Default Connecting two Zabbix servers

Hi to all. I am totally new in Zabbix and generally monitoring systems. Can you please help me.

Is it possible to connect two zabbix servers like in scheme in attachment? If it is, can you please point me where to find an implementation solution.

Thank you

Regards

Mario

Hello Everyone!
I have similar task but in my case connection between Location 1 and Location 2 is not permament. My Location 2 is separated network with possibility to connect to the Intenet/VPN periodically (eg. scheduled).

This setup is for some industrial networks with local Zabbix servers that are maintained externally. We would like to get diagnostics from multiple sites, but with access to standard Zabbix eperience locally in sites.

What would be suggested solution for such setup?

Thanks for the help!

Ideas only... having intermittent network connection gives you lots of snowflake (unique) concerns.

You could periodically send copies your remote zabbix DB's to a central location. You can access a zabbix DB from a frontend without a live zabbix server in the mix. Those db's could share a db server, the frontends could share a http stack with some config tweaks.

I think Grafana could then define each db/frontend as a data source.

You could use the API to get info out of each instance. For example, if you look at the pyzabbix api, you see calls like zapi.host.get. zapi is just an object, you can replace zapi with z1, repeat with z2-n and talk to multiple zabbix web frontends at the same time. (I do this to robo copy config items between a main and fall-back zabbix) This method works, but makes my head hurt actually writing the code.
