'Introduction to Zenoss' Workshop  - Presented by:  Jane Curry

27th January 2010 - London

The purpose of this workshop is to get delegates started with Zenoss. 

The product will be installed in a VMware environment and the main functions 
of Zenoss will be explored through a series of practical exercises, using a 
combination of real and virtual devices. 

Zenoss can discover specific devices, any devices on a given network, and 
ranges of devices. They can be classified into different types (such as 
Router, Linux Server); they can also be displayed on a network map.
Availability: Availability polling can use ping, SNMP, WMI and ssh commands. 
In addition, TCP/UDP ports can be checked, Windows and Unix/Linux processes 
can be monitored along with Windows services.

The Zenoss Event Console provides several views into the events database, 
filtered by device, event type or configured for a particular user. Events 
can be Acknowledged or Cleared and automation can be setup to alert via email 
or pager. Event actions can also be created.

Performance and reporting: 
Zenoss provides out-of-the-box collection of basic performance data which can 
be further customised. Standard performance graphs can be enhanced and 
customised reports can be created to augment those provided by Zenoss. 

The workshop aims for at least 80% hands-on time.

No previous knowledge of Zenoss is assumed. By the end of the workshop, 
participants should have a working Zenoss installation with basic 
customisation and an appreciation of how to further customise for their own
