Zabbix - Enterprise class server monitoring solution

You will find many other solution for server monitoring like Bandwidthd and Trisul in my older posts. Today I'd like to share another alternative for server monitoring solution with more feature on it called Zabbix. While other focus on Bandwidth monitoring, zabbix come with numerous parameters of network, the health and server integrity monitoring.


ZABBIX is software that monitors numerous parameters of a network and the health and integrity of servers. ZABBIX uses a flexible notification mechanism that allows users to configure e-mail based alerts for virtually any event. This allows a fast reaction to server problems. ZABBIX offers excellent reporting and data visualisation features based on the stored data. This makes ZABBIX ideal for capacity planning (Zabbix Manual).


Zabbix support for both polling and trapping mechanisms. It's more easy with zabbix because it can auto-discovery of servers and network devices and distributed monitoring centralized on Web administration. You can set to receive notification of predefined events of your server using email. For more information please visit the official website of Zabbix here.
