Linux Monitor ZenPack

This ZenPack monitors Linux systems by connecting to them using ssh.


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 The following information may be out of date, and this page will eventually be removed.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 part of Zenoss Core. Open Source users receive community support for this ZenPack via our online forums. Enterprise support for this ZenPack is provided to Zenoss customers with an active subscription.


This ZenPack includes functionality to model and monitor several types of device components for devices placed in the /Server/SSH/Linux device class by running commands and parsing the output. Parsing of command output is performed on the Zenoss server. The account used to monitor the device does not require root access or special privileges.


Check the following:

  • Correct class (/Server/SSH/Linux)
  • Valid login information (Note: Issues have been reported passing passwords that contain ! and ~)
  • sshd running on target
  • Correctly configured iptables/ip6tables
  • Targets reachable from Zenoss instance (should one have a highly segmented network)
