13 Screens and Slide Shows

Zabbix screens allow grouping of various information for quick access and display on one screen. An easy-to-use screen builder makes creating screens easy and intuitive.

A screen is a table which may contain the following elements in each cell:

  • simple graphs
  • user-defined graphs
  • maps
  • other screens
  • plain text information
  • server information (overview)
  • trigger information (overview)
  • data overview
  • clock
  • history of events
  • history of actions
  • URL (data taken from other location)

The number of elements per screen is unlimited.

You can configure screens in Configuration → Screens and view them in Monitoring → Screens as well as include your favourite screens in the favourites section of Monitoring → Dashboard.

If graph height is set as less than 120 pixels, no trigger will be displayed in the legend.

A slide show is a series of screens, which will be automatically rotated according to configured update intervals.

You can configure slide shows in Configuration → Slides.
