FreeRADIUS ZenPack

Provides monitoring and graphing for FreeRADIUS statistics.


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 The following information may be out of date, and this page will eventually be removed.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.


Version 1.0.0- Download
Summary of changes: First release
Released on 2013/10/30
Compatible with Zenoss Core 4.2.x, Zenoss Resource Manager 4.2.x


Provides monitoring and graphing for FreeRADIUS statistics. Currently total Access, Authentication and Accounting metrics are graphed, as well as the rate per 5 minute polling interval for each.

You will want to edit the data source to reflect your environment. Change "radclient localhost:18120 status adminsecret" to the port and administrator secret for your FreeRADIUS status server. See http://wiki.freeradius.org/config/Status for more information.

A new Monitoring Template named "FreeRADIUS" will be created.

Requires SSH credentials setup to run the commands.
