Zenoss Core monitors a variety of sources for signs of trouble, including syslogs, availability and performance monitors, SNMP traps, Windows event logs, and custom scripts. Core features of the event management system include:
Automatic event prioritization
Up/down event correlation
The event system mitigates duplicate events and auto-clears events when the status of the event changes from down to up. Zenoss Core can also collect events from custom scripts and external applications.
In response to events, Zenoss Core can send e-mail or pager alerts, run a script, or do nothing. We configure how Zenoss Core responds to an event by defining alerting rules. Alerting rules are defined on a per user or user-group basis.
