Database Monitoring


Zabbix has a rich set of features to enable users to monitor database performance, availability, configuration changes.

Monitor any possible database performance metrics and incidents:

Database performance
  • High CPU or memory utilization
  • Network bandwidth usage
  • Packet loss rate
  • Interface error rate
  • Number of tcp connections is anomaly high for this day of the week
  • Aggregate throughput of core routers is low
Database engine availability
  • Free disk space is low
  • System status is in warning/critical state
  • Device temperature is too high / too low
  • Power supply is in critical state
  • Fan is in critical state
  • No SNMP data collection
  • Network connection is down
Configuration changes
  • New components added or removed
  • Network module is added, removed or replaced
  • Firmware has been upgraded
  • Device serial number has changed
  • Interface has changed to lower speed or half-duplex mode

This is a sample list of server-related metrics and incidents, monitored by Zabbix out of the box. See the full list in template descriptions. You can extend/change the scope of monitored objects by adding new items, writing custom data collection scripts, building custom templates, etc.


Use templates to monitor all popular database engines:


Out-of-the-box templates come with preconfigured items, triggers, graphs, applications, screens, low-level discovery rules, web scenarios, etc.

Zabbix features and benefits



Various data collection methods and protocols
Flexible and extendable data gathering
  • Calculated and aggregated metrics. For example: sum of traffic between two ports on a network switch.
  • Preprocess collected data. For example: use regexp to extract some specific metric from legacy device.
Autodiscovery
Templating
  • Start to monitor all metrics instantly by using out-of-the-box templates
  • Clone and mass-update thousands of similar network devices using device configuration templates
Flexible trigger expressions
  • Create complex logical expressions regarding monitored statistics of network devices
  • Avoid false positives by defining hysteresis
Trigger dependencies
  • Define multi-level dependencies between related network nodes. Detect root cause failures.
Proactive network monitoring
  • Predict network downtimes
  • Predict trends of bandwidth usage
  • Detect anomalies in network load
Problem severity levels
  • Define trigger severity levels to help concentrate on most important problems in case of multiple network issues.
Flexible notifications
  • Multiple delivery methods: email, sms, jabber, custom scripts or messenger
  • Customize message content based on receipient
Remote command execution
Event correlation
Customized escalation scenarios
Integration with 3rd party software
  • Helpdesks, ticketing systems
  • Configuration management systems
  • Messengers, mobile applications
Task automation

Zabbix proxy
  • Monitor remote servers even behind the firewalls
  • Run remote commands behind firewalls
Optimized for high performance
  • Scale endless by
  • Scale by offloading central server
High Availability
  • Buffer monitoring data even if Zabbix server is not available
  • Build redundant monitoring solution using Zabbix components. See example.
Security and authentication
  • Encrypt all monitoring traffic between Zabbix and your network devices
  • Use LDAP authentication and flexible user permissions
