Zenoss is a powerful Open Source solution to monitoring your IT infrastructure. Company's large and small depend on the availability and performance of their IT networks. Zenoss has solutions that scale from a small home office network with hosted services to a firm with international locations across a widespread VPN network.
The core function of Zenoss is to keep a vigilant watch over your network and alert you immediately of any issues. Zenoss auto-discovers your devices using SNMP to get rich details on how your servers, workstations, printers and other equipment should be performing. When a device suffers an outage or goes outside of acceptable ranges of performance such as high CPU load or a hard disk nearing capacity, Zenoss can trigger an alert via Growl, SMS or email to let you know of the issue.
Because it uses SNMP, Zenoss can collect almost any information you require on your critical business services. This becomes more important today as company's implement Unified Communications solutions that require the smooth flow of data between services for voice, fax, email, instant messaging, customer relationship management and custom applications.
Zenoss provides network map views showing how devices are connected and helping you to better understand your network. In addition, Zenoss provides a Google Maps mash-up of your multi-location network along with status alerts to quickly see where in the world your issues are.
An iPhone web application is available to see Zenoss alerts quickly and efficiently via your iPhone.
