Get Devices from Zenoss with ZenDMD

A simple example:

#!/usr/bin/env python

import Globals
from Products.ZenUtils.ZenScriptBase import ZenScriptBase
DMD = ZenScriptBase(connect=True).dmd

Devices = DMD.Devices.getSubDevicesGen()

Filter by Device Class

If you only want to select the devices from a specific class, for example the class /Servers/Linux, you could do:

for Device in DMD.Devices.getOrganizer('/Servers/Linux').getSubDevices():
    print Device.title, Device.manageIp

Otherwise, if you want to separate that specific class name out of a list of all the devices, you could do:

for Device in DMD.Devices.getSubDevices():
    if Device.getDeviceClassName().startswith('/Server/Linux'):
        print Device.title, Device.manageIp

Get Devices by Group

If you only want to select the devices from a specific group, for example the group /Customers/VIP/Acme you could do:

for Device in DMD.Groups.Customers.VIP.Acme.getSubDevices():
    print Device.title, Device.manageIp

If your group contains whitespace, for exampe /Customers/VIP/Acme Anvils, then you can use a different approach:

for Device in getattr(DMD.Groups.Customers.VIP, 'Acme Anvils').getSubDevices():
    print Device.title, Device.manageIp

Find Specific Device

This example is from the zendmd Python interpreter, run as user zenoss:

>>> print Device.title
