Set up the SiteScope monitor

This task describes how to set up the SiteScope monitor.

  1. Prerequisites

    • 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 Use a proxy server.
