Over the past year, several customers have told us they use WhatsUp Gold for monitoring their network devices and said it would be very useful to be able to import LANGuardian data into their WhatsUp Gold environment.

LANGuardian includes a REST API that you can use to incorporate traffic data from the LANGuardian database into WhatsUp Gold and other applications and formats, including:

  • SolarWinds Orion
  • Microsoft Excel (using the Get Data From Web command in Excel 2007 and higher versions)
  • Comma-separated values (CSV), the de facto standard for incorporating data files into databases and spreadsheet applications
  • HTML IFRAME content that you can include in any web page

This video looks at how you can use the NetFort LANGuardian with your WhatsUp Gold installation.

The integration works by creating a custom HTML element on the WhatsUp Gold dashboard. The source of these can be got from LANGuardian, just run a report and at the top you will see am API button which has the option to generate the IFRAME code. 

Note: In this video, we're using LANGuardian v12.2.20 and WhatsUp Gold v16.2.
