We continue to introduce you to the speakers of Zabbix Summit Online 2021. Our next guest is Brian van Baekel – a known Zabbix evangelist and trainer who has educated hundreds of students on all the nuances of working with our monitoring system.
In this blog post, we would like to show you a new theme that might seem a little familiar to you. Let’s take a little nostalgic trip down memory lane and take a look at this special frontend theme for Zabbix 5.4 reminiscent of Zabbix 1.8.
Zabbix Agent 2 enables our users to monitor a whole set of new systems with minimal configuration required on the monitored systems. Forget about writing custom monitoring scripts, deploying additional packages, or configuring ODBC. A great use-case for Zabbix Agent 2 is monitoring one of the most popular NoSQL DB backends – MongoDB. Below, you can read a detailed description and step-by-step guide through the use case or refer to the video available here.
The ability to define and execute scripts on different Zabbix components in different scenarios can be extremely powerful. There are many different use cases where we can execute these scripts – to remediate an issue, forward our alerts to an external system, and much more. In this post, we will cover one of the lesser-known use cases – creating a control panel of sorts in which we can execute different scripts directly from our frontend.
In September 2020, Zabbix started operations from its office in Latin America, located in Brazil, in the city of Porto Alegre, state capital of Rio Grande do Sul. Since then, the office has strengthened its relationship with the community as a whole, in addition to expanding the network of companies that officially join the Zabbix Partnership Program.
Did you know that Zabbix has an out-of-the-box template for collecting Oracle database metrics? With this template, we can collect data like database, tablespace, ASM, and many other metrics agentlessly, by using ODBC. This blog post will guide you on how to set up ODBC monitoring for Oracle 11.2, 12.1, 18.5, or 19.2 database servers. This post can serve as the perfect set of guidelines for deploying Oracle database monitoring in your environment.
This year’s Zabbix Summit 2021 will take place online on October 21. We decided to introduce you to the speakers and reveal some of the topics that will be covered during the event. Our first interviewee will be Jacob Robinson, who is speaking at this year’s Zabbix summit for the first time.
In this blog post, you will learn how to set up manual ticket creation through the use of Zabbix frontend scripts. We will use Jira Service Desk as an example, but this guide should work for any type of service desk or help desk system, as we can apply this technique for other systems in a similar fashion.
Overrides is an often overlooked feature of Low-level discovery that makes the discovery of different entities in your environment so much more flexible. In this blog post, we will take a look at how overrides work and how we can use them to extend our Low-level discovery rules with additional logic.
