Zabbix supports sending Jabber messages.

发送通知时,Zabbix首先尝试查找Jabber SRV记录,如果失败,则会使用该域的地址记录。在Jabber SRV记录中,选择具有最高优先级和最大权重的记录。 如果失败,则不会尝试其它记录。

When sending notifications, Zabbix tries to look up the Jabber SRV record first, and if that fails, it uses an address record for that domain. Among Jabber SRV records, the one with the highest priority and maximum weight is chosen. If it fails, other records are not tried.
