Monitoring how busy Zabbix processes are

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 postponed to Autumn 2011

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.

On behalf of Zabbix Team I apologise for any inconvenience.
