What do you think of Zabbix?

Hi everyone, I want to share a story about cooking toasts and tell you how we were expanding the functionality of Zabbix by a coil of wire and an integrated circuit Open Source solutions. First things first. Imagine, you work in an organization (and it can be yours) where its business process is supported by one or more IT systems. There is a monitoring system. Then a little blurred vision, and it is not clear whether /the industrial system is free or Open Source. However, there aresituations when all the sensors aregreen, but the business process gives unexplained setbacks, showing a decrease of key indicators. Matter-of-factly, the situation is out of control and your intervention is required. It’s quite a common case. A systematical approach for solving this problem will...

What is most valuable?

The feature which I like the most would have to be the GUI. At first, I was put off, as I felt it was too complex or busy. Upon using it to setup devices, I found it was well laid out and has come a long way.

What do you think of Zabbix?

Valuable Features Stability Flexibility Expandability My favorite features are auto-discovery and LLD (low-level discovery) with Zabbix (and with some programming experience), you can monitor absolutely everything. Also, it is worth mentioning the good quality of documentation and great community support. • Improvements to My Organization Before we implemented Zabbix, we were blind. • Room for Improvement I'd like it if they'd have implemented some sort of SNMP auto-discovery. • Use of Solution Almost seven years (from version 1.8.2). • Stability Issues There were some issues, then I made an upgrade from version 1.8 to 2.4. I had to migrate existing MySQL DB (that is sitting under the hood) from one engine to another. • Scalability Issues Yes. But...

We value the auto-host discovery, template import, bulk import/export features. Newer versions also add nice features, such as multi-IP per host.

How has it helped my organization?

We operate an HPC cluster. On several occasions, the datacenter(s) counted above 1000 hosts. An easily scalable solution is most valued against other solutions which are simpler to operate and have a smoother learning curve, such as Nagios.... more»
