    Default Monitoring Zimbra with Zenoss

    Hi everybody,

    I'm interested in monitoring Zimbra with Zenoss. I am monitoring the linux host for CPU usage/disk/network traffic etc but I would also be interested in more Zimbra information.

    Is there a way to get information out of zimbra from the cli? And with information I mean things like:

    * number of accounts\
    * number of send messages
    * number of received messages
    * number of deferred/active/corrupt/etc messages
    * etc

    I would very much appreciate your help.

    Best regards,

    Tijmen

    Welcome to the forums

    ZCS stores a lot of details within a mysql instance so you could potentially query that ... Alternatively a perl script which queries the tables and sends SNMP traps would also achieve the result.
    Code:
    su - zimbra
    logmysql
    use zimbra_logger;
    mysql> show tables;

    on a related note im interested in monitoring with Zenoss but i just want the basics for now. Where would i set the SNMP community and such? I notice Zimbra has its own snmp running, should i change that or install another snmp deamon?

    Are you sure it is running its own SNMP daemon ? I can not see one running.

    If you can get it working, I'd be interested as well. I am looking at Zenoss to replace our older Nagio system which bit the dust a month back.

    I know this thread is right on the line of starting to get stale, but ..... we would really like this functionality as well, so I just thought I'd ping everyone & see what was the latest. (I also get to subscribe to the thread)

    Thanks everyone !
    Thanks very much.

    Peace. Love. Linux.

    Like gentux, I am able to monitor the basics, using the LinuxSSH plugin. It would be nice to have Zimbra specific information as well. I want to see everything (ALL of my servers and apps) in a single pane of glass. Is there any work being done on a Zenoss plugin for Zimbra?
