Zenoss installation & monitoring a Linux server with SNMP

Video ready, click here to close ×




  • The fact that you have to TELL zenoss if the device is a server or a printer, proves how immature this software is. Not to mention how it manages to ignore root directives, like starting itself, and demands you issue them instead as the Zenoss user is a hassle.

  • Using ZenOss in my labs have been great.. Thanks

  • @bowendenning that sounds like a great idea. Im going to send ya an e-mail if you don't mind.

  • @bowendenning I've used and like Nagios myself. Plus from what I have read so far, Zenoss uses a lot more resources compaired to Nagios. Do you know if Nagios can be setup in the same way with different nagios installations reporting back to a master one?

  • @bowendenning hmm. I basically want to set some type of monitoring up where it would notify me if the server looses connection to the internet, thus taking everyone on the network offline. Have you any experience with installing Zenoss as a virtual machine on ESXi 4.0? Thanks for getting back to me!

  • can Zenoss only monitor hosts inside the local network? I would love to find something that can monitor servers accross different networks.

  • Hey thats fine. Would be really great if you help us in understanding how we could use the APIs.

  • Thanks for sharing the video, I am very new to zenoss and python. Needed help in extracting all device/Hardware/software details from zenoss. for eg. Trying to understand this…

    for d in dmd.Devices.getSubDevices():
    print d.manageIp

    I know using that zendmd will give me all IP details but was trying to understand the structure of "dmd.Devices.getSubDevices()" but am not able to go any further.. could you please help me understand…
