Managing multi-realm networks

Resource Manager supports overlapping IP namespaces through the optional ZenPacks.zenoss.MultiRealmIP ZenPack.

With this ZenPack, Resource Manager can prefix a realm identifier to the IP addresses of a network, enabling unified monitoring. The primary use cases for multi-realm IP management are as follows:
  • A large company that manages multiple locations has defined the same network spaces across the locations, and as a result, created multiple overlapping IP spaces. Resource Manager needs a way to identify each separate IP space in the system.
  • Service providers that are responsible for monitoring multiple customers that have created independent networks and IP spaces that are unique to their location, but not unique to the service provider.
