We asked business professionals to review the solutions they use. Here are some excerpts of what they said:
"It supports numerous platforms."
"The solution is open-source, easy to manage, and user-friendly making it easy for anyone to use."
"The implementation process is very straightforward."
"Zabbix is both stable and scalable."
"The solution's design has recently changed and it is visually pleasing with more color, for example, there is blue, black, and white."
"It is a great product. The SNMP protocol tracking feature is good. I really like how it tracks SNMP. The alerts are also great."
"There are lots of great features and functionality within the solution."
"The flexibility of this solution is amazing."
"The most valuable feature is service assurance."
"Old user interface and dashboards could be improved."
"Implementation is always tailored to the customer and the kind of information we need from the client to carry it out can make them very uncomfortable. Sometimes the clients are not ready to share it."
"The documentation gets a bit messy between versions and is not too detailed, which is a bit painful for first-timers, especially when they run into issues."
"When we have a problem, we have to do a lot of research to solve it."
"The graphical user interface could be customized a little bit more, and also the dashboard could be more friendly."
"The stability could be better."
"If Zabbix had a better dashboard then it would be nice."
"When using this solution in enterprise monitoring, you are able to see that there are some issues with equipment that could be causing a problem. Sometimes you want to make a root command that you do not want to be executed automatically. What we have tried to do is open an SSH session directly from the solution's interface but it is not possible."
"Its UI needs to be improved a little bit more so that an end-user is also able to handle it. I can handle it, but others should also be able to handle it in a better way. It becomes complex when we are growing and need to add proxies. We need more scalability features and documentation for different use cases. A lot of articles are available, but they need to be in proper documentation. For example, when you have thousands of servers that have to be monitored in different regions of the world, there should be some kind of documentation to describe how you can create proxies and add them. Sometimes, when you are using the database, it can get overloaded. When the network is growing, the number of transactions becomes very high, and the database gets overloaded. There should be information about how to reduce the load on the MySQL database, which is what Zabbix is using. The market is growing a lot, and it should be enhanced for a lot more things. We are currently bringing enhancements at our end for different use cases. For example, when dockerization is going on, how can we check the logs inside the Dockers. We should also be able to monitor and check the number of logins and add features such as SSO login and two-factor authentication as a protocol. These are the security features and concerns that we have to deal with. Currently, we are developing modules to add features to Zabbix, but they should also work on these features."
"This is an open-source solution that can be used free of charge."
"It is reasonable."
"This solution is completely open-source, so it is quite affordable."
"There is a license required for this solution and we pay annually for our license."
"It's an open-source solution that can be used free of charge."
"The solution is free to use but they offer support as a paid service. If you can go read the manuals and do the fine-tuning based on your needs, you do not need to pay anything and you will have a full solution."
"Zabbix is open-source so if one wishes to implement it in-house, they must have qualified professionals to set up and optimize databases, Linux/Unix OS, PHP, Apache, and depending on what is monitored, a full-stack network and systems administrator may be needed."
"My manager is very happy because it doesn't cost anything."
