Integrating Opengear console servers into Zenoss monitoring
Zenoss Enterprise is a next generation, Unlegacy IT management product that improves the monitoring of service to business applications and supporting infrastructure in the dynamic datacenter. Opengear has partnered with Zenoss to extend monitoring capability to previously undetected devices and integrate a vital layer of Out-Of-Band access methods to remote sites.
Opengear has partnered with Zenoss to extend the monitoring capability to previously undetected devices and include a vital layer of Out-Of-Band access to remote sites. Opengear console servers provide connectivity to devices not currently network or SNMP enabled. We deliver remote site access to serial console ports, digital I/O devices, environmental sensors and TCP/UDP hosts.
Key Benefits: Enabling Zenoss customers to actively monitor all the network devices, power equipment, and environmental conditions at their remote sites Monitoring previously undetected devices: RS232, RS422, RS485, USB, digital I/O Providing point-n-click access to the remote site from within Zenoss screens Ensuring high availability with integrated Out-Of-Band access Expand monitoring to new markets: Grid, Utility, Pipeline, Medical, Military, Industrial and more
Extend polling to simple devices at remote sites Our console servers allow for easy integration by handling all of the connectivity and conversion issues at the remote site and present the status and alerts over IP via SNMP. For example, our design allows UPS and PDU systems that do not have SNMP capability to be actively monitored and managed via serial console. Our devices are vendor agnostic which allows previously un-monitored UPS and PDU systems to be easily integrated into Zenoss. You can now trigger alerts on battery, load, input/output on UPS systems and harness switched and metered PDU's via serial interface.
Opengear enables Zenoss customers to extend monitoring to new markets such as: Smart Grid Solar Panel Monitoring Medical Cellular to wireless locations Gaming Machines Utilities And much more…
Integrate point-n-click access into Zenoss Monitoring Opengear's console servers and Zenoss communicate using Simple Network Management Protocol (SNMP), management information bases (MIB), and traps (asynchronous alerts). This gives customers the capability to quickly respond to events at the edge, ensuring optimal reliability and performance. Opengear console servers provide encrypted authenticated access that meets the most demanding high security applications. In addition, our console servers provide secure Out-Of-Band access using modems and cellular network connections. Opengear console servers can be accessed quickly from within the Zenoss UI by simply clicking the embedded Opengear logo for the associated downstream console server.
Easy Integration Setup takes only minutes and offers a customized selection to display for each remote console server.
Installation of Opengear ZenPacks into Zenoss To monitor your console server and its managed devices you will need to import the Opengear ZenPack into your Zenoss.
