Prerequisites

Below is a list of prerequisites that are required to use this monitor:

  • Before setting up the SiteScope monitor, ensure that SiteScope has been installed on a server.

  • You can install SiteScope on the same machine as the Controller, or on a dedicated server. If SiteScope is installed on a machine other than the Controller, verify that the SiteScope machine is accessible from the Controller machine.

  • If your monitor accesses a server outside of your internal network, you may need to set up a web proxy to collect data from it. For details, see Prerequisites.
