This ZenPack is part of Zenoss Core. Open Source users receive community support for this ZenPack via our online forums. Enterprise support for this ZenPack is provided to Zenoss customers with an active subscription.

This ZenPack can be used alone, or with one of the other VMware ZenPacks. When used alone, a basic modeler creates virtual machines under the /Devices/Server/Virtual Hosts/EsxTop device class for any host device that is added and modeled. Otherwise, performance data can be collected for the ESX hosts modeled by the other ZenPacks.
