I would like to see a more flexible mobile client, and better HA out of the box. It would also be very interesting to have a GUI on the proxy server[s] and the ability to have the zabbix proxies send it's data to multiple zabbix servers. This is very valuable when a site is completely disconnected from the wan.

There are a lot of things that can use improvement which is why we are seeking a new solution. Network monitoring is a problem. It gives too many false positives. For example, it notifies us that a server is down while I'm using that server — the server it claims is down — to do the search. A moment after the search is complete, everything is OK again. It's called flapping. It has some flapping control, but it's not as good as other products. I used to use Icinga and it is a better product in that respect.

It's OK for me as is, but some frontend improvements would be nice.

It is a little complex to config and implement so I'd like for them to make it easier to config, for example, a configuration for SNMPv3 or trap listener on it.

I want Zabbix to improve the UX/UI. Zabbix doesn't use a JavaScript chart for images, and I want them to improve this.

I wish it had more options for personalizing the product, such as being able to include your company's logo without editing text files. More templates for specific devices.
