Intro to Zenoss


Legacy monitoring written with broken, complicated, and archaic flat-text configuration files written in PERL, PHP, or JAVA got you down?  Tired of getting woken up at 3AM because one piece of network monitoring software just informed you that one of the other four pieces of network monitoring software crashed… again?  A couple hours later you find yourself in a 10AM meeting doing a post-mortem on why Accounts Payable is blaming your department for not knowing about an outage on hardware and software they never told you they were using…


Why can’t this be easier?  In 2006, we asked the same thing and released Zenoss Core to solve the problem.   Zenoss Core is award-winning Open Source IT monitoring software that offers visibility over the entire IT stack, from network devices, to converged infrastructure, public and private cloud, and applications. Features include automatic discovery, inventory via CMDB, availability monitoring, easy-to-read performance graphs, sophisticated eventing, tracking of VM’s between hypervisors, an easy-to-use web portal, and much more.   Zenoss Core is Free Software, released under the GNU General Public License version 2.  Since its inception, Zenoss has been downloaded over 4 million times and is used on every continent.



Come find out how Zenoss can make your life easier, automate the tedium of monitoring, and get you a full night’s sleep by replacing all those old franken-apps you were using to monitor your IT plant.
