Free and Open Introduction to Zenoss by Jane Curry – London 21/05/10

Zenoss  provides comprehensive Open Source network and systems management and 
uses a Commercial Open Source business model.

Jane Curry has been working with Zenoss for two years after a long
background with IBM Tivoli products. She was made a Zenoss Master by
Zenoss Inc. in February 2009. She will introduce Zenoss to the audience
through a combination of presentation and demos.

This Open Source Specialist Group (OSSG) event is free and open
to all and will be held at the BCS Central London Offices, First Floor,
The Davidson Building, 5 Southampton Street, London WC2E 7HA 
on Friday 21st May 2010, from 1800 to 2030.

Free buffet and refreshments available on the night.

Jane’s presentation intends to show that with Zenoss you can monitor all your 
servers and network devices:

* Know when a critical device goes down

* Alert operations staff when urgent action is needed

* Know how much traffic is flowing on critical network links

* Know how hard your servers are working

* Watch load trends and plan for the future

* Verify SLA compliance

Zenoss has a web interface so you can use it from anywhere. It uses
industry-standard protocols like SNMP, ssh and WMI so it can monitor
almost anything – Windows, Linux, Cisco, HP and more. There is an
extension mechanism so it can adapt to new requirements.
The core functionality is available free of charge so you can get
started with no risk. A fully-supported commercial version is available
for Enterprise deployments. Zenoss is an excellent replacement for
products like IBM NetView, HP Openview, and Nagios.
