Typical situations when You need Development Services

What You Get

  • Desired functionality supported in Zabbix out of the box
  • Direct communication with Zabbix developers ensuring you get the optimal feature execution
  • Possibility to get complex functionality for partial cost in terms of co-sponsoring

Your Benefits

  • Peace of mind that the feature was developed in a secure environment and was tested by the Zabbix team (no malicious code etc)
  • Possibility to impact the roadmap and feature specifications
  • No more need for custom patches, meaning zero maintenance of new functionality
  • Supporting the open source initiative


The price for Development Services depends on the complexity of requested feature and the level of integration with existing Zabbix functionality. When evaluating the cost of specific development, Zabbix takes into consideration the added value that this implementation can bring to other Zabbix users.

Cost of development is calculated with a minimum billing period of 1 day and generally varies from €700 and up to €1,200.

Feature Description Required Amount Status
Agent and Proxy for Android devices

Current low cost devices are unique to provide new services at very attractive HW cost. More and more companies are using low cost Android devices like TVBox or similar to run applications or perform tasks that do not require expensive hardware. This project is about creating a Zabbix agent and Zabbix proxy that would run on Android devices, both rooted or not.

Encryption of All Communications

Zabbix Monitoring Solution is all about communicating data. Zabbix server, proxies, and agents constantly exchange data with monitored devices and between each other. While in most cases it is absolutely fine to do it using open communication protocols, some installations and organisational policies require to transmit information in secure way. This feature will allow to manage how data is exchanged between Zabbix components and monitored devices - in secure or non-secure way.
