Modeling devices using port scan

You can model IP services by doing a port scan, using the Nmap Security Scanner.

To model a device using a port scan:

  1. Select the device in the device list.
  2. In the left panel, select Modeler Plugins.
  3. Select the zenoss.nmap.ipServiceMap plugin in the list of Available plugins, and then use the right arrow control to move it to the list of Selected plugins.
  4. Click Save.
  5. Remodel the device by clicking the Model Device button.

Using the /Server/Scan device class to monitor with port scan

The /Server/Scan device class is an example configuration for modeling devices by using a port scan. You can use this device class as a reference for your own configuration; or, if you have a device that will use only a port scan, you can place it under this device class and remodel the device.
