5. Custom Monitoring Templates

Chapter 5. Custom Monitoring Templates

In the preceding chapters, we've seen how to set up our devices to be monitored by defining classes, modeler plugins, and components. We now turn our attention to one of the most flexible features within Zenoss Core: monitoring templates.

Templates are a graphical frontend to RRDtool. They collect performance data from our devices and add that data into Zenoss Core's data model so we can monitor and graphically display it.

In this chapter we will:

  • Monitor using SNMP data sources, including MIBs and OIDs
  • Monitor using a command data source (Nagios and Cacti plugins)
  • Bind monitoring templates to device classes

This chapter roughly divides into two halves. In the first half, we tweak an existing template and add a new SNMP data source and OID.
