Preparing for monitoring

Resource Manager uses standard management APIs to collect performance data, and therefore does not install proprietary agents on your infrastructure devices to collect monitoring data. However, Zenoss recommends that you review the information in this section to verify that the devices to you want to monitor are ready to respond to requests for data.

This section describes how to prepare the most common IT infrastructure. If the infrastructure you want to monitor is not described here, please refer to the corresponding ZenPack documentation in the ZenPack catalog.

When your infrastructure is ready to monitor, the Resource Manager Setup Wizard guides you through the process of discovering devices on your network and adding devices by category and type.
