One of the promises of Zabbix is an ability to monitor pretty much anything. That is possible using various extending capabilities on the Zabbix server, binary agent and elsewhere. Maybe we can monitor some aspects of Zabbix community using Zabbix itself?
In the past, quite often Zabbix users have been puzzled regarding some server tuning parameters – for example, how many pollers do they need? It was usually determined based on experience, testing and a bit of guesstimating. No more fuzzy attempts – get hard facts with Zabbix 1.8.5.

Zabbix Conference 2011 postponed to Autumn 2011…
We’ve been doing all our best to organise the conference closer to Zabbix birthday, April 7. Now it looks very much that we do not have enough time to make it happen. There are a number of reasons, and probably number one is our current hard work on Zabbix 2.0, which takes all our time and resources.
So, a few days ago I realised that the best solution would be to postpone the conference, focus on Zabbix 2.0 and have more time for preparation in a nice and calm atmosphere, hopefully.
Anyway the decision was made. Zabbix Conference 2011 was postponed to Autumn 2011, no precise date is set yet. Please stay tuned for further announcements.
On behalf of Zabbix Team I apologise for any inconvenience.
If you have visited Zabbix webpage recently, you already know that Zabbix conference and 10 year anniversary celebration dates have been confirmed. A shiny banner would have informed you about them.
UPDATE: conference postponed.
There are many browsers in the world. Some better, some worse, some unusable. But some are just legendary. Probably no other browser version has ever been written and spoken about as much as one some of Zabbix users might have also heard about.
With all the snow outside, Zabbix developers have been busy indoors, working on neat features for Zabbix 2.0. While many of those are low level and don’t result in visually pleasing screenshots, just today a significant change was merged to cutting edge development branch – trunk.
Just a couple of pictures of what’s happening at the home of Zabbix. Short version – winter is here. Continue reading “It’s Winter in Zabbixland”
The development of a monitoring solution, now called Zabbix, started way back in 1999. From the functional perspective, Zabbix is much more capable now than it was 11 years ago. However, is it possible that some of this functionality is still backed by code from those ancient times? How did the source code change over the years? In this article, we will take a look at how the software developed over time source code-wise.
Zabbix has built-in web monitoring, which provides scenario support – user workflow emulation on the webpage. There are also some neat predefined graphs on the scenario level. Dedicated Zabbix translator zalex_ua has shared some of these predefined graphs… from scenario with 20 steps.
