The RANCID Integration ZenPack (Commercial) enables integration between the RANCID configuration management tool and the Zenoss platform.
- The Zenoss platform will build the router.db file for RANCID. This allows for the centralization of administration activities and reduces the duplication of effort normally required to maintain the two tools.
- Implementation of this feature is as easy as adding a cron job to execute $ZENHOME/bin/zenrancid to update the router.db file.
- The Zenoss platform will automatically run RANCID's rancid-run tool on a single device in response to a ciscoConfigManEvent SNMP trap being sent from the device to the Zenoss platform. Cisco devices will send this trap whenever their configuration is changed. This allows for real-time capturing of router configuration changes in your CVS repository.
