Zenoss Features



  • Zenoss detects and identifies devices connected to your network. Immediately following the initial discovery.
  • Zenoss builds a detailed model of devices, their configuration, network dependencies, and router. Which is then used to enable all other functions.
  • Dynamic Service Views gives you the ability to use these models to check device dependencies in real-time


  • Zenoss discovers the routes to every device and builds a network map. It uses this network map to discover relationships among routes and devices.
  • A simple network presence is a good, basic indicator of service availability.
  • Zenoss goes further allowing you to easily determine if web, mail, file transfer, and many other services are working.

 Availability Monitoring



Performance Monitoring

  • Zenoss collects and stores performance data by using several methods including SNMP, WMI, shell commands, and application APIs. 
  • It then analyzes the data for user-defined threshold violations and makes the data available through analytical charts and makes the data available through analytical charts and reports.
  • Zenoss provides data for both single value thresholds and predictive thresholds so that you are alerted on pressing issues that need immediate correction and evolving issues for pro-active measures.


  • Zenoss provides a single event console that brings together events from all managed devices with Zenoss-generated alerts.
  • Excellent notification and escalation management ensures that the right people become aware of critical problems, and automatic up-down correlation helps you focus on real issues, not momentary interruptions. Keeping up with a large number of events is straightforward in Zenoss. New events are visually distinct from past acknowledged events.
  • Acknowledging events is a powerful and simple way for your support team to collaborate. This allows you to respond to issues rapidly without stepping over each other’s efforts.

Security Head, IT

Fellowes Inc, USA



Altnix was an instrumental partner in two phases of our Security ISO needs. The first being a comprehensive developed Service/Ticketing system for our global offices. The second being that of an Asset Management tool that ties all assets into our Ticketing systems to close a gap that we had in that category. They are strong partners in working towards a viable solution for our needs



The Altnix team was very easy to work with and resolved our needs in a timely manner.  Working with Altnix, allowed us to focus on our core business while they handled the technical components to help streamline our business tools.  We have found a strategic partner in Altnix
