There have not been any new releases on HP Performance Insight for a long time, and I have heard that HP will/have stopped development on HP Performance Insight. Currently I cannot see that HP have any new product that fully can take over HP Performance Insight functionality.
Do anyone have any comments on this?

hmm, correct...never heard a word about PI for looong time... seems no other products also got the same functionaly, so other tools cant replace it as well... as we see the support ends after a two full year... so, we may need to wait only...

My name is Bryan Mitchell and I'm the current Product Manager for PI and other "Network Management Center / NMC" related products. .
Performance Insight is in a maintenance mode only. Which means, we will not have any additional enhancements going forward. We will maintain support and attempt to fix any critical issues that arise. This support will be in place for at least 18 months after EOL announcement, perhaps longer, being it will be an EOL product. The replacement products will be SHR or NNMi or SHR + NNMi. There will be some level of entitlement or promotional offer to existing customers, however, the details of which are still a work in progress. We expect to have something in place within this calendar year, however, this is not absolute and subject to change. The intent will be to protect, as much as possible, the customers investment in PI and move them forward to future state tools. Please feel free to contact me directly for additional comments or questions. firstname.lastname@example.org

Thanks for your answer. I will accept your answer as a solution to my question.
Some short comments from me:
* I do not yet have too good knowledge of SHR or NNMi Performance iSPIs, but I like the possibility in PI that enables me to custom-create collections (counters from SNMP MIB files or other data-sources) and then have the possibility to aggregate that data, and then create reports on it. I do not currently see that flexibility in SHR/NNMi.
* Then I'm an Oracle-guy, so I prefer oracle compared to Sybase IQ - Though I can see that Sybase IQ have good speed :)
* I would also like to vote for open DB access (read-access) to SHR/NPS DB (with DB entity diagrams) - so that people can create reports in their own existing web-portal.
Anyway - rumor says that SHR in next release will be able to take/use data from NNMi NPS (network performance server), I think that is a good way forward.

as the license structure with Oracle has gone absolutely crazy, I would like to see a combination of polling/report tool with any other database
