HP SiteScope application is a solution for IT infrastructure availability and performance monitor, e.g. network components, operating systems, applications or single services. This application is configured and managed through web interface, no special application are needed. There’s also no need to install agents on monitored systems.
SiteScope contains over 90 types of monitors, that are able to monitor availability, response time or usage of many types of devices or applications. Single monitors can be grouped. Alerts for situations when limit values are reached can be defined: send email message, SNMP trap or start a script.
SiteScope application can create reports as well. Reports can be created over selected monitors or groups of monitors. There is possibility to create automatically periodical reports or create ad-hoc reports for selected monitors and time period. Reports are in form of HTML files including graphs and tables, displaying minimum and maximum of observed values, or XML files suitable for machine processing.
Other powerfull tool is monitor template, that allows fast and efficient creation of new monitors or mass change in actual monitors. Thanks to template usage it is possible to monitor large networks and manage monitor settings in consistent state.
