery and mapping solution
WhatsUp Gold WhatsConnected moves far beyond typical IP discovery tools by assembling information from every device in the network and providing detailed network maps. You will gain access to critical network information such as physical connectivity, device type, asset/inventory and configuration information. With the total insight offered by WhatsConnected, you can understand your network from top to bottom and focus on keeping it running securely and at peak performance.
Total insight for top performance
Unlike manual documentation processes, you can be assured that the connectivity and topology information generated by WhatsConnected is complete and accurate, as it is based on actual device information that the tool gathers. You will fully understand which routers are attached to which switches, and how switches are connected to one another or any other device in your network. When problems occur, you can locate them fast without having to crawl through wiring closets to visually verify connectivity.
Discover: view all connections and address potential issues
Using a number of innovative discovery technologies, in combination with standards based and proprietary mechanisms, WhatsConnected finds all the connected devices on the network, including those without IP addresses. In addition to using standard Layer 3 discovery mechanisms, WhatsConnected takes it a step further by employing Layer 2 technologies such as Address Resolution Protocol (ARP), Link Layer Discovery Protocol (LLDP) and manufacturer proprietary mechanisms to discover information about devices and their connectivity.
Map: see your network in a whole new light
Gaining insight into the network and understanding how devices are connected has never been easier. WhatsConnected simplifies the tedious task with auto-generated topology maps that give you full visibility into the physical, logical and virtual connectivity, including IP and VLAN-specific information.
Search: pinpoint specific connections in secondsProduct Highlights
Now you can quickly search and discover how devices are connected - saving precious time and effort in the process. With detailed device views, you can quickly zero in to find out what's connected to what. WhatsConnected offers the industry's fastest approach to finding the location and validating connectivity of any device on the network.
