"Zabbix Monitoring Tool Review"

What do you like best?

There are different views about Zabbix which vary from people to people and from industry to industry. The best part of Zabbix is customization of alerts as per our need/requirement. We can monitor servers, VM's, Web monitoring by declaring a set of keys which will trigger alerts like filesystem monitoring, CPU usage monitoring, Memory monitoring, etc.

What do you dislike?

We cannot export reports i.e. reporting is weak. It requires a lot of resources when compared to Nagios. The huge amount of data will be collected in our database if not tuned properly. Also, SNMP monitoring is a challenge as firewalls can cause problems for which we require a number of connections.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Please make sure you keep tuning your data to avoid performance issue. This is one thing which can trouble you. Also, have a check with the network team whether a firewall is blocking any connection. This is very common after you install an agent on a server and not able to communicate to the master server.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Firstly, Zabbix is an open source software so definitely, it has helped us in cost reduction. We can customize the alerts as per our requirement. For example, if we want an alert to be triggered when filesystem falls below the threshold limit of 80%. Coming to the web monitoring part, we can monitor every page whether it is loaded or not. This, in turn, has helped us to keep track of our website availability.

"Gestão e Monitoramento com Zabbix"

What do you like best?

Availability of multiple features in a single package, network asset checking and performance, custom interval data collection, flexibility of threshold values for incidents, customizing triggers, sending custom notification, real-time graphical monitoring, automatic discovery of hosts, proactive monitoring of hosts, etc. These are just some of the most diverse other functionality that Zabbix can offer.

We use zabbix to automate openings of calls from proactive clients that when it detects which fault in the services of our clients, the zabbix itself that is integrated to our portal of clients and interacts with the same through the templates and triggers opens the call without even the client need to contact our contact center to request opening of the SLA. With this, both our customers feel more at ease and secure with our services as our technical team takes the necessary actions in advance. This is just one example of what we can do with Zabbix.

What do you dislike?

So far, I have no objections. Well for all my needs that I had and implanted I had no problems with this solution, quite the contrary, because despite being an open source solution there is a very large community that are always willing to help you.

Recommendations to others considering the product

I already have a certain experience with zabbix and I can certainly suggest to other users that they are looking for a monitoring solution for their company or business that will have a single package all the necessary tools for their need.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Monitoring and performance of the network infrastructure as a whole. Easier decision making, proactive customer service. Backbone failure monitoring and agility in solving identified problems at the back, etc.

"Our Experience With The Monitoring System Zabbix"

What do you like best?

Zabbix is a control-software for manifold network parameters, servers’ operability and status of servers. Zabbix uses a malleable notification scheme that allows users to set up alarm signals by mail for almost every event. This function makes it possible to react rapidly to difficulties with the server. Zabbix offers brilliant visualization and informing capabilities based on the collected data. That’s why Zabbix can be considered an ideal tool for scaling and modeling.

What do you dislike?

We like that Zabbix functioning as a puller and trapper. All statistics, instrument settings, and reports in Zabbix are available through the web-interface. Web-interface establishes the necessary state of the network for you to be able to estimate your servers working from anywhere. It is hereto that a well-tuned Zabbix plays an essential part in monitoring the IT infrastructure.

Recommendations to others considering the product:

This is the best monitoring system for me. With a great desire, you can monitor any equipment.

What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Fortunately, this platform hasn’t caused lots of problems for our team. But, there are some things we are not entirely satisfied. On the one hand, the possibility of the user’s customization gives a range of obvious benefits. But on the other hand, if you don’t have a possibility to devote time to managing the program, it’s not an advantage anymore. For the program it is impossible to display the data about text types, to boo

"zabbix, Efficient monitoring always"

What do you like best?

One of the things I like most about zabbix is being able to access all the information of the service of any client, because it is much easier to treat any problem, not to mention the great effectiveness that zabbix has in alerting when the client link falls.

What do you dislike?

I do not really like the slowness it sometimes takes to be able to update the circuits of our customers that are falling.

Recommendations to others considering the product

I certainly recommend zabbix for all companies wishing to have one of the best monitoring services both internal and external, as well as monitoring our customers, zabbix also helps to monitor all our internal systems.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

With zabbix our monitoring of the clients becomes much easier and agile, as soon as we identify the alarm, we contact the client in order to normalize your link as soon as possible.

"The Best Free Network Monitor"

What do you like best?

A scalable, robust tool, easy to implement, which allows monitoring, correlation of events, this allows a forensic study on any event, in addition to being able to use proxies in different networks, the power to encrypt all the communication in a plus as soon as the previous versions, has a wide community of users that allows to rely on the construction of items to be monitored.

What do you dislike?

Its interface is not very friendly, the administration of the items within the devices is not practical, it should have a simpler administration in terms of the items within the devices.

Recommendations to others considering the product

For the implementation of Zabbix, you must have a defined plan, define the scope and stages in which the monitoring of the devices will be done and monitor them at each stage, because it is usually overwhelming when trying to address the set of items in the solution

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

It allows visibility of the devices, was created as part of our platform to comply with GDRP showing logs and the demonstration of the availability times of each device.

"zabbix - excellent network monitoring tool "

What do you like best?

Zabbix is a network monitoring tool that allows us to monitor the performance and availability of all services from applications involved in the network, to the numerous equipment that are interconnected to it, such as servers, hosts, switches, routers and many others. 

Zabbix is software under the terms of the GNU General Public License, Zabbix is free software.

What do you dislike?

in my current use I have nothing against the software that meets the needs of the network that I administer, it is a tool that has many features like creating a map of the network topology allowing administrators to have a notion of the installed and functional equipment on the network, through these features I have nothing against the software that meets very well the utilities required in the company.

Recommendations to others considering the product

great tool to manage network resources so that we have an idea of the consumption of network equipment

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

through zabbix it is possible to have a broad notion of the network as resource consumption and know if the equipment is meeting the demand or if the network needs equipment with more resources, this is very important to have a network with good performance.

"Satisfactory monitoring"

What do you like best?

Easy dashboard, intuitive settings, faithful sensors, efficient triggers, accurate graphics, complete inventory and reporting, a true monitoring tool and still free.

What do you dislike?

For those who do not know, it is complicated to set up, but nothing that a good search does not help and you are improving, but there was a big change in the new version and left a bit confusing.

Recommendations to others considering the product:

I certainly indicate the use of the solution, as it will greatly help in managing your infrastructure, from small IT environments to large backbones. Reducing costs and waste of time with unproductivity. Indispensable in incident management and disaster prevention in datacenters.

Not to mention that the solution does not have costs for acquisition, only with training of its team to leave the solution well established.

What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

The tool helps us daily in the monitoring of our clients' backbone and circuits. In addition to alerts, maps are an important resource for those who need to manage a decentralized infrastructure.

"The best monitoring application"

What do you like best?

The fact of monitoring the link and knowing in real time the use of it. so you can generate monthly realotrices for customers and without speaking proactive. I serve multiple clients and can get in touch

with each other, even if they feel a problem with the link or equipment. Zabbix is an open source monitoring software tool for various IT components, including networks, servers, virtual machines and cloud services. Zabbix provides monitoring metrics,

  among others, network usage, CPU load, and disk space consumption. It is impossible not to like

What do you dislike?

The only thing that gets me a little worried is the Delay issue, but I believe all monitoring tools should have.

Recommendations to others considering the product

As I said earlier, Zabbix is an open source monitoring software tool for various IT components, including networks.

servers, virtual machines, and cloud services. Zabbix provides monitoring metrics,

among others, network usage, CPU load and disk space consumption. For those looking for a monitoring tool that has quality, safety and a great cost. Are you there! Zabbix is the ideal

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

I needed to use the monitoring application after we contracted a network service with a third-party company.

And the company that provides the network uses Zabbix. they informed me that the Zabbix monitoring software tool would be ideal for the company as it provides monitoring metrics, among others, network utilization, CPU load and disk space consumption. I am very satisfied with the application.

"Functionality and availability of services only with Zabbix."

What do you like best?

It collects statistics such as hardware temperature, disk and voltage faults through IPMI, which reduces the risk.

With a good monitoring system, in addition to the options for notifications if problems arise.

What do you dislike?

It is somewhat complex, but there is a learning platform in it, which is quite important for the most recent users and this makes them very easy to use.

Recommendations to others considering the product:

You can also use it in stores that want to build your own monitoring infrastructure, instead of using a service.

Good tool for the company, with high features to offer and very good quality and breadth.

What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

With this program we were able to prevent small problems (such as hard drive failures) from growing without being controlled and causing very serious interruptions.

Zabbix monitors both the internal and external IT infrastructure. It has given engineers the visibility to find the root cause of some problem caused instead of having to search with different systems.

"Powerful monitoring tool with many plugins and addons available"

What do you like best?

I love that Zabbix is extendable. Specifically that you can write custom applications for it's database, including responding to events within the application itself.

What do you dislike?

While the community is strong, I felt like some elements of the Zabbix interface did require somewhat of a steep learning curve. Once you get past that, however, it's a fantastic tool to use.

Recommendations to others considering the product

The fact that the group behind Zabbix offers a virtual machine to get you started on makes it a snap to get started with. Even if you need to resize based on your needs, having the basic starter in the virtual machine was super helpful.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Performance monitoring and alerting. Previously we had to maintain multiple systems (Cacti/Nagios, etc), but Zabbix support many of the same features out of the box and has the ability to install agents on Solaris (a big win for us) that made adding hosts very trivial.

"The very practical monitoring software"

What do you like best?

It's a robust monitoring software and very intuitive. The deploy is faster than other monitoring software and have a lot of complements for cover a wide variety of software, hardware, services that are currently used in the market and that grows daily.

Because it is highly intuitive it makes it interoperable, quick to migrate and customizable. you can download the sources to be customized according to the customer needs. It can be installed in a large number of operating systems and administration is via web.

What do you dislike?

The templates in several occasions generate errors when installing. Because need a libraries, maybe incompatible with the operating system in which it is installed. Need do some adjust or customize your own solution. This can be an advantage or disadvantage beacuse you can create a team for optimize the system.

Although it is easy to install, user manuals are very extensive which makes many users desist from using it.

Recommendations to others considering the product

For small and mid range networks it's the best solution for deploy. Can cover a lot types of devicres and brands. Can monitoring a lot type of services and software, customize the notifications.

The low consumption of resources makes it a quality product in the market and easy integration with third-party tools (templates), it has a very large community which provides the support

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Normally i use for monitoring this items:

- Network Monitoring and reporting.

- Servers Hardware and resources.

- Operating System and load.

- Create graphs and maps.

- Customize alarms and graphs for users, this can help for create profiles.

"Not bad, if you will work on it"

What do you like best?

Zabbix is extremely flexible while having a good architecture for reducing repeating yourself. It has a lot of information available and the ability to customize how you see it. Its support of ipv6 was critical to my decision making as I don't want to have to switch monitoring tools later. I also enjoy changing the interface, as it is relatively easy even if it is via PHP. I suppose I could make a frontend in something else if I really wanted to, as it's all just pulling from the database. This makes report generation simple as well, though I am not doing this in any sort of fancy way yet.

What do you dislike?

It's not very intuitive and frankly their documentation is not very consumable. You basically have to read a lot more than you really should need to in order to get how Zabbix works. Luckily there's a wealth of tutorials out there for a variety of scenarios to get you started. It also supports things that helped me choose it over previous tools I've used for this.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Be ready to read. All these tools need you to learn a lot about them as they are doing complicated things. Once you're in there it's much easier as you grow your core concepts in the tool.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

I just needed to know what the states of various pieces of infrastructure were. I was pleased that I could also take action upon certain error types, some of which was built in but I could extend it with my own logic.

"excellent to monitor"

What do you like best?

1.- It's Open Source, that means if you do not like something ... you change it. You do not have a company behind telling you what improvements you need, if you need them, you develop them and you already have them.

2.- The Zabbix team is really good, and I say it because I have seen how Nagios, cacti and other projects fall into oblivion and do not evolve because they are projects without a company behind them. Did not you say it was OpenSource? Yes. It is OpenSource but you have a company that if you need support, offers it to you at prices ... of laughter, compared to any other tool I can say that it is between 80% and 90% cheaper.

3.- The zabbix community, in forums, blogs and others is really active, it is a good project and people need this type of tools in their companies because of the low cost and how they behave in large environments.

What do you dislike?

I do not like much the graphical part of the graphics that it provides, if they could improve the attractiveness of the same ones it would be excellent because they can be used for delivery of executive reports, normally I use the data and I pass them to my own graphics to be able to present them

Recommendations to others considering the product

improve GUI but they are the best for monitoring tools

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

tenia un software que monitoreaba pero no realizaba esta tarea tan bien como zabbix , por lo que pude mejorar el departamento de monitoreo con esta herramienta permitiendome monitorear muchas mas cosas que la otra.

The main benefit was being able to monitor more things and in a better way

"Mi experiencia con Zabbix"

What do you like best?

Lo mejor de Zabbix en mi experiencia es que tiene un reportes muy detallados obteniendo graficas en diferentes formatos de toda la información acerca del estado de la red y de los hosts que se crean oportunos.

Soporta un gran número de plataformas (Linux, Solaris, HP-UX, AIX, Free BSD, Open BSD, OS X, Tru64/OSF1, Windows NT 4.0, Windows 2000, Windows 2003, Windows XP, Windows Vista).

Reside en su interface web soportado por una base de datos SQL (MySQL, PostgreSQL o SQLite).

Posee un sistema proactivo que permite solucionar automáticamente los problemas, un sistema de monitorización, alertas y visualización de gráficos que no tienen otros sistemas de monitorización.

Es de código abierto

What do you dislike?

Lo peor que tiene Zabbix en mi opinión es que es de uso muy complejo.

Los manuales de usuario son muy extensos lo que hace desistir a muchos usuarios de utilizarlo.

Recommendations to others considering the product

A usuarios sin experiencia en este tipo de Software no se lo recomendaria, ya que es un software bastente complejo y lleva un tiempo hacerse con el, de lo contrario a gente con experiencia si que lo recomendaria, ya que es bastante potente

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Puedes monitorizar en tiempo real Servidores de aplicaciones, para saber el estado de ellos al momento, y ver historiales de incidencias o de cargas

What do you like best?

we like zabbix too much because it besides helping us to monitor our internal services, it also helps us a lot in the monitoring of our customers' circuits.

What do you dislike?

one of the problems that occurs at times is when some client circuit crashes, and zabbix does not immediately alert. takes a while to be able to alert.

"easy and low-priced to implement."

What do you like best?

this software is very well to create your monitoring tool safely and cheaply, with a physical server of not much capacity you can create a very useful and robust tool, very competitive with the market monitoring tools is quite versatile, with little knowledge in programming you can do it without problems.

What do you dislike?

i cant said anything wrong about this software is very good, you can handle everything about monitoring, if i said you can implement a monitoring server whit a small server and a few command lines you believe me?

Recommendations to others considering the product

totally recommended if you need an application to monitor your network this is the least option in the market is very good and cheap to implement.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

i did solve so many problem whit this app , because it permit you see the behavior of the network and see anything problem in it, that is the most relevan feature of this software, the versatility that you can add in your netwrok whit this software is so good you can change your NOC for better.

"zabbix, monitoring with effective"

What do you like best?

I like zabbix too much, its monitoring is almost perfect, every circuit of the clients as soon as they fall, it is already alert and we have contacted you immediately to solve the problem.

What do you dislike?

What I do not like very much about zabbix is that in some moments, it is rare, more often than not, that the client circuit crashes and takes a little time to alarm and sometimes it causes dissatisfaction in the client.

Recommendations to others considering the product:

I recommend zabbix for all companies wishing to have one of the best monitoring services, with it, without doubt your customers will always be satisfied.

What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

with it we solve many problems, in addition to alerting customer circuits, we still have several information regarding the customer circuit that helps in solving the problem.

"Functionalities and their attributes"

What do you like best?

We use the tool for mapping and capacity utilization in our backbone, where in addition to monitoring, we create triggers for actions in certain services that we configure

What do you dislike?

Sometimes we have difficulty with the native templates that come in the application library, though it's not something to criticize.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Application provides a great graphical interface and contains the possibility of creating maps for verification of bandwidth utilization and triggers for specific pre-determined actions.

Great application.

zabbix is used daily because we use it to monitor our internal system, and it makes it much easier to identify any problem, and also monitor the link of our customers that total efficiency.

"I love Zabbix after learning how to use it. "

What do you like best?

Zabbix has given us the ability to monitor all of our servers along with giving us the ability to receive alerts via email/jabber and even integrated it with pager duty. They have a great site to download templates for other devices that are not loaded by default upon installation. They've made it simple to transfer Zabbix to another server. I've had to do this a couple times and it been easy. They're latest version of Zabbix running 3.2 has a great interface. I love how this product has grown and looking beautiful.

What do you dislike?

I don't like the fact there are not a lot of people using this making it hard to find instructional video to help solve problems or how-to's.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Zabbix had included a lot of the templates you need for monitoring already. Use their template site to find relevant templates for your hardware or software.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

We are able to proactively monitor and resolve an issue that may arise. We can see trends and when problems actually first start.

"Life Saving "

What do you like best?

Now i go to my second implementation, in first case the recon of all infrastructure and the availability to have the numbers in seconds to make the capacity planning an easy work. Additional to this, the developers group are very complacent with the fine tunning of web server Apache and GlassFish.

What do you dislike?

The beginning is a hard path when you are a beginner, the "no agent" makes the work easier but you have to load credentials, then a i create limited user in all server just for zabbix.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Zabbix is the app that "what you see, what you get" always can became more, the interface can be better, it can have more features, can do automatic stuff, but is a one of the 3 top of market in this apart. You don´t need a specialized person to deploy and admin (ROI), you can present to the board a real view of the thing, the IT and Network thing. You can better all you environment based on zabbix analysis, saved time for tunning the applications, services and hardware and save money with that (a delight to the managers) you can be better through enhance your server room (recognition)

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

The sysadmin, creator of word went to another country... and the 60 servers became orphaned. I´m new in the company, my first needed it was to know the environment, every detail. And how do that?... zabbix is the answer.

"Great monitoring platform"

What do you like best?

We are a WISP and minitoring is very important part of our work. We are using Zabbix for more than 10 years and we are very happy. Zabbix allows you to modify triggers and create your own system what works for you. Their support team great as well.

What do you dislike?

It’s not like I dislike but as it is for free you need to be aware that system will require some knowledge regards database optimisation. But that’s when you are monitoring quite a big network with a lot of items per second.

"zabbix, systems under surveillance"

What do you like best?

we use zabbix daily, and everyone is monitoring our systems in case any problem occurs we are already inside and we solve quickly.

What do you dislike?

the problem that not only I face, but all here we face sometimes, is the issue of delay because the link alarms and does not show on our proactive screen, and sometimes it takes a while to address the problem.

Recommendations to others considering the product

I recommend zabbix for companies that need good software, capable of monitoring not only their internal systems but more as external clients if necessary.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

it brings several benefits, because with it it is much easier to have total control over everything that happens in the organization, and already tried to solve the fastest.

I do not like much of a delay that sometimes occurs, so we ended up getting in touch with the customers.

Recommendations to others considering the product

I would definitely recommend zabbix for all companies as it is great for monitoring internal systems and all customers.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

"A stalwart soul amongst its competitors"

What do you like best?

The ease of configuring our various systems into Zabbix and reviewing recorded metrics in a GUI are probably the best features for our team. We've got a lot of resources and aren't typically pushing them to the brink. However, when issues arise, the ability to analyze and correlate load across multiple hosts has been a big win.

What do you dislike?

A monitoring system and the story of the boy who cried wolf, never the twain should meet. Unfortunately, we have some situations where we receive so many messages about an error that it leads to the formation of bad habits. This is largely due to our system architecture and how specific monitors detect and report the same issue on multiple hosts. Specifically, storage utilization on a shared mount. We've made some inroads in solving this, but it continues to be a source of spam and desensitization to warning messages.

Recommendations to others considering the product

We've used other monitoring systems like Nagios and Hyperion. Zabbix is a simple solution that has many of the core features you want out of a system/application monitoring application. I recommend it as a tool that you evaluate when considering system monitors.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

We have quite a few hosts across multiple test and an operations environment. Being able to integrate the monitoring of those into a single monitoring solution has been a critical aspect of our systems approach. Being able to create custom screens/dashboards for high-interest metrics makes it simpler to filter through the noise and focus on what we care the most about.

"Powerful, open source monitoring system"

What do you like best?

Before Zabbix, I was using Nagios as the monitoring system, Munin for usage graphs, and Diamond for application specific graphs. Now, we are able to keep it in one, slack solution, which is easier for developers to use. There is a great community, which is very helpful, and on the GitHub, you are able to found a lot of templates for almost any application. Community support is quick and responsive. Using API, you are able to integrate Zabbix with many other applications.

What is important for us - Zabbix is open source software, so we were able to fix some stuff by ourselves.

What do you dislike?

It's sometimes hard to configure, needs strong technical skills. Also, database usage isn't optimal, and there is no easy option to undo your changes if you (for example) remove a host from the zabbix. The user interface could be improved because it's a little outdated. The graphs could also be improved, the current solutions is useful, but definitely, interactive graphs could help with analyzing data.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Sometimes it's better to hire external consultant to fully setup zabbix.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

We were able to cut time, that developer needed to analyze part of the problem, because all graphs, automated issue reporting, and notifications were consolidated in one place. Our alerts are fully automated, forwarded to slack, then if nobody responds in few minutes, automatically send to mobiles of our team.

"Essential Tool For Network Monitoring"

What do you like best?

It is a sensorial tool of centralization of alarms, very simple in the use, configuration of new elements.

Besides there is the ease of creating dashboards that help us daily.

We have also been able to insert a monitoring map so that it is easier for the monitoring team.

What do you dislike?

I have no negative points about the tool, it delivers all the features that our company needs.

We rely heavily on it and use this unique tool daily with its many resources.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Smashing tool for network monitoring with many functionalities.

We have been able to centralize the network alarms, not only of equipment such as switches and routers, but also of our infrastructure alarm centers.

We have created several dashboards with important information that are monitored daily by our monitoring team.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

We were able to centralize all the network and infrastructure alarms in our network in a single tool.

In addition we inserted monitoring maps which made our network monitoring more intuitive.

We have also been able to reduce the time to identify failures and recover from these failures.

"Open Source Monitoring Tool"

What do you like best?

The fact that the software is open source and free. Not to mention the infinite network monitoring capabilities available.

What do you dislike?

Because the software is open source, many of the features must be deployed in a personalized way by each user, as there are not many "predefined templates".

Recommendations to others considering the product

Implant the software without fear of making mistakes, it will exceed your expectations with its immense amount of resources and customization.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Through SNMP and ICMP protocols, it is possible to monitor power failures, closed / open ports, unavailable equipment, latency oscillations, fiber optic signals and so on. The mapping application for monitoring is fantastic, collaborating on the mapping of cities, states and countries.

"Great monitoring platform"

What do you like best?

Simple to setup and easy to manage solution. Very little in-depth tech skills needed to deploy initially and raft of templates available for free online to make it an essential monitoring tool for any business.

What do you dislike?

Support, if you want it - looked to be costly if you simply want light email only assistance on your setup.

Recommendations to others considering the product

A little linux knowledge is recommended, but not hard to pick up. The online forums are also great. I would advise checking template galleries prior to implementation to ensure that you have correct monitoring templates for the kit you will be checking, else creation is a little cumbersome manually.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

This is our core monitoring platform, used to montior all servers and perimeter for any issues in the network. We utilise it to alert the team on any low disks, failed devices or loss of ping to certain aspects of the network. It also monitors flow and other metrics via SNMP with a single pane view for easy management.

"Great open source monitoring and alerting"

What do you like best?

This product runs without fail. I have used it with 5 proxies and never had a problem. One thing you need to count on is your monitoring system being stable. Others I have used aren't as reliable, then you are never sure if you are getting false alerts or have alerting coverage. This does all the standard monitoring and alerting very well.

What do you dislike?

The interface isn't the greatest and they could do some web performance monitoring a little better.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Free and open source, so it works as well as you have time to put in to it, but it is very powerful. Support on the forums is pretty good, and templates have been created for a lot of servers/devices out there.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

We monitor servers with the agent, SNMP devices, JMX endpoints and REST web APIs.

"zabbix, accurately monitored systems"

What do you like best?

we use zabbix every day to monitor our systems, because whenever a problem occurs with our systems or the internet, it alerts us immediately.

What do you dislike?

what should be reviewed and improved is that in some moments it takes time to alert, and this ends up begging a bit because we did not treat the problem because we did not know.

Recommendations to others considering the product

I recommend zabbix for any company that wants to monitor their internal systems, and have complete control over any problems that may arise.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

with zabbix, we avoid that many problems are prolonged for a long time, or in most cases we already avoid that falls and we solve immediately.

"Comprehensive Monitoring for Everything"

What do you like best?

Zabbix isn't limited to monitoring just one or two aspects of an environment. It can monitor all systems and bring in just about anything that outputs a counter or log file to be monitored.

The system can perform trending analysis and determine when a problem is getting ready to happen, not just rely on thresholds.

The system utilizes MySQL which is easy to find literature on how to manage. It is also preparing to support Elasticsearch for a storage back-end which can scale massively.

The use of agents means that there are multiple points of monitoring which distributes the monitoring load. It also means that other products which rely on a centralized "probe" to read counters don't get too bogged down or take out multiple monitoring points when they fault.

Because Zabbix is open source it is easy to run a setup in both your Production and development environments which makes testing much easier.

What do you dislike?

While the use of agents is great, it also means that you have to keep them updated as time passes. This means that there's a management aspect to keeping Zabbix up and running. Also if the agent stops running you lose your counters for that time period.

Because the system is open-source you will rely on yourself or the community to write monitoring packages for the systems or applications that you are keeping an eye on. Because of this if something changes and you're using a package that is abandoned or hasn't been updated in a long time you may find yourself fixing the bugs solo. WHile this means you can keep things up and running it also means that you may need to scrap your monitors at some point and recreate them in order to keep a system monitored.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Have a solid understanding of Linux. Also an understanding of MySQL or PostgreSQL is a must. If setting up HA you will need to know how to configure SQL monitoring and backups.

A full understanding of the environment you are monitoring is key. If you don't know how it works you can't monitor it. This is true of all monitoring products, not just Zabbix.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Systems monitoring with predictive analytics.

Capacity planning.

We now no longer have to pay for our monitoring solution. Where in the past we paid for our monitoring solution and then had to ensure we didn't breach our license, our only concern now is that our Zabbix server can handle the load.

"Versatile tool but a steep learning curve "

What do you like best?

The tool provides monitoring of most anything that can be monitored on a system. We use it for our Windows and Linux workstations and servers.

What do you dislike?

The interface is sometimes not as intuitive and the learning curve for using it can be steep.

Recommendations to others considering the product

I recommend trying it. Despite the steep learning curve in how to do certain tasks, Zabbix is very effective.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

With Zabbix, we are monitoring the status of workstation and server systems. We receive an alert based on defined attributes. For example if CPU usage stays at 95% or higher for more than 5 minutes the team receives an email with the information about the workstation or server.

"Excellent alerting and monitoring platform - very flexible and powerful"

What do you like best?

Zabbix is very flexible and thus powerful. It can be customized in many different ways and supports a great deal of systems/sensors. We use it to monitor and alert on software/hardware/events/conditions/health status across hundreds of servers, hundreds of sites, thousands of workstations and thousands of network devices. The ability to configure the system in your specific way instead of being forced to do it how the vendor wants you to use the system is its main benefit.

What do you dislike?

It can be somewhat complex to configure and use, especially for those new to it or those who use it infrequently. It takes some skill to navigate to the right screen/page for actions/status items that you may need. It's data presentation can also be very overwhelming or not very easy to digest in a glance.

Recommendations to others considering the product

If you need powerful and flexible monitoring and alerting solution - then try Zabbix, but keep in mind that it is not very intuitive and can be complicated to setup. It can do a lot for technology based organizations or those that have very significant IT infrastructure. Role based permissions and actions help limit tasks that employees can do within the software.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

We monitor a lot of mission critical software and hardware across 80 organization. Zabbix alerts us on any out of norm conditions or problems. This way we know about a problem often before our clients do.
