Greetings to all our new users this month. We hope everyone is enjoying the latest 2.5.1 release of Zenoss Core. Thanks to those of you who stopped by our booth at USENIX LISA, GOSCON and/or attended Zenoss Community Day Baltimore we enjoyed putting some faces to email addresses. We also hoped that you have noticed the up tick in community activity on the new Zenoss Community portal. There have been many new groups forming. For example, users focused on high performance computing, ZenPack development or Solaris monitoring are starting to collaborate and for those members with other interests there are many other groups available. Join a group or create your own today!
