"The big Zenoss news is that the latest version, 2.3, now supports VMware. What does it mean to support VMware? That is an excellent question, and one that marketing material does not generally cover well. Zenoss, thankfully, is very forthcoming with details.

* Provide both physical and virtual performance data in a single location
* Track the movement of virtual machines"
