By day, I am a monitoring technical lead in a global cyber security company. By night, I monitor my home with Zabbix and Grafana in very creative ways. But what has Zabbix to do with Blender 3D software or virtual reality? Read on.
By day, I monitor a global cyber security company for a living. By night, I monitor my home with Zabbix and Grafana. In this weekly blog series, I’m sharing my weird experiments and new ideas on how to utilize monitoring.
Welcome to my weekly blog about how I monitor my home with Zabbix. Like Batman, I have a casual day job as a monitoring tech lead, and by night I tinker around with my home Zabbix. (Except that Batman does not do monitoring, or who knows.)
In my previous blog post, I wrote about how I monitor my home with Zabbix. This week, I am showing how I utilize Grafana to visualize the data collected by Zabbix and what are my plans to further improve all this.
For those of you who know me, this should not come as a surprise: I absolutely love Zabbix. It gives me the ultimate freedom to monitor whatever I need to monitor and is flexible enough to be able to monitor absolutely everything you can imagine. It’s free, it’s open-source, and scales to whatever needs you might have.
