Cons
It would be nice to have remote access to the solution via a tablet. They also need remote control from a PC. Right now, to complete the technical support process, you have to have a tool to access the PC, and check the problems.I would like the solution to allow for more direct interaction with computers. I can open tickets and I can see their status, but I can't interact directly with the computers themselves.

I would like to see a more flexible mobile client, and better HA out of the box.The product delivers false positives during reporting because of flapping. Other reasonably priced alternatives may have better performance.I want Zabbix to improve the UX/UI. Zabbix doesn't use a JavaScript chart for images, and I want them to improve this.Correlation of events would be a wonderful addition.​I would like to better be able to monitor Oracle processes.​
