Sitescope VM monitoring

Hi Sitescope experts,

 

I often heard from my colleagues that sitescope doesn't report accurate matrix from VMWare VMs. Is this true , are many customers experiencing the same and have differences in data reported by VMware vs Sitescope?

I would highly appreciate if sitescope experts throw some lights with latest updates related to current versions of Sitescopes that are used in performance testing.

 

Thanks!

Sanjay

Hello Sanjay,

Quoting from the SiteScope Monitor Reference Guide:

Inaccurate Performance Analysis Using Perfmon to Monitor CPU on VMware

Problem: SiteScope uses Perfmon to connect to the operating system of the VMware virtual

machine and query it for CPU usage of the virtual host. When used over a period of time to monitor

CPU on VMware, Perfmon provides inaccurate performance analysis.

Solution: VMware resolved this issue by integrating virtual machine performance counters such as

CPU and memory into Perfmon for Microsoft Windows guest operating systems when VMware

Tools is installed.

I am attaching the guide to this thread, if you want to take a quick look to it. Please start on page 820.
