Advanced Zabbix Data Pre-processing

The course will cover how to extract and transform information from different sources using Zabbix built-in functionality - without using external tools or scripts. The course is entirely based on possibilities offered by Zabbix 6.0 frontend; the command line would not be accessed at all. Every preprocessing step will be explained in detail with examples, and almost all of them will have practical tasks.

The course is designed for users with basic Zabbix knowledge who wants to understand Zabbix preprocessing options on an expert level. It does not require any existing Zabbix certification.
