Step-By-Step Guide for Configuring Zenoss to Work with Websensor
1. Use Zenoss to install the Websensor ZenPack. The command to install a ZenPack from the command line is:

  zenpack run --install filename

  This unzips the ZenPack file into $ZENHOME/Products/ and installs the ZenPack in Zenoss.

2. Compile the Nagios plugin.

     gcc check_em01.c -o check_em01

3. Copy the script to Zenoss plugins directory. The default is /usr/local/zenoss/libexec
but may vary according to your installation.

4. You are now ready to use the Websensor ZenPack. Simply add a new device and select /Websensor as the device class path. Discovery Protocol set to none. HW Manufacturer set to Esensors. HW Product set to EM01B Websensor.

5. You may test your setup by running a test zencommand at the command line.

  zencommand run -d -v10

Add thresholds to the data sources to generate warning/critical events.
Edit the Websensor Template by going to Devices -> Websensor -> Templates -> Websensor Template.

7. You can also add graphs if you wish. Use any of the Data Source as your Graph Points
