Use Cases and Deployment Scope

We looked at introducing it as a general overview monitoring system. We started out in the network area for simple monitoring of network bandwidth, ping and smnp monitoring. From there we plan to expand it to server monitoring; CPU, disk space, memory, and overall performance monitoring. Last for the virtualization and cloud monitoring. We have been in the virtualization area for years and slowly moving into the cloud.

While not a "one stop shop", HP SiteScope is a highly customizable monitoring and alerting solution.

Use Cases and Deployment Scope

In my previous role, HP SiteScope was critical for us in our business. We mainly used it for monitoring, alerting, and notifying on the different servers and I.T. infrastructure equipment. It was definitely a necessity to have SiteScope up and running at all times so that we would be alerted in the event of another system or server having an issue or a problem.

SiteScope was mainly used by the I.T. Infrastructure team. However, other internal teams did make use of its specific alerting capabilities as SiteScope is very customizable.

The main business problem that SiteScope addressed was "how do we get alerts, notifications, and/or emails when there are true issues in our environment?" SiteScope was flexible enough to satisfy being the answer to this question. I will say this, that it, in and of itself, was not the sole solution, but rather a piece of our overall greater monitoring and alerting solution.

HP SiteScope - Brief overview

Use Cases and Deployment Scope

HP SiteScope was used as one of the enterprise wide monitoring tools. The primary purpose was for web/URL related monitoring for internal and external websites. The tool would alert if any website is down. Also, the tool was used for agentless monitoring for CPU, memory and disk of servers where an agent cannot be installed.

Use Cases and Deployment Scope

We are currently using HP Sitescope mostly to emulate a user using VuGen LoadRunner Scripts to log into our website to ensure our products are online. We also are using some of the monitors to verify services are running.

Best infrastructure monitoring tool that companies can use

Score 8 out of 10

Use Cases and Deployment Scope

We are using HP sitescope as one of the monitoring tool for alerts along with splunk. We use it along with shell scripts that will be triggered through Sitescope and send alerts based on the response. Splunk is not designed particularly for infrastructure monitoring and with Sitescope we have default monitoring for CPU processes, memory etc. We also do JVM monitoring with Sitescope which is difficult to do with splunk.
