This ZenPack relies on SNMP to extract performance metrics as well as discovering pools and datasets.Therefore, the correct community has to be set. Apart from SNMP-based monitoring, FreeNAS/TrueNAS events are also translated to Zenoss events. Dismissing them on the web interface clears them on Zenoss. Syslog monitoring can also be enabled on the web interface regardless of this ZenPack's installation.


Before installing the ZenPack, be sure to install PyYAML as the Zenoss user:

The ZenPack provides a device class named TrueNAS nested under /Server/Linux. FreeNAS/TrueNAS devices should be added to that class, configured then modelled. Below a list of zProperties added by the ZenPack.
