Chapter 3. Preparing for monitoring

Zenoss Core uses standard management APIs to collect performance data, and therefore does not install proprietary agents on your infrastructure devices to collect monitoring data. However, Zenoss recommends that you review the information in this chapter to verify that the devices to you want to monitor are ready to respond to requests for data.

When your infrastructure is ready to monitor, the Zenoss Core Setup Wizard guides you through the process of discovering devices on your network and adding devices by category and type.
