Zabbix is an enterprise open source Information Technology monitoring solution. It is a software technology used to monitor numerous parameters of 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 supports both polling and trapping. All Zabbix reports and statistics, as well as configuration parameters, are accessed through a web-based frontend. A web-based frontend ensures that the status of your network and the health of your servers can be assessed from any location. Properly configured, Zabbix can play an important role in monitoring IT infrastructure. This is equally true for small organisations with a few servers and for large companies with a multitude of servers.

Getting Started

We recommend contacting the IT staff in your department as the first step. If you do not have IT staff or don't know who your IT staff are, open a support request for Hosting Services by contacting Technology Help.
