LR and sitescope

I have read about sitescope that its a monitorng tool. But why do we use it with Loadrunner if Loadrunner has its own monitors.
Also, what do we need to do to integrate sitescope with LR. on which machine/server do we need to install sitescope and what are the steps of integration with Loadrunner.

Re: LR and sitescope

LR comes with basic monitors

Sitescope provides 60+monitors..Its an out of box monitoring tool.

If look at list LR monitors, Site scope is listed there.....all you need is site scope license to enable this.

While installing sitescope, you can choose to integrate with LR.

Please refer Sitescope install guide.....for better understanding.

Re: LR and sitescope

Do I need to install sitescope separately from the hp site or we can also do that from the loadrunner set up file where there is an option for site scope in additional components.
Does it make any difference from where i install sitescope.
Also, do i need to have separate license for using sitescope.

Re: LR and sitescope

You can install Sitescope that comes with LoadRunner - additional components. By default you will get a 500 Points Free Sitescope license with LoadRunner. You can install Sitescope on any machine that the monitoring machines can be accessible. Using LoadRunner - Sitescope monitor available in Controller, you can view the metrics configured in Sitescope.

Re: LR and sitescope

You can install it from the LR setup itself.

I would recommend you to install it on the machine, other than your LR.

Re: LR and sitescope

Suppose i have already installed Loadrunner and how can i install sitescope if it should be done on loadrunner system itself or if it has to be installed on different system then how can i map these 2 systems?

Re: LR and sitescope

You can install LR & SiS on same machine if you have enough system resources and there shouldn't be any compatibility issue.

You can configure all your monitors in SiS. During the load test configure the Sitescope monitor by providing URL & Credentials of the SiS.

Re: LR and sitescope

As I mentioned earlier you can pull the metrics using Sitescope graph in Controller. Before that you need to configure all the required monitors in the Sitescope page. LoadRunner just pulls the metrics of the corresponding monitors from Sitescope.

Refer to LoadRunner monitor reference for more details.
