On restarting the service of sitescope the Sitescope UI shows the message "The monitor engine is currently starting up..." and stays in this state continuously.
Kindly suggest what might have been the cause. It is critical
If you want to understand what's going wrong you should check SiteScope log files (error.log specifically) to see the error messages that may give you a clue.
take sitescope back up and delete .dyn and .bak files from groups folder also remove .ssf and .dcf files in the persistency folder and restart the sitescope services and check
before doing this take back up of sitescope folder
What does .dyn , .bak, .ssh and .dcf stands for in sitescope also there importance.
Do NOT use the suggested steps to delte .ssf and .dcf files in the persistency folder !!!!
if you do so, you will delete ALL the sitescope monitors...
