Monitoring Control Center

Resource Manager provides capabilities to monitor and manage the health and performance of Control Center resources.

The installation or upgrade process creates and configures the /ControlCenter device class for monitoring the local Control Center instance. You can add and monitor local and remote instances. Control Center must be running and listening on the target device's HTTPS port. To monitor a remote instance, you must provide the user name and password for that instance.

The modeler plugin is zenoss.ControlCenter. Modeling automatically discovers components of the /ControlCenter device. During normal remodeling intervals, the system updates component attributes. The system automatically generates data source types and monitoring templates for the /ControlCenter devices and device components.

Monitored Control Center resources include pools, hosts, services, running services, thin pools, and volumes. Graphs show memory usage, CPU usage, and page faults. Resource Manager generates events when a Control Center service fails or generates an error.

Pre-defined thresholds warn you and then issue an error when volume or thin pool space is low and extremely low. You can add custom events and thresholds, and edit shipped thresholds for components that have them.
The following figure shows the overview page for the default Control Center device.
