Customizing Control Center monitoring

Customize monitoring of Control Center health and performance to fit your environment.
  1. Add and model one or more Control Center instances as devices. For each device, specify the device class /ControlCenter, and set configuration properties that have prefix zControlCenter.
    For more information, see the following topics:
  2. To determine base-level performance for the Control Center instance, study component graphs after a week, a month, and so on. If a metric for a component captures data that indicates a potential problem, take the following actions:
  3. To the template for the affected component, add thresholds for the data point.
    • Create a threshold to send a warning level event that you can investigate.
    • Create another threshold to send an error level event to indicate a more serious problem.
  4. Create events with event class /App/Zenoss for the threshold violations.
  5. As you collect more data, make adjustments to thresholds and events as needed.
The following figure shows events for components of the default Control Center device.
