Getting Help

Zenoss is Open Source Software, so like other open source software there's plenty of ways to get help.

Guidelines
ESR's Smart Questions Guide, if followed, will help you provide all the information that we need to answer your question without a lot of back-and-forth. If you need an answer quickly, please follow the guide.
IRC Channel
#zenoss on irc.freenode.net. Currently we have slightly over 100 users, answers occasionally take some time but someone is usually awake if the sun is up over the US or Europe.
Forums
Our forums are available both to search if you're having an issue, or to ask questions and post issues to. There's also a Zenoss-Announce group with announcements and information about Zenoss events and news.
I found a bug
Zenoss uses JIRA to track bugs. Create an account and file a bug, or browse reported bugs. Bug FAQ
I want to follow you on Twitter
Sure, Remember, Twitter isn't a support forum, so we can't answer questions there! If you still want to follow us, we're @Zenoss on Twitter.
What about documentation?
You're already here, welcome! If you're getting started, you might specifically look at how to Add a Device, part of our new tutorial-style User Guide that we are creating on the wiki. We also have our PDF documentation available.
