We want to update this ZenPack and need your help!

This ZenPack needs updating to run on the latest versions of Zenoss, and to update it, we need an SNMP walk of a live device. If you have this device in your datacenter, you can help! See Using snmpwalk for more information

IBM 3584 ZenPack

The main purpose of this ZenPack is to model IBM 3584 inventory information (serial numbers, models) and monitor status of the library via SNMP traps and status indicators.


This ZenPack is developed by the Zenoss user community and supported via our online forums. Zenoss, Inc. does not provide direct support for this ZenPack.


This ZenPack provides monitoring and modeling support for the IBM TS3500/3584 Tape Library. Many thanks to Egor Puzanov for his generous help in building and testing this ZenPack. Without his help, his examples and time this ZenPack would not have been possible. Also, thanks to Eric Edgar for his examples and help.

Device Class

Upon installing the ZenPack a new device class named /Devices/Storage/IBM/TapeLibrary is created. Add your tape library device to this class.

Modeled Information

The following information is modeled from the 3584: models the library model, serial number, product keys models information about the library frames including model, serial mumber, type, status models information about logical libaries including name, description, status models information about media access devices (tape drives) including name, type, model, firmware, serial number, cleaning status, status

To view the modeled information, click on the "Hardware" tab of the device.

Performance Graphs

Unfortunately, there is not a lot of performance data that is available via SNMP on the 3584. For this reason, the main purpose of this ZenPack is to model inventory information (serial numbers, models) and monitor status of the library via SNMP traps and status indicators. 3 very generic performance graphs are included with the ZenPack -- number of changer devices/logical libaries, number of tapes, number of tape drives.

Event Parsing

This ZenPack includes pre-defined event mappings for SNMP traps located in /Events/HW/Backup/Tape Library. Alerts will be generated and transformed when a SNMP trap is received from the tape library. You can use the "Send Test SNMP Trap" function on your 3584 to test this functionality.


This ZenPack includes all of the MIBs from IBM for the 3584.
