Configure and Use a Network Monitoring System with New Book from Packt
Packt is pleased to announce a new book on the Zenoss, the Open Source network monitoring system. Written by Michael Badger, Zenoss Core Network and System Monitoring will teach users to configure Zenoss Core via an easy to use web interface.
Zenoss is an enterprise network and systems management application written in Python/Zope that provides an integrated product for monitoring availability, performance, events and configuration across layers and across platforms. Zenoss provides an AJAX-enabled web interface that allows system administrators to monitor availability, inventory/configuration, performance, and events.
This book will teach users to adapt and work with Zenoss to monitor Systems and Networks. System administrators, network engineers, and security analysts will learn how to keep a track of network traffic. Through this book users will learn to analyze network security audits, debug network configurations, and usage patterns which all require network traffic monitoring.
Users will also learn to administer Zenoss Core and perform backups and updates; extend Zenoss Core with ZenPacks, Nagios plugins, and command line utilities and build an inventory of their network using Zenoss Core. Apart from individual users, this book also helps small and large organizations to collect data, monitor, and report on their IT assets.
The book is out now and is available from Packt. For more information, please visit http://www.packtpub.com/zenoss-core-network-and-system-monitoring/book

With all the industry talk about the benefits of Linux on Power and all the performance advantages offered by its open architecture, you may be considering a move in that direction. If you are thinking about analytics, big data and cloud computing, you would be right to evaluate Power. The idea of using commodity x86 hardware and replacing it every three years is an outdated cost model. It doesn’t consider the total cost of ownership, and it doesn’t consider the advantage of real processing power, high-availability and multithreading like a demon.
This ebook takes a look at some of the practical applications of the Linux on Power platform and ways you might bring all the performance power of this open architecture to bear for your organization. There are no smoke and mirrors here—just hard, cold, empirical evidence provided by independent sources. I also consider some innovative ways Linux on Power will be used in the future.Get the Guide
