Zenoss-Plugins collect information about your workstation and report them on the command line.

Project Description
The zenoss plugins collect information about a computer’s CPU, memory,

disk, io, or process activity and reports it in name-value pair format. These name-value pairs can be graphed in the Zenoss web application.

The zenoss plugins are platform specific, and certain platforms offer plugins that are not implemented on other platforms. The following command can be used to determine the list of supported plugins on the detected platform:

# list the plugins that are defined on the detected platform $ –list-plugins

platform ‘darwin’ supports the following plugins: mem process disk

The –report-platform option can be used to print out the platform that has been detected. It is used as follows:

# report the detected platform $ –detect-platform


Some plugins require additional command line arguments in order to function. An example of this requirement is the disk monitor. The disk monitor plugin must be passed an argument that defines which filesystem should be reported on. Plugin arguments are provided immediately after the plugin name, as illustrated below:

# report the disk utilization for /var $ disk /var

DISK OK;|availBlocks=14251580 usedBlocks=63512052 totalBlocks=78019632

Other plugins may require keyword provided arguments in order to function. None of the plugins currently require it, but in the future they may honor keyword arguments as follows:

# report the disk utilization for /var $ disk /var –debug=10
