Monitoring an HTTP API
This tutorial will describe an efficient approach to monitoring data via
a HTTP API. We’ll start by using
zenpack.yaml to extend the Zenoss
object model. Then we’ll use a Python modeler plugin to fill out the
object model. Then we’ll use PythonCollector to monitor for events,
datapoints and even to update the model.
For purposes of this guide we’ll be building a ZenPack that monitors the weather using the National Weather Service's weather API.
