What Is Zabbix?

Zabbix is an open-source client-server monitoring solution that is designed for use by organizations of all sizes. The Zabbix agent monitors the status of system resources through deployment on end systems.

The Zabbix monitoring platform makes it easy to track a whole infrastructure, from a single application process to a whole application and database. As far as monitoring enterprise class hardware is concerned, Zabbix is just as good.

Zabbix's main strength is the ability to monitor custom parameters unavailable via standard monitoring methods based on SNMP. Agent-based monitoring gives you complete control over anything happening on the end node. Zabbix also supports a large variety of other monitoring methods, including SNMP traps and GETs, WMI, SSH, JMX, ODBC, and others. It is capable of monitoring large environments using minimal resources.
