What do you think of Zabbix?

Valuable Features: Scalability, everything can be monitored. • Room for Improvement: Reporting is weak, if you want something better you must write your own SQL scripts/ • Use of Solution: 3 years. • Stability Issues: Sometimes. • Scalability Issues: Yes, web-page Zabbix server, database can be separate machine. • Customer Service and Technical Support: Never used the technical support. • Previous Solutions: Yes, previously used Cacti or Nagios but Zabbix has node communication. • Initial Setup: Straightforward, if you understand basic things about databases or web services, it's easy. • Other Advice: All data is stored in the database. If you have more than 200 hosts you need a fast disk or good tuning of the OS/database.
