"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.

"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.

What Application Performance Monitoring (APM) solution do you use?

Thanks for letting us know!

"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 informaci贸n acerca del estado de la red y de los hosts que se crean oportunos.

Soporta un gran n煤mero 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 autom谩ticamente los problemas, un sistema de monitorizaci贸n, alertas y visualizaci贸n de gr谩ficos que no tienen otros sistemas de monitorizaci贸n.

Es de c贸digo abierto

What do you dislike?

Lo peor que tiene Zabbix en mi opini贸n 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

"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.

"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麓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麓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鈥檚 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鈥檚 when you are monitoring quite a big network with a lot of items per second.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Zabbix is definitely a worth to try.

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

Zabbix is our core monitoring platform. Without Zabbix we couldn鈥檛 do any support in real time to our customers.

"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.

"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.

"A very good open source monitoring tool "

What do you like best?

Easy to setup from scratch, a very good open source monitoring tool through which u can monitor ur hardware utilization of the servers, have alerts around them. Same can be done for monitoring services running in the servers.It is a very light service which does not hog your memory up nor our processor. Very good tool for devops.

What do you dislike?

Zabbix UI needs improvment, most of the thing aren't self explanatory. Can be a little tricky for beginners.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Zabbix is a good open source monitoring tool, which is very simple to use and easy to integrate.

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

- Centralized monitoring of servers and services.

- Email alerts and notification which allows devops team to proactively slove issues.

"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.

"SysAdmin Engineer"

What do you like best?

Low Level Discovery is so powerful. I don't understand why so many people sometimes oversight this amazing feature. You can write applications that output the JSON format for LDD and you can even use Zabbix to instrument your applications performance for free! Zabbix distributed architecture is great, the documentation is very thoughtful.

What do you dislike?

Easy to use, hard to master. Mastering Zabbix have a steep learning curve, but that is a consequence of being a very flexible monitoring system.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Give it a try! At first glance, Zabbix might appear like an outdated tool, and for some people just noticing that the front-end is written in PHP scares them away in panic (yeah I know is PHP!) however given the distributed architecture of Zabbix you even can ignore that front-end and still have a fully working monitoring system. Zabbix is a very powerful and extensible tool if you master the tool you will really need nothing else for system monitoring solution, except for a huge log monitoring where I think Zabbix falls short and other solutions like ElasticSearch might be more appropriate. A note to developers if they ever read this, the actions section needs a little refinement, only depending on passing positional arguments is a little bit limiting.

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

I have been able to self discover infrastructure components and application services, auto-register cloud hosts into Zabbix, and trigger the Zabbix API to automate the process of off-boarding cloud servers, Zabbix has a very important role in the server lifecycle.

"Peace of Mind for IT Infrastructure"

What do you like best?

The most important aspect of any monitoring application is reliability - this provides administrative staff the peace of mind that is critical to operations. You also can't beat the price - it's FREE. Besides that the alerts and visualization are more than sufficient for a small to medium sized IT infrastructure. Other notable features:

Process monitoring

Web based interface and free 3rd party mobile apps

Customization of alerts

Support for most all OS platforms

Support for SNMP

Easy of configuration with templates

Database monitors - these are freely available via the active forum and commuity

What do you dislike?

With more power comes complexity but this a partially mitigated via the active community forum. The documentation is not the best and like most complex software platforms can be confusing and missing.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Due diligence with what you want to achieve and set the expectation level of the implementation team accordingly. Planning is important - do the templates and agent support your monitoring environment.

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

The main business problem is downtime that is not good for any real-time operations. The service monitor provide advanced warnings and pro-active alerts when things are starting to bad; this provide the admin staff early warning and a chance to mitigate any situation that poses a risk of downtime.

"Great monitoring software"

What do you like best?

We have been using Zabbix for a few years in our Data Center. Zabbix is a perfect tool and provides a lot of options and customization. Easy to implement, agent deployment is fast. The agent also has low memory usage. Lots of dashboards.

What do you dislike?

It lacks some advanced monitoring capabilities.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Zabbix is definitely a robust monitoring tools, which is open source with good community support.

It provides everything we needs to monitor our IT infrastructure. While there are various templates, wit h Zabbix you are able to change triggers and create the system what works for you.

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

We are monitoring the entire data center IT infrastructure, network devices and servers. Generally, Zabbix has been proved as a reliable solution for continuous monitoring. I would recommend it to anyone who is looking to implement monitoring solution.

"Capable, customizable open source monitoring tool"

What do you like best?

Zabbix is a customizable open source tool that adapts well to a wide variety of applications, allowing centralized monitoring of a complete infrastructure. It's easy to build custom plugins for applications that may not be part of the existing community. It's a very visual tool and useful for trending and visualizing your data.

It allows the creation of custom graphs, charts and alerts. Its extensibility means that we can use it as a single monitoring and alerting solution for nearly everything we do.

What do you dislike?

There is a relatively steep learning curve to Zabbix. Some of the navigation and screens are not initially intuitive and take some getting used to.

As with any open source project, there are some situations where an enhancement requires you to get your hands dirty. The "vendor" (community) may not have it as a priority so you'll take it upon yourself to develop the change you want.

Recommendations to others considering the product

If evaluating Zabbix, give it a thorough try. It can be difficult to wrap your hear around at first, but it's a lightweight solution that, quirks aside, can be a complete one as well.

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

We use Zabbix to monitor our site infrastructure. This includes load balancers, web servers, databases, storage appliances, etc. We track application and database performance, and monitor throughput.

We use the custom graphing capabilities to produce informative charts. Its ability to show trending data going back for years is helpful for identifying events of interest. For example, we trend a number of response times for hardware and applications and visualize changes to identify the positive or negative impacts.

Zabbix is our centralized monitoring and escalation solution. We create multiple tiers for support personnel, build in escalation paths, and automatically rotate on call resources according to a pre-determined schedule.

"Good monitoring tool for small or medium sized systems"

What do you like best?

Number of features that work out of the box. It has a pretty good charting, predefined templates might solve a lot of cases.

Price. It's free, so you could use it everywhere and buy a support only if you really need it.

API. It allows to integrate zabbix with any other system.

What do you dislike?

Performance with high number of items. We've experienced some when zabbix stuck to processing data from proxy zabbix instances to the main one. So we've had a 3 days delay data.

Old style web ui. It was updated in recent version, but it still looks more like web 1.0. For example if they replaces charts with a javascript solution, like highcharts or d3.js it will be really better.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Zabbix can solve a bunch of tasks, you can even a built a something like a intrusion detection system on top of it, but a main purpose of zabbix it is a system health monitoring.

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

I've worked as performance testing engineer and zabbix is a good solution for storing performance metrics.

Triggers are very useful for checking that system is ready for testing.

"An amazing and open source tool to monitoring your Infrastructure and Business"

What do you like best?

The evolution of the tool and his community are, for me, the astonishing features about it that I really like about this tool.

In term of features, there is a great range of possibilities to monitor you network but the killer feature for me is the possibility of acting pro-actively in a automated form trough actions and let the app managers or even the final users visualize information about their applications and have some sort of interaction with them.

What do you dislike?

The Web Interface is very useful for administrators, but if you really need a good solution to create and provide some insightful reports, then you going to need a third party application (like grafana and others); Zabbix Interface is limited in this field.

Another point, in terms of a enterprise solution is: the WebInterface doesn't support authorization plugins or even authorization using a LDAP database (e.g); in this point, you can use LDAP or HTTP (Kerberos, Winbind and other authentication methods enters in this room) to authenticate a user but not to authorize, which is not so suitable for enterprise environments.

Recommendations to others considering the product

If you need a tool have a great possibilities of integration, supports both Unixes and Windows, integrating a great range of features, like VMWare Monitoring Support, JMX Monitoring, SNMP, Agent Monitoring and customization/integration in the side of clients then, this solution can be for you.

In the integration part, I'll recommend some sort of Bash/PowerShell (or Python :D) knowledge and in the part of the administration of the application a good set of Linux or Unixes skills is recommended and good skills to maintain a healthy database can be very good as well.

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

I'm working with this tool for 5 years now and I solved different kind of problems: DataCenter IT monitoring, Business monitoring and some integration with Enterprise apps as Well.

"Zabbix - Multi-Platform Monitoring Tool"

What do you like best?

Zabbix has proven itself to be a highly effective and flexible monitoring tool. We utilise the flexibility of the system as we do not only monitor Server Tolerances, Services & Network Utilisation. We also monitor less common things like Hot Folders and also our VPN users.

What do you dislike?

Customizability. If all of your servers are very similar then this might not effect you. Now, if all of your servers are virtually identical, you may not experience this problem.

However, what if you have a number of servers where you would like to tweak a few of the triggers points then, guess what? You have to use a separate template for them. Worse case you may end up with each server having their own template.

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

This gives us network wide access to monitoring and alerts. We have the dashboard showing in a number of offices. The system also can escalate to the appropriate technician if configured so.

"Becomes a proactive company"

What do you like best?

What I like about Zabbix that it is aimed at providing information infrastructure that monitors and services or processes, when you know that IT resources have and the information from these, you have time where they can best develop strategies and the objectives of the company in its computer park. In addition, Zabbix helps you in planning and organization, acquisition and implementation, because you know what services are available and you should give support, Zabbix monitors the status and performance of your devices or IT equipment through its client using various especially the SNMP protocols, with this you can take comfort in knowing that you have control of the information. Zabbi leads the company to take full advantage of their equipment and dispositovos monitored, thus achieving maximizing benefits, capitalizing on opportunities and gaining competitive advantage. One of the underrated options Zabbix is 鈥嬧媡hat it is your ideal for your projects Internet of things companion. Forget Nagios, Cacti and similar software.

What do you dislike?

You want to start Zabbix in your company? You know how to use Linux? You have some notion of ITIL?

If you do not have expertise in IT infrastructure, IT Governance, ITIL or Linux will be a real headache.

Despite that unlike Nagios, Zabbix works via web, you need to know Linux, SNMP, OIDs know and understand and read system events.

Some things will have to perform on command console or at the time such applications rely Webmin to complete some tasks or make troubleshooting.

Zabbix does not work alone. You need a partner to handle the management of events, information or reporting problems Zabbix. In my opinion one of the best companions of Zabbix are "pfsense", "Splunk" and "GLPI".

Splunk will serve you for insights when you have too many devices to monitor and report many similar problems or require taking based on analysis of logs decisions.

GLPI in turn can be integrated with Zabbix where Zabbix can send status information via API equipment, devices, resources or services offline, problems or blocked and generate a ticket to be served.

With pfsense you can interconnect different network segments and monitor them with Zabbix or even monitor multiple remote sites even if they are using VPN.

Recommendations to others considering the product

You must have trained technical staff in Linux

You must have technical staff who understands the different protocols, ports and types of service

You must have people with ability to analyze events, records and logs

You must have a good system of UTM to interconnect your network and monitor both your local network and your external networks.

You must have a good knowledge in troubleshooting network or linux.

You must have a good hardware if you are monitoring many devices Zabbix makes heavy use of the system especially database and hard disk.

Do not expect results from one day to another Zabbix implementation takes time and must have a project or list of things to know that you're going setting, adapting and inventory and then monitor it.

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

- Monitor all devices on my network

- Know your status

- Knowing what services are running or which are failing

- Segmenting the types of equipment and perform tasks by type and category

- Know the status of my network

- Making decisions on time

- Automate certain processes

- Have information Just in Time

- Being able to know that this could fail or failing on my network or infrastructure and take preventive action contrary to be taking corrective action.

"Great open-source solution and nagios replacement"

What do you like best?

I find it very easy to use and the snmpd polling features flawless. We utilize this to monitor our production sites and have never had problems with false reporting. The GUI is easy to navigate and installing/setup on Linux very easy.

What do you dislike?

Nothing to currently dislike, this product has met all of our network and system monitoring needs.

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

We require all systems up with strict SLA. zabbix has allowed us to respond quickly when systems become inaccessible or when network switch ports change to disable. Great tool

"Perfect monitoring system"

What do you like best?

1. Excellent flexibility and configurability of the system.

2. Cross-platform! The ability to monitor all available operating systems.

3. Good documentation. Zabbix is well documented but even if something could not find in the official documents, you can easily find it on the Internet.

4. The open source code!

What do you dislike?

1. Not an optimal database for historical data

2. Somewhat outdated user interface

Recommendations to others considering the product

If you don't understand something in the system do not hesitate to ask on the official forum. There, you will quickly be able to answer the vast majority of issues

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

Monitoring the work of other software systems we use in our projects. Guarantee their work or at least alert them in case of malfunctions.

For a very little time it is possible to deploy a full monitoring system which will solve almost all tasks.

"Very complex and hard to work with but an easiest of exists on the market right now"

What do you like best?

Comparable to other easier to work with.

Once you learn it - very powerful and has a lot of customisations

Provide almost any kind of network monitoring you may ever think you need

What do you dislike?

Complex UI, hard to understand what and how to do. Bad documentation. As a developer it was very disgusting experience. Possibly as an IT or network administrator the experience will be different

Recommendations to others considering the product

Be ready to work a lot with google :) most of information regarding "how to" we get from forums / stackoverflow and others. Templates were downloaded for different internet sources.

If you developer and may have an option to get support from Consultant or any network specialist - it will be the best practice and save a lot of time.

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

Network monitoring - whether specific server or service is alive, how fats it responses. Network utilization

"Zabbix is an amazing free monitoring solution"

What do you like best?

Zabbix is highly configurable and I've found it very useful both personally and professionally. While Nagios is usually the gold standard of Linux monitoring, Zabbix basically includes all of the features of Nagios along with a a free web interface as well as built-in graphs! The ability to graph any and all data imaginable from Zabbix is definitely my favorite feature.

What do you dislike?

While Zabbix is an amazing application, I believe that it would be beneficial if there were additional agent-less features that allowed simpler monitoring of servers or even URLs without installing and configuring the Zabbix agent software.

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

We have stream-lined alerting and reporting of problem situations by having Zabbix report errors to Slack automatically. I created a custom integration script for Zabbix that I've called "zabbix-slack-alertscript" and made freely publicly available:

"Zabbix a great monitoring tool nowadays."

What do you like best?

Zabbix is actually a really helpful and indispensable tool in any company environment, its variety of supported devices make Zabbix a solution for almost any kind of system you want to monitoring.

What do you dislike?

Its needing of a better management of reports. Sometimes when I need to create a report for an specific case, I have to mix Zabbix's results with Excel formulas to get what I need.

Recommendations to others considering the product

One of the best things Zabbix has, is the possibility to export as a XML file all the configuration from its modules, my recommendation - do periodically backups.

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

Before integrate Zabbix to our business whe have tried different options, but not of them fulfilled our needs. With Zabbix all our servers, virtual and phisical, are completely monitored with on-time alarms and historical information.

What do you like best?

The most important thing about this tool is its versatility since it can be a powerful tool for the monitor of any platform. In a single tool allows the monitoring of IT and TELCO. It allows to project events in real time and to graph them.

What do you dislike?

The only point to improve would be the graphics. Having more options that visually is more pleasant for the end user serial ideal.

"Extended very strong product"

What do you like best?

In a production environment, you can write collection procedures, can be better for your service. Distributed cluster, or push data acquisition is a very good way. The presentation is very friendly and chart, highly integrated, eliminating a lot of their deployment time.

What do you dislike?

Mysql database data, is not very good, the amount of data acquisition for large, not very friendly, need to continuously optimized, in the actual use of the process also found a problem, drawing if more than 24 hours, found that draw the chart in fact is not very accurate, the I caused great distress, hope later versions can be improved.

Recommendations to others considering the product

yes

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

Acquisition of the health of our business data, let our staff direct light look at the data, you can see the running of the business, deployed personnel from the point of view, saving a lot of manpower resources, and we can take the initiative to identify problems, the problems before they occur can prevent and solve these problems.

"Zabbix system monitoring"

What do you like best?

Zabbix is a monitoring system with exceptional power, for noobs users once downloaded is ready to play, for advanced users have the flexibility to be adapted quickly to your needs, one of best features is that Zabbix allows me to receive timely through reporting system any incidents that threaten the key points of our data center via SMS and Mail, has allowed us to know the weaknesses of our data center as well as improve our SLA.

I have tried many other monitoring products such like Zenoss OS, Hyperic OS, Foolight Dell, Cisco UCS, HP SiteScope, and the best cost / benefit relation and easy use actually only Zabbix can offer.

What do you dislike?

1.- I'm dislike of Zabbix is you google api location, is to hard to programming and adapt it, create logical diagrams in zabbix is a manual task, in this field it has much to learn from other systems such as Zenoss, who automatically and only with initial load of devices may draw it.

2-. Create logical diagrams in Zabbix is so hard and manual task, in this field it has much to learn from other systems such as Zenoss, who automatically and only with the initial loading of devices can draw a basic but powerfull logical diagram.

3.- Autodiscovery devices using templates is to hard for noobs people too, neverthless auto-discovery properly set up, it can speed up of Zabbix.

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

1.- Election software develop work to fast, Zabbix help us monitoring pre-production problems detection with based RDBMS software.

2.- Actually try to build templates for hardware monitoring, EMC SAN VNX5300 and EMC SAN VNX5700 monitoring via SNMP.

3.- I working on integrate some VMware Products via API.

One of the most flexible tools for monitoring - allows to do your own scripting so you can do custom monitoring which is tailored to your application and your needs. It also allows to perform actions automatically to solve problems - e.g., restart application, etc.

What do you dislike?

UI navigation is a bit of a mess; it would have been easier if some simple triggers were predefined

"Zabbix review"

What do you like best?

1) Discovery of network, disc, filesystems, memory, perfomance metrics

(in the fact you install their zabbix client on the computer and it auto fills it on the control panel)

System Logs collection (which I was looking for in the change the last couple weeks).

Define your screens of what you want to view, then it has a slide show portion that you can make several screens and it will rotate through on a web page.

What do you dislike?

it won't automagically figure out what to monitor, when to alert you and etc - you will have to think about what metrics you are interested in and configure them upfront;

debugging leaves something to be desired. although with such a small environment help options like forum, irc channel etc should suffice easily.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Zabbix has a web configuration, while Nagios uses text files. While web configuration seems nice, it is a pain to automate like using Chef or Puppet.

Zabbix has graphs and stats collection via SNMP or custom agent. Nagios don't. Even so, you must think if you are really looking for graphing support or just a robust monitoring system to tell you if something goes down.

Zabbix is resource hungry. It uses a DB to store all the stats and configuration and this can grow exponentially depending on the number of hosts you are monitoring. Nagios works very fast and normally will not require the ammount of resources that Zabbix does. You can tune zabbix, of course, but it's more work to do.

Its a great tool to use for server monitoring

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

I am monitoring inhouse servers, from server resources to JMX applications.

zabbix can monitor using methods like snmp, simple network checks (is a port open ?), and it also has native agent for many platforms. as the agent is written in c, it has extremely small footprint (as opposed to bunch of interpreted scripts...). you can easily combine different checks on a single monitored host. note that you are not limited to monitoring servers, you can also add network devices and other things.

"Good Cross-platform OpenSource Monitoring System"

What do you like best?

All primary operating systems supported

Supports snmp, wmi, and agent based monitors

Supports monitor elements set by custom scripts

Supports notification of alarms by custom scripts

Supports proxy servers that relay traffic to the primary server (works really well for multiple site support)

Has a marketplace for templates for specific devices

Has an API

Has a discovery protocol that runs on a periodic basis.

What do you dislike?

The python modules for their API needs additional documentation.

The UI is a little dated.

Their variable arguments for their notification scripts needs a few more options.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Zabbix is a good option for server monitoring. If you run into problems contact the Zabbix IRC channel.

"Common monitoring tools"

What do you like best?

Zabbix is one of my favorite monitoring tools, easy to use, easy to customize and have great supports and development.

You can monitor any you want to monitor, you just write a small script and Zabbix will monitor it for you. For example, you can monitor how many users log in on your system by typing "who", just write bash script contain "who" as the external script and modify the value on Zabbix and Zabbix will do monitor.

What do you dislike?

Start from zabbix 2.4 you cannot clustering zabbix again, that make a problem when you have to monitor many devices. Using zabbix proxy is not enough, so you must doing some trick to balancing your zabbix servers.

What do you dislike?

When the system monitored is large, such as more than 500, it's performance is bad, even though is has cluster solution, it can not satisfy production environment requirement. Compared with Time Series database such as influxdb, zabbix still use mysql for data store.

"Fairly Intuituive and Fully Customize-able"

What do you like best?

Zabbix provides incredibly flexible reporting and monitoring views on a huge number of metrics. While not the most intuitive option, the ability to scrutinize your environment from many different perspectives outweighs the time consumed to set it up.

What do you dislike?

Not intuitive at all to set up, as I mentioned before it this is hugely outweighed by the flexibility of the product. The setup of this product is not to be taken lightly though, as it's time consuming and requires systems and networking experience.
