Chapter 4. Modeling Devices

To model devices, the system can use:

  • SSH

  • WinRM

  • SNMP (legacy option)

The modeling method you select depends on your environment, and on the types of devices you want to model and monitor.

By default the system remodels each known device every 720 minutes (12 hours).

The following figure shows how the zenmodeler daemon fits into the modeling devices portion of the Resource Manager architecture. Note that MariaDB has replaced ZenDS (MySQL) in version 5 and stores the object database (ZODB).
