IP-SLA Enumeration/Monitoring ZenPack

The ZenPack discovers, enumerates and allows monitoring of SLAs (obj. SLAS).


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 The following information may be out of date, and this page will eventually be removed.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


SLA (obj. ipSLAs) objects are children of the parent SLA appliance (obj. SLADevice). The ZenPack provides 3 templates HTTP, New_SLA (generic RTT) and VoIP under the device class /Devices/Network/IPSLA and a collection script, Collect_SLA.py. SLA's can be collected from devices under different class organizers by setting the class organizer or device zPythonClass to ZenPacks.ipSLA.SLADevice.SLADevice and adding the SLADevice modeler to the DataCollector list.
