In this screencast I show you how to download and install the Zenoss server software, how to configure an Ubuntu Linux server to run SNMP and then how to add that SNMP enabled server to Zenoss for monitoring.
Hopefully someone with find this helpful to get them up and running quickly with Zenoss. Just as a precautionary note, I would probably advise against using SNMP (and certainly with my config file) if you’re monitoring servers over the internet, but on a secured LAN it should be fine.
Below is my snmpd.conf configuration file that I use which is pretty much straight out of the Zenoss manual.
