This week’s techmail is System monitoring with Zenoss takes complexity out of configuration (not quite sure why my original title got changed, as this one doesn’t make much sense to me, but ok…). Anyways, I’ve been a long-time fan of Nagios, still use it, but I’m seriously considering replacing it with Zenoss. I need to spend a bit more time fiddling with it, but (as the techmail indicates) it’s quite promising and looks very feature rich. And not nearly as complicated to configure as Nagios. Always boils down to time though… need to find some time to dedicate to figuring Zenoss out more to make it as useful to me as Nagios currently is, and to make it a replacement tool.
