2 Overview

Zabbix provides effective and very flexible WEB monitoring functionality. The module periodically executes WEB scenarios and keeps collected data in the database. The data is automatically used for graphs, triggers and notifications.

The following information is collected per each step of WEB scenario:

  • Response time
  • Download speed per second
  • Response code

Zabbix also checks if a retrieved HTML page contains a pre-defined string.

Zabbix WEB monitoring supports both HTTP and HTTPS.

When running a web scenario, Zabbix always follows redirects.

To use HTTP proxy, set environment variable http_proxy for Zabbix server user. For example, //http_proxy=http:%%//%%proxy_ip:proxy_port//.
