Chapter 17. ZenPacks

ZenPacks extend and modify the system to add new functionality. This can be as simple as adding new device classes or monitoring templates, or as complex as extending the data model and providing new collection daemons.

You can use ZenPacks to add:

  • Monitoring templates

  • Data sources

  • Graphs

  • Event classes

  • User commands

  • Reports

  • Model extensions

  • Product definitions

Simple ZenPacks can be created completely within the user interface. More complex ZenPacks require development of scripts or daemons, using Python or another programming language.

ZenPacks can be distributed for installation on other Resource Manager systems.
