How to use Remote command functionality in Zabbix and what to keep in mind. Real life scenario of pro active monitoring of Windows services, to automatically start services that were stopped for any reason. And then use escalation support to notify people, if remote command did not help.
Zabbix comes with an impressive list of supported metrics for virtually all platforms. It covers the monitoring of performance and availability of OS including CPU, memory, network, processes, files, kernel parameters and more. Zabbix also performs agent-less checks for well-known services such as FTP, SSH, IMAP, POP3, HTTP, TCP, etc.
Zabbix agent currently supports only one server in active mode – the first host from the Server configuration parameter is used. While for most users that is enough, some installations require a more advanced approach with the agent being able to report to multiple servers in the active mode.
