Event Forwarder ZenPack

This ZenPack adds new event notification actions that are used by the zenactiond daemon for forwarding events.


The ZenPack Catalog has moved to its new home at https://www.zenoss.com/product/zenpacks as of January 17, 2017. The following information may be out of date, and this page will eventually be removed.


This ZenPack is developed by the Zenoss user community and supported via our online forums. Zenoss, Inc. does not provide direct support for this ZenPack.


The Event Forwarder action forwards events to the eventForwarder rabbit queue. Destination extension packs, such as ZenPacks.SteelHouseLabs.SplunkForwarder and ZenPacks.SteelHouseLabs.ZenossForwarder, can then consume this queue and process events to their appropriate destination.

See github README for more info.
