Modeling devices

To model devices, the system can use

  • SSH
  • WinRM
  • SNMP (legacy option)

The modeling method that you select depends on your environment and the types of devices that 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 replaced ZenDS (MySQL) in version 5.x and later and stores the object database (ZODB).
