Zabbix Review

Every new asset placed in the environment can be automatically detected


What is our primary use case?

  • Monitor network assets
  • Data links
  • Disk space
  • Physical servers
  • More than 600 virtual machines
  • Websites
  • Logins into automated systems

How has it helped my organization?

  • Assertive monitoring
  • Customized messages
  • Configurable screens
  • Division by teams
  • Customizable alerts
  • Automated call opening
  • Mobile connections

What is most valuable?

The discovery functionality. Every new asset placed in the environment can be automatically detected, predicting human failures.

What needs improvement?

The product is already great. Wanting something more could take the focus off the product. However, correlation of events would be a wonderful addition.

For how long have I used the solution?

More than five years.

What do I think about the stability of the solution?

No issues.

What do I think about the scalability of the solution?

There are no scalability issues. The components scale.

How is customer service and technical support?

We have not had any events that the team has not resolved.

The system has good documentation and a community full of talent. 

Which solutions did we use previously?

I have already used Nagios. After using Zabbix, I did not try new tools. I adapted and believe it would be difficult to convert all the rules to another system.

How was the initial setup?

It is easy to deploy. The installation process is well-documented.

What about the implementation team?

The implementation was carried out by an internal team. We acquired knowledge by reading manuals.

What's my experience with pricing, setup cost, and licensing?

It is worth every cent to pay or even study to do your own installation.

Which other solutions did I evaluate?

I had a very good references to Zabbix, but I did have a look at Pandora FMS and Nagios.

What other advice do I have?

I believe in the system's potential.

Disclosure: I am a real user, and this review is based on my own experience and opinions.
