Cons
There's room for improvement in the visibility, and in the ability to extract information. Stuff like this should be more simple.They need more documentation for the plugins.I would like to see more customization in the network map because it is a bit tricky to use it.I would like a much easier GUI so that I can delete events and logs, which will free up a lot of space.I would like to see support for notification via SMS.The interface could be more user-friendly.

The documentation could be improved.For us, the initial setup was complexThe only improvement I would suggest, revolves around its AI and ML capabilities.If Zabbix had a better dashboard then it would be nice.I would like to see a more flexible mobile client, and better HA out of the box.The server monitoring could be better.The main problem with Zabbix is that you have to spend time writing templates for all of the products that you have.The product delivers false positives during reporting because of flapping. Other reasonably priced alternatives may have better performance.
