We are upgrading to sitescope 10.50 or the latest version withing the next month or two.
Currently, we are running a load test against VM servers and monitoring it with sitescope 8.7.
Now here is my question: is the CPU and Memory usage collected from the VM server through stiescope 8.7 using the VM server( guest) IP pertaining to the performance of the VMware host (physical machine) or the VM guest (VM intances)?
I know that the latest version of sitescope will provide performance counters for both the VMware host and the guests, but we are not ready to upgrade yet.
I'd like to know what the counters gathered via sitescope 8.7 mean before distributing the results?

How reliable are those counters? the reason I ask this is because i've been doing some reading about VMware and some of the tools used to monitor VMWare. I ran into some docs using Genilogix with Sitescope to get the real performance counters.
Basically, the docs indirectly stated that any sitescope version below 10 will not prperly monitor VMware without Genilogix. The other option is using SNMP. but that's a pain to implement. Are these guys just trying to upsell or sell a new product?
