SiteScope Unified Console – Multi View: Part 2
My previous blog Have you tried the Unified Console of SiteScope yet? explored the various features of the Unified Console and also its benefits. Moving on, in this blog we will explore the features of Multi-View and how its various features can be leveraged for effective monitor management.
Multi-View displays data in its hierarchical order and is ideal when you want to view monitoring status of a large environment. The beauty of this view is that you can customize the views to meet your different needs.
SiteScope Multi-View - How best can I use Multi-View?
Let us look at various ways in which you can use the dashboard customized to your needs.
View objects grouped under various categories
You can switch between different views to see data under various categories for better problem analysis. Use the Monitors view, Servers view, Tags view and Hierarchy Monitors view to group objects based on your customized needs. For example, you can group objects in various ways such as view all monitors on a particular target server, group monitors based on its tags, or view the SiteScope health group monitors.

View properties of groups or monitors
You can drill down to see detailed information on groups and monitors to facilitate problem diagnosis and troubleshoot server-related issues.
- Double-click or click + to expand a specific monitor/group to see the details about the monitor or group.
- Mouse over a monitor or group to get the info icon on left lower corner of the monitor or group rectangle. Click the icon to view the monitor or group properties.
Multi View displaying properties of a selected monitor
The properties window also provides an option to re-run a monitor from this window .
To view more details of monitor properties, click the monitor properties button to view the monitor details in the Manage tab.
View alerts for a monitor
- If you have the required permissions to view the alerts, you can view all the alerts that are created for a monitor.
View acknowledgements for a monitor
Monitor details screen displays the last 5 acknowledgment with details and comments for a monitor. Acknowledgements are used to track resolution of problems that SiteScope detects in your system and network infrastructure. With this function, SiteScope keeps a record of when the problem was acknowledged, what actions have been taken, and by which user. Click the Add Acknowledgment button to add a comment acknowledging the monitor status.
Note: Acknowledgments can only be deleted from the Acknowledge Log (available from the Acknowledge Monitors In Group dialog box in the SiteScope Dashboard). Deleted acknowledgments are not displayed in the Acknowledgments list in Multi-View.
View metric trends
If you have monitor history enabled, a graph for each metric is displayed under “details” tab on the info dialog. The graph displays the metric trend for the last 10 hours.
Configure Multi-View Settings
You can customize properties of Multi View based on your requirements. Go to Infrastructure Preferences > Multi-View Settings to configure the values for properties.
You can set the following properties:
- Configuration change refresh frequency (seconds): Wait time for refreshing configuration changes such as adding, deleting, moving group/monitor, and renaming group/monitor name.
- Runtime data refresh frequency (seconds): Wait time for refreshing run time data such as monitor/group status changes and enable/disable information.
- Maximum number of multi views. Number of views that can be open. After the maximum is reached, you get an information message. The value can be between 1 and 20.
- Interval before clearing view cache since last used (seconds). Wait time before the cache can be cleared since a view was last used. This value impacts the maximum number of views that can be opened.
Get the maximum out of Multi-View!
Now that we discussed on different uses of Multi-View depending on your needs and the properties that you can configure for the Multi-View, go on and use the feature and see how easy monitor management can be!
