Zabbix Review

Fast, lightweight, and easy to install

What is our primary use case?

I use Zabbix on my Raspberry Pi and it is set up to monitor our network. We are testing it at the moment to see how it responds to our network, which includes laptops and workstations.

I have not gone into great detail with the product, although I expect to be doing that within the next months.

What is most valuable?

It is not hard to integrate.

What needs improvement?

I am having difficulties connecting it to Grafana, as well as some of the other plugins like Kibana. 

For how long have I used the solution?

I have been using Zabbix for the past year.

What do I think about the stability of the solution?

The stability is okay, although, at this point, I'm only using it on a Raspberry Pi. I need to set it on a higher level server to see exactly how it responds on the network and how to deal with it. In this testing phase, it is stable, but when I'm ready to put it live into production then we will see how it reacts.

What do I think about the scalability of the solution?

I haven't tried to scale it, yet. I am the only one using it because I'm performing the testing.

How are customer service and technical support?

I have not been in contact with technical support.

How was the initial setup?

The basic setup is very easy. I installed it in a Raspberry Pi with a Linux version. It took perhaps 20 minutes to install, at the most.

What other advice do I have?

This is a product I can recommend to others.

Overall, I think that this is a great tool, although I need to spend more time with it to see exactly what the different features are, and how I can use it to implement my network better. There are a few glitches that need to be fixed, such as making the plugins easier to install.

I would rate this solution a nine out of ten.
