Zenoss announced the availability of Zenoss Core 4, powerful open source IT management solution.

Core 4's event processing system has been overhauled with performance and extensibility in mind, making it able to process up to 100 million events per day.

In addition, industry-standard AMQP middleware can be used to interact with all stages of the event pipeline. With Core 4, Zenoss can now perform remote monitoring of Windows systems with no third-party agents.

Along with major product enhancements, Core 4 now enables developers to automatically build, test and distribute ZenPacks based on a user’s platform and version. This platform aims to empower developers and users alike by allowing for enhanced collaboration, innovation and quality of custom ZenPacks.

“Core 4 is a major achievement for both the community and Zenoss as it introduces significant architectural and feature enhancements that cement its position as the most powerful open source monitoring solution available today,” said Floyd Strimling, Technical Evangelist and VP of Marketing & Community at Zenoss. “With the support of our more than 100,000 community members, Zenoss Core will continue to push the technology envelope, provide extensions via our ZenPack framework, and will further drive our leadership within open source IT management.”

With the release of Core 4, Zenoss continues to extend support for DevOps by releasing enhanced APIs and a new jobs system into the open source solution.

Also, Zenoss has improved the usability and performance of the web based user interface.

Zenoss went through a very intensive bug and testing phase to provide a solid product to the community members. The team also worked with community members to discuss key updates for the product. Through this collaboration, new capabilities of Core 4 include:

- An Advanced Message Queuing Protocol (AMQP) message bus

- New jobs system for asynchronous tasks

- New high performance event management system

- Windows Management Instrumentation support

- Ext JS 4 JavaScript Framework support

- Advanced monitoring for legacy and cloud platforms with continued support for OpenStack and CloudStack

- Support for RelStorage, SNMPv3 trap and IPv6 Monitoring

- Enhanced ZenPing suppression

- Rest Eventing API

- New message queue (RabbitMQ) backed multi-stage event pipeline to supplement with full text indexing engine (Lucene)
