Collect SNMP metrics or deploy a Zabbix agent to monitor a variety of network metrics. Apply the appropriate template on your network monitoring endpoint and start collecting network metrics, including:
Incoming and outgoing traffic
Total bandwidth usage
Packet loss and interface error rates
Number of TCP connections
Interface speed and status
Many other SNMP metrics
Zabbix supports SNMP versions v1, v2c, and v3 and SNMP trap collection, enabling compatibility with legacy and modern devices.
Let Zabbix poll your device or receive traps and monitor your network device health.
Device availability and uptime
CPU and memory statistics
Power supply status
Define flexible problem thresholds and receive alerts whenever an issue is detected in your network infrastructure.
React to unexpected network spikes, errors, packet loss, or ping loss
Analyze long-term bandwidth usage trends
Suppress alerts while performing device maintenance or upgrades
Define dependencies between alerts to reduce noise and receive root-cause notifications
Detect and dynamically adjust expected network metric baseline values
Dynamically detect anomalous network behavior
Create an escalation logic based on the severity of detected network problems
Escalate alerts across users or departments
Create immediate or delayed notification workflows
Define working hours for each alerting channel and user
Let Zabbix automatically remediate detected problems by executing remote commands and scripts
Collect network information from different data sources and use Zabbix to keep your data consistent, no matter the source of information.
Validate collected network metrics and detect any unexpected error messages
Transform counter data to per-second values
Normalize collected network metrics
Extract metrics from structured JSON and XML data
Collecting your network metrics is just the first step. Use the Zabbix aggregation function to aggregate collected values across a time period and gain new insights about your network infrastructure.
Aggregate the collected traffic and collect minimum, maximum, and average values across a time period
Calculate the sum traffic per each tenant or between multiple network interfaces
Count the number of error or warning messages on your devices across a time period
Discover your interfaces, power supplies, CPU cores, fans, and any other resource types by utilizing Zabbix low-level discovery features:
Discover any resource type by utilizing any Zabbix data collection method
Zabbix will automatically detect whether any resource has been added, removed, or changed
Utilize low-level discovery filters and discover only the required resources
Create dynamic problem thresholds for different resource types (e.g. trunk port or uplink port)
Automatically discover your network devices and assign the appropriate monitoring template.
Scan a network range and receive notifications when a new device is discovered
Automatically onboard and offboard your devices
React to an endpoint being reachable on a particular port or by using a specific protocol
Automatically group the discovered hosts
Zabbix comes pre-packaged
with over 300 templates for the most popular network hardware vendors.
Just select the appropriate template and assign it on your host to start monitoring your network.
