HP SITESCOPE 10.1 MLU SW E-MEDIA is rated 4.0 out of 5 by 3.
Rated 5 out of 5 by Diego Caicedo Lescano from Deployment uses protocols such as NetBios, SSH, WMI, SNMP. Any device with any of these protocols will be monitored.Valuable Features: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 you can imagine, you can monitor, even using URL monitors, database query monitors, and formula composite monitors, which are not common in other tools.Reporting: You have a lot of reports using different criteria - for example, dates, filters, events, and status - which let you analyze the monitored data, convert it into information and take actions.Event-based actions: You can simply send an e-mail or take actions like restart the server, restart the service, etc.Agentless MonitoringDependencyImprovements to My Organization:* Proactive monitoring based on real experience* Configuring thresholds for warning events for proactive monitoring and actioningRoom for 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 for better governance.Other Advice:It has a wide variety of preconfigured monitors, and great capability for monitoring whatever you wish, including configuring formulas for monitoring.It is an agentless tool, and very easy to implement. For better performance, try to use another disk different than the OS.Configure HP SiteScope restart for releasing HW resources.Disclaimer: I am a real user, and this review is based on my own experience and opinions.

Rated 4 out of 5 by William Linn from It has multiple monitors that can be deployed OOTB, which includes basic system monitors for CPU, Disk, Memory, NIC's, etc.Valuable Features:It has multiple monitors that can be deployed OOTB, which includes basic system monitors for CPU, Disk, Memory, NIC's, etc. It does not use an agent, which might tax system resources.Improvements to My Organization:It has been used in a wide area of monitoring systems and network devices in my company.Room for Improvement:Licensing is a little steep.SiS, the abbreviated acronym for the tool, used to be owned by another company. You could purchase the product with unlimited monitors for $2500. Since HP's acquisition of the product, licensing is done on a points-per-monitor basis. Each individual monitor costs x number of points, an HP sales rep has those exact numbers, which change, seemingly., at whim! :-) You just get an error that you cannot add more monitors without additional licensing! With OOTB you get a few, not enough though to monitor any numbers in a enterprise. And, with literally hundreds of nodes and application monitors, database, web, etc. available, costs can get steep!Deployment Issues:We haven't had any issues with deployment.Stability Issues:We haven't had any issues with stability.Scalability Issues:We haven't had any issues with scalability.Disclaimer: I am a real user, and this review is based on my own experience and opinions.
