1 Goals

There are several goals of the distributed monitoring:

  • Get control of whole monitoring from a single or several locations

Zabbix administrator may control configuration of all Nodes from a single Zabbix WEB front-end.

  • Hierarchical monitoring

This is for monitoring of complex multi-level environments.

  • Monitor large complex environments

This is especially useful when monitoring several geographical locations.

  • Offload the overhead from busy Zabbix server

Monitoring thousands of hosts using single Zabbix server? This may be for you!
