Platform Administration I

Zenoss Training

Course Description

This course is intended for administrators who are new to Zenoss — or new to Zenoss version 5 — and are responsible for maintaining the Zenoss platform. It teaches the skills required to perform basic administrative tasks in Control Center and Zenoss Resource Manager.

The course is delivered online by a live instructor, and includes hands-on lab exercises and live demonstrations of product functionality. Participants will have the opportunity to ask questions of the instructor and to interact with other class members. Each participant is provided with an individual Zenoss training instance (hosted by Zenoss) for the duration of the class.

For sessions held in US Central Time (CDT/CST), this course is held in a single full-day session with a one-hour break for lunch. For sessions held in GMT time (GMT/GMT+ 1:00), this course is held in two half-day sessions. See the schedule below for times and dates.
