Preparing devices for monitoring

Resource Manager uses collectors to gather data from a wide variety of devices, using the method that is best suited to each device type. For example, most network devices (switches, routers, and so on) support the Simple Network Management Protocol (SNMP). Windows devices support WinRM, which is a WSMAN-based mechanism for communicating with devices running Microsoft Windows.

For each device type, some end-device configuration may be required. For more information about preparing specific devices, see the ZenPack catalog.
