Configuring Windows Devices to Provide Data Through SNMP

To monitor Microsoft Windows Server 2008 R2 systems, Zenoss Core uses SNMP v1/v2 or WinRM. (There is no SNMP v3 support.) For Windows 2012, there is no SNMP support.

By default, Windows may not have SNMP installed. To install SNMP on your particular version of Windows, refer to the Microsoft documentation.

After setting up and configuring the SNMP service, you must set the zSnmpCommunity string in Zenoss Core to match, to obtain SNMP data.

If you want processor and memory monitoring, install SNMP-Informant on the device. Go to http://www.snmp-informant.com and download SNMP for Windows.

To collect Windows event logs or log files from a Windows box using syslog, you can use the SyslogAgent Windows add-on, available from:
