Set up the SiteScope Integration

This task describes how to set up your LoadRunner machine to integrate with the SiteScope monitor. For an overview of the SiteScope monitor, see SiteScope Resource Monitoring.

You can configure SiteScope to connect anonymously without authentication or with authentication.

Set up SiteScope without authentication

  1. Open SiteScope and configure its monitors.
  2. Open the URL: http://localhost:8888/SiteScope/cgi/go.exe/SiteScope?page=topazVerify and confirm that you can see Topaz XML data.

  3. Open the xmlmonitorshared.ini file, in the <LR_Install>\dat\monitors folder and edit the SiteScope section as follows:

    Example: [SiteScope]
    ;ExtensionDll=SiteScopeMonExt.dll
    MetricDataURL=SiteScope/cgi/go.exe/SiteScope?page=topaz
    MetricListURL=SiteScope/cgi/go.exe/SiteScope?page=topaz&operation=config
    DefaultPort=8888
    DlgTitle=SiteScope Monitor
    RefreshMetricList=1
    EnableAccount=1

Set up SiteScope with authentication as a non-anonymous user

  1. Open SiteScope and configure its monitors.
  2. Modify the SiteScope administrator to have a user ID and password.
  3. Add a new SiteScope user with a user ID and password.
  4. Verify that you can see Topaz XML data at the URL http://localhost:8888/SiteScope/cgi/go.exe/SiteScope?page=topaz&account=login1 (note that Topaz requires a user index rather than a user name to view XML data)
  5. Open C:\Program Files (x86)\HPE\LoadRunner\dat\monitors\xmlmonitorshared.ini and edit the SiteScope section as follows (changes noted in bold type):

    Example: [SiteScope]
    ;ExtensionDll=SiteScopeMonExt.dll
    MetricDataURL=SiteScope/cgi/go.exe/SiteScope?page=topaz&account=login1
    MetricListURL=SiteScope/cgi/go.exe/SiteScope?page=topaz&operation=config&account=login1
    DefaultPort=8888
    DlgTitle=SiteScope Monitor
    RefreshMetricList=1
    EnableAccount=1
    QueryLoginInfo=1
