This presentation will provide a whirlwind demonstration of Zenoss's features and then concentrate upon how to write your own ZenPack/Python module extension

Alan Milligan is the principal technical architect of Last Bastion Network Solutions in Australia. His background is in applications development and infrastructure in retail and investment banking. Alan is uniquely placed to present Zenoss because the open source architecture upon which it's based, Zope, has been the core of Last Bastion offerings for a decade.

The EDDIE Tool ( is a systemmonitoring, security and performance analysis agent written 100% inPython. Its key features are portability, powerful configuration andease of expansion. Monitoring rules are just like Python expressions.
