I am a new bee to this world of forums...
I thought why not we initate a topic on IT Monitoring & Management.
With many software giants like IBM, CA, HP and even Intel looking at is as a new happing, I though discussion on this issue will be great and informative.
So lets begin with SiteScope... A IT Monitoring softawre from Mercury (Now HP).
I have seen it... Its great but... There are many features like AutoDiscover and Maps which are not included in it..
Whats your comment?
I have not used anything else to monitor systems so I can not really compare SiteScope to other offerings. It has worked well for the companies I have worked for. There are a few things that I do not like about SiteScope but that can be said by any product.
HP is supposedly making lots of changes/additions to SiteScope to better integrate it with their other systems software. Some people where I work think SiteScope will become HP's flagship monitoring product.
Ya it is so...
But I feel the web interface of SiteScope is much boring. It should have some good web interface with guages and meters as present in softwares like Sentry & OpManager. Even MOM is having better look as compared to SiteScope.
Also, the point based licensing of SiteScope is costly.
I have tried to install SiteScope on UBUNTU... It cant be installed. It can support only Red Hat this seems to be another failure for SiteScope.
