It is perfectly suited for keeping all your developers up-to-date with the latest best practices. In the case of a really huge system, the possibility to identify the most critical line of script that needs to be fixed for the most severe production issues is a huge benefit. It will not be that useful for smaller projects with just a few people in the project team.

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.

Cons

germain CRT

  • Email alerts configuration is not user-friendly
  • Tuning recommendations that are provided by germain CRT are not always right.

Micro Focus SiteScope

  • 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.

We cannot have any complaints regarding support provided for our deployments by germain CRT. We had some worries that with such big ecosystems of plugins issues are imminent, but it really only takes a few minutes for you to add a new plugin and germain CRT support team is happy to do it for you.

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

Alternatives Considered

germain CRT

germain CRT has a richer set of features when compared with its competition. The pricing policy of germain CRT works better for our type of products. The free trial allowed us to thoroughly evaluate if required features can be found and integrated to our advantage. Availability of both on-premise and cloud deployments is very important for us and not every vendor has it.

SiteScope can be easily deployed. It required less care feeding as it is quite stable. Compared to other products which are agent-based, HP SiteScope can monitor remotely without any issues. We selected HP Sitescope as it was easier to manage compared to the other tools which require more human resources to manage.
