ZenPack plugins extend Resource Manager and allow you to monitor everything. ZenPacks are packaged, customizable, and extensible code that allows you to monitor a specific element, device, or system without using agents.

ZenPacks

"We use Zenoss to monitor everything...What took months before now takes hours or days." Allan Burnett, Director IT Ops
Resource Manager and ZenPack plugins make it easy to unify, enhance, and extend your monitoring, without the need to "rip and replace" the legacy systems you want to keep in place. Zenoss Service Dynamics ZenPack plugins use standard APIs and protocols, including SNMP, WMI, and SSH, that allow you to collect configuration information and monitor specific elements, devices, or systems without agents.

Zenoss ZenPack plugins are also highly extensible. There are hundreds of ZenPacks available for the broadest and most flexible coverage anywhere. You can customize existing ZenPacks or build your own with the ZenPack generator.
