"I recently wrote about Nagios, an enterprise-worthy network monitor. For many, Nagios is all they need: It's powerful, flexible, and very reliable. However, for system administrators working with larger networks and who need auto-detection of devices, Zenoss shines as a serious enterprise-ready solution for any size network.

"Of course this power comes at a cost. The cost? Complexity of installation. Whereas Nagios is incredibly simple to get up and running, Zenoss is not. In this article, I will show you how to install Zenoss so you can get it ready to be your one and only network monitoring tool. I will be demonstrating the installation on a Ubuntu 10.04 machine. You can easily modify the process to fit your distribution."
