I highly rate the performance of this product due to its efficient performance for the time we have been working with it. It is cost-effective, and the deployment took the IT team a short time as compared to most products. It has integrated the company applications effectively to cope with the usual business activities without interfering with normal operations. The security models installed in the completed applications enhance the safety of our data in the entire enterprise.

SiteScope is definitely well suited in an HP server environment. It is also well suited for virtual server environments. It is also well suited for those who are happy with email and text based message alerting. It may not be appropriate in other environments where monitoring physical components is critical. Because HP SiteScope does not monitor certain physical components, it does fall short of being able to be a "one stop shop solution" in regard to monitoring. It is not well suited for those looking for logic in how alerts are sent and cascade to other people or groups.

Pros

Cisco

  • you can easily identify where there is a problem in the code at the time of error.
  • With Network Visibility, you can see how much bandwidth your applications are using between nodes.
  • You can easily detect SQL statements or stored procedures that consume most of the system resources and get statistical data.

Micro Focus

  • Alerts can be configured as per business requirement.
  • It can take remedial action, when defined for a particular situation.
  • Severity, priority of tickets which are created upon a trigger can be well defined.
  • The teams which need to be alerted can be configured in the tool itself, in case of any event.

Cons

Cisco

  • Synergy with Logic Monitor which we use for our infrastructure monitoring.
  • a fair amount of continual configuration to prevent false positives
  • There are a lot of technologies that App Dynamics covers and documentation is a bit of a weak spot in finding clear documentation, configuring dashboards, etc.

  • Sitescope is particularly used for infrastructure monitoring. Other kinds of monitors cannot be set using HP sitescope.
  • Sitescope cannot have graphs like splunk which is why we have splunk as well which is an additional cost for the company.
  • We can't have a direct regex operations on data inside HP sitescope. We need to have the logs placed as a single log and then do that.

      AppDynamics has its own community site that includes forums and a knowledge base. On the forums, you can converse with other members of the community and ask technical questions as you have them. Though this forum isn’t filled with people there are active members for you to gain some valuable insights.

      Can't really answer this. Setup was easy and no support has really been used at this point.

      AppDynamics has been a great solution in unlocking the most hidden business opportunities. I have not come across such an effective platform for monitoring database and application performance. The learning curve is simple, and it is easy to understand how it works in a new environment. Security to our databases on the company servers has been guaranteed with automated alerts when there are malware attacks.

      • Sitescope does exactly what it was purchased for. It may take some time to set it up but once its set up it is a rock solid product.
