Sitescope: Monitoring system

Hi Everyone,

Wish you all a Happy new year 2010.
Today we will see monitoring tool that can be used for monitoring multi node oracle ebusiness suite, oracle Health sciences suite or any other application or server.
When the application becomes multi node HA environment, manual monitoring becomes impossible with meager resources.

With multiple monitoring systems available from different vendors in the market, Sitescope is used widely. Not to forget we have OEM from Oracle to monitor databases, applications, servers. Sitescope is similar one. Not Agent based. Agents will not be there on the target machine that you monitor.

Sitescope is a HP product. You can monitor Midtier processes, URL's, utilization of the server, response time of the midtiers and much more. You can set threshold for a specific characteristics, get alerted for any critical/warning conditions.

You can get more details from HP site.^849_4000_100__

Even though we have different products, I still see DBA's uses Scripting Unix/Perl to monitor specific tasks. Advantage of manual scripting is no vendor dependency, bug fixing is in DBA's control. More over the question arises who monitors the monitor itself!! I will cover more with the monitor in another article.


This article is not to persuade any of the readers to buy the product. This is informational article about the products that can be used to manage Ebusiness suite/health sciences applications or another applications/servers.
