Server Monitoring


Zabbix has a rich set of features to enable users to monitor more than just hosts, offering great flexibility to administrators when it comes to choosing the most suitable option for each situation.

Monitor any possible server performance metrics and incidents:

Server 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
Server 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 out-of-the-box templates to monitor all popular servers & OS:


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
