Zenoss unveils new version of open source virtualisation monitoring platform

Offers monitoring capabilities for Xen Hypervisor

By CBR Staff Writer

Zenoss, corporate sponsor of the open source IT monitoring and management offering Zenoss Core, has unveiled version 2.5.2 of Zenoss Core under the GNU General Public License (V2).

Zenoss Core is an open source network monitoring and systems management project that delivers the functionality to manage the configuration, health and performance of networks, servers and applications through a single, integrated software package.

The new version of Zenoss Core offers monitoring capabilities for the Xen Hypervisor via the Zenoss Xen monitoring plug-in, or Xen Virtual Hosts ZenPack, the company said.

According to Zenoss, the Xen Virtual Hosts ZenPack discovers guests on Xen para-virtualised hosts and provides monitoring of performance and availability via SSH. The Xen hosts run on physical servers and the virtual guests are listed per host and linked back to any discovered instances on the network.

The company said that ZenPack allows administrators to find the associated hosts and guests and monitor their Xen virtual infrastructure along side their entire physical, virtual and cloud-based IT environment through a single interface.

Mark Hinkle, vice president of community, said: “We are committed to making sure Zenoss Core addresses the growing use of virtualisation and cloud-based technologies. By distributing Xen monitoring software as open source, we are enabling a large set of organisations who previously had no tools to manage their virtual assets to monitor virtual and physical IT infrastructure from one powerful, easy to use solution.”
