This week Zenoss announced ZenPack, a new way to monitor your Open Stack servers. It is a great way to keep track of things in your cloud and is simple to use and quick to install. It is free and open source and can be used to look at real-time server inventories, performance and health stats, as well as what apps you have deployed to the cloud.

Zenoss has made a name for its monitoring tools and we have covered them in the past here. You can download the code here from Github and watch a video screencast quick tutorial here showing you how to monitor a server on Rackspace as an example.
