What is most valuable?

We use this product for monitoring client user experience. It's easy to template standard monitoring configurations, and automate monitoring configuration. (NOTE: there is some missing functionality in API's). SiteScope has a lot of common... more»

How has it helped my organization?

SiteScope is deployed on our network perimeter, and gives our operations teams an end user perspective of service availability. In the past, we'd get caught up in the old silo arguments. - the server looks fine, must be the network - the... more»

What needs improvement?

Full application functionality available via the API. There are some functions you can perform managing monitors, that are only available through the UI. Version 11.2X: Within the SiS GUI, you can individually add remote servers, and then... more»

What is most valuable?

For host monitoring, agentless monitoring requires no installs or special permissions, just a regular user account on the host and firewall access to SSH, WMI, NetBIOS, etc. DBQuery, URL, and Web Service monitoring were also valuable until we... more»

How has it helped my organization?

The Monitor Templates functionality allowed us to spin up monitoring with .csv files pretty easily. We ended up using the "script" monitor the most, because the canned monitors didn't always do what we needed. It was easy enough to use, and... more»

What needs improvement?

It was a great tool for a long time. My go-to tool for everything. However, something happened at HPE years ago and investment in the development of the tool seems to have tanked. They have not kept up with browser security requirements or... more»

What is most valuable?

SiteScope, like AWS, Hyper-V. Most importantly, one can even use SiteScope for monitoring application transactions recorded using Vugen. Finally, SiteScope is available as a container for Docker, which is parts away from the installation... more»

How has it helped my organization?

SiteScope is a very flexible solution. The organization where I have implemented this solution allowed us to create custom monitoring to suite the environment. When coupled with OMi and Service Manager, it gives a 360 degree view of the... more»

What needs improvement?

Direct integration with an SMS gateway for sending critical alerts to the support SME. This will help customer investing in third party middleware solutions for SMS.

What is most valuable?

It's lightweight, and its ability to address numerous gaps in our other monitoring tools. It's a very flexible product so you can run a script out of it, even straight out of the box. Unlike other tools, you can write a script, run it, and... more»

How has it helped my organization?

Quicker time to meet the requirements of our customer. Because it's agentless as opposed to install and manage agents, we're just focused on what monitors we need and getting those deployed.

What needs improvement?

More out of the box Cloud integration and capabilities. Currently there's one for Amazon. There's numerous other platforms like, MS Office 365, Exchange or IBM. I haven't seen one for HPE. Those capabilities are solutions to where they're... more»

Simple deployment: The deployment uses protocols such as NetBios, SSH, WMI, SNMP, which means that any device with any of these protocols will be monitored. Great monitoring capabilities: The monitoring capabilities have no limit; whatever... more»

How has it helped my organization?

* Proactive monitoring based on real experience * Configuring thresholds for warning events for proactive monitoring and actioning

What needs improvement?

Even though the log system is reliable, the tool must have a database. It could be more reliable using a database repository instead of a log repository. It could even improve performance and the ability for generating cross-domain reporting... more»
