  • How To add multiple datapoints the Easy Way in Zenoss. (Mar 04, 2009, 23:03)
    Linux Dynasty: "Recently I had to input quite a few OID's into Zenoss. This meant I had to create a Data Source for each OID I wanted to monitor as well as one Data Point. Now I knew this was going to be a hassle!!! So I decided to write a custom Python script that uses pysnmp to essentially do a snmpwalk (nextCmd) on a Branch of OID's. This means that I can create one Data Source and Mutiple Data Points."

    Linux Journal: "Back in the summer of 2005, id Software released the Quake 3 engine to the public under the GPL license. For open-source enthusiasts, it was amazing news, but to the general public, it seemed like mostly marketing nonsense. Releasing the Quake 3 engine, unfortunately, wasn't the same as releasing the game, so the average gamer didn't gain anything--at least, not at first."
