In this post, we will talk about the low-level discovery of Kafka connectors and tasks. When a Kafka task fails, a trigger is fired, which starts a remote command to restart the failed Kafka task. Of course, with the necessary logging around it.
In this blog post, we will talk about aggregating different kinds of devices that are disconnected from the general network. Finding out how many devices per kind are “down” right now. This can be useful in the Internet Service Provider type of situation.
Most Zabbix users use proxies, and those running medium to large instances might have encountered some performance issues. From this post and the video, you will learn more about the most common troubleshooting steps to resolve any proxy issues and to detect them as sometimes you might be unaware of an ongoing issue, as well as basic performance tuning to prevent such issues in the future.
From this post and the video, you’ll learn about the possibilities of database monitoring using out-of-the-box Zabbix functionality without having to install additional tools, additional applications, or additional software that might not be allowed by your company.
In this post and the video, you will learn about a proper approach to getting the most out of Zabbix and optimizing the underlying MySQL Database configuration to improve performance while working with a database-intensive application such as Zabbix.
The low-level discovery was introduced in Zabbix 2.0 and still belongs to one of the all-time favorites. Before LLD was available, adding items was all manual work. For example adding new disks, new interfaces, network ports on switches and everything else was all manual labor. And then LLD came around and suddenly we were able to ‘discover’ entities, and based on those discovered entities we can add new items, triggers, and such automatically.
PostgresSQL is one of the supported database engines that Zabbix uses to store all configuration data and history. The popularity of Postgres makes it a very sought-after Database engine for Zabbix. TimescaleDB is a great extension to Postgres that empowers Zabbix with native partitioning functionality and data compression, which saves a lot of disk space for our users.
Depending on your requirements, monitoring SNMP metrics can turn into quite a troublesome task. What if no out-of-the-box templates are available for my device? How can I find OID’s for my metrics and test them? What If I wish to avoid any kind of performance impact on my SNMP device during the testing period?
Zabbix needs to be secure as Zabbix configuration contains credentials, which are used to access all other systems, and the data collected from those systems may contain very sensitive information. In addition, Zabbix can execute remote commands on your production servers.
