Monitor any possible performance metrics and incidents in your network:
- Network bandwidth usage
- Packet loss rate
- Interface errorrate
- High CPU or memory utilization
- Number of tcp connections is anomaly high for this day of the week
- Aggregate throughput of core routers is low
- Link is down
- System status is in warning/critical state
- Device temperature is too high / too low
- Power supply is in critical state
- Free disk space is low
- Fan is in critical state
- No SNMP data collection
- New device 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 network-related metrics and incidents, monitored by Zabbix out of the box. See the full list in template descriptions. You can extend/customize 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 vendors' devices:
Out-of-the-box templates come with preconfigured items, triggers, graphs, applications, screens, low-level discovery rules, web scenarios, etc.
