Zabbix Valuable Features

The most usable Zabbix feature was monitoring the free access amount on the hard disk on one of our servers. We had a problem with an unknown resource that created information on our hard disk. We could get the statistics of the free access to our hard disk on the server. We could thus find predators and eliminate them. View full review »

* Multi-level infrastructure maps. You can set up highly customizable maps of your infrastructure, including each component status, maps which can contain submaps, and if something’s wrong at the submap level - the submap will be shown with problems. * Agent and agentless monitoring. Installing an agent is the easiest way, but SSH, SNMP, Impi, custom scripting and other protocols are supported. * Templates. There are a broad set of templates that define monitoring items for common OS and applications, you can build your own or use one developed by the community. * An API for you to create, modify, and delete most things programmatically, including items, triggers, charts, etc. View full review »

The most valuable features are its performance (scalability) in monitoring, the monitoring centric (agent compatibility with the large vendors OS, SNMP, IPMI, JMX), VMware monitoring, web monitoring, capacity planning and the proxifying monitoring. View full review »

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. View full review »

Zabbix is fully open-source - no paid features/versions, so you get everything for free. Great, totally free product: * It is very customizable and flexible - you can monitor almost everything. * It has many great options - like auto discovery/registration, many types of alerting and templates provided by the vendor. * It is easy to implement, easy to use for technical people. * It is very stable, flexible and scalable. * It has many great features ready to use right after installation. * It is a little hard to understand for the non-technical user.

Highly adaptable to almost any environment and technology. The use of features, like Low Level Discovery, Templates, and Macros, allow an easy and customizable deployment over large environments. Regarding notifications, the ability to use different media types and custom scripts gives Zabbix virtually no limits (mail, SMS, Telegram, Slack, etc.). Integration with other Open Source solutions, like Grafana, expand the possibilities for data visualization. View full review »

* 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. View full review »

The financial setting is the most valuable feature, since Zabbix can use old data to current data to set the threshold. We can use previous data to set the threshold. View full review »
