Is the device available? How has the device performed over time? We answer these questions and more in our discussion about status and performance monitors. Status monitoring lets us know if the device or service is up or down while performance monitoring shows us the device's performance over time in the form of a graph.
In the previous chapters, we have built an inventory of the devices we wish to monitor and Zenoss Core is happily monitoring them according to the classes, zProperties, and modeler plugins we defined. In this chapter, we turn our attention to the components we want to monitor for each device. In Zenoss Core terminology, a component refers to some detail about the device, such as routes, services, processes, file systems, and network interfaces.
In this chapter, we will:
Configure collectors to gather data from each device
Monitor routes, window services, IP services, processes, file systems, and interfaces
Graph the performance of individual...
