Quotes From Members

We asked business professionals to review the solutions they use. Here are some excerpts of what they said:

Pros
"The Monitor Templates functionality allowed us to spin up monitoring with .csv files pretty easily.""There's no agent you need installed on the servers. In our environment, we have some servers out of our control so we cannot manage them. We use SiteScope to monitor the availability, the resources on the servers, etc. This allows us to do this job without installing agents so there's no need to take care of anything on the server.""The product's ability to monitor systems and applications and send alerts and create support tickets are the most valuable features of the product.""For the system environment, SiteScope can be useful."

Cons
"They have not kept up with browser security requirements or advances in GUIs, they switched to a corruptible database architecture instead of text config files.""Sometimes in a huge environment, I think the documentation does not provide the required calculations so you can't know what the required set up should be. You need to test.""It may lack some features other products in the category have like more detailed transaction tracking.""SiteScope isn't productive if you want to monitor RAM or if you want to monitor some URL."

"I would like to see better integration with other products.""Technical support could use some improvement."
