Beyond SNMP: Monitoring Cisco Converged Infrastructure
SNMP remains the dominant form of IT infrastructure monitoring including network equipment and Linux/Unix servers. While SNMP is in no danger of being retired anytime soon, the Cloud Era has brought with it new concepts and protocols that provide deep monitoring options via well-defined application programming interfaces (APIs).
Cisco has been an innovator within these converged infrastructure systems launching Cisco UCS, Nexus, and MDS family of products. In order to take advantage of these new and innovative platforms, IT Operations requires a monitoring platform that has the capability to utilize today's API or protocol-based monitoring and combine it with SNMP data collection.
Zenoss is Transforming IT Operations by providing an open and scalable monitoring platform that takes advantage of API and protocol monitoring while combining it with SNMP data collection to provide a unique model based and event driven approach to monitoring your converged infrastructure.
In this 45-minute session you will learn:
- Monitoring and Modeling of Cisco's Nexus, MDS, UCS, and Catalyst Switches running VSS
- Visualization of your IT infrastructure across multiple IT infrastructure domains
- The Benefits of the Zenoss Platform versus Traditional Monitoring Tools
