Zenoss Core is flexible enough to work from a command line, but most of our work will take place via a web interface, which is based on the Zope application server framework.
Zope is a popular, extensible application server written in Python. It features a built-in web server, transactional object database, and HTML templates. Python is the basis for Zope; it's also the basis for Zenoss Core.
Through the web interface, we provide input with both the data and collection layers to accomplish tasks related to the following areas:
Navigation and organization
Availability and performance monitors
Settings and administration
