The reporting function is excellent with beautiful graphics that show you what you need to know. There are more than enough options for notifications with email, SMS, Teams to mention a few.

Once this Software is installed, and configured correctly, it works as it should. Great for pro-active monitoring.

There still small problem is some vendor not provide the snmp template to zabbix, so need to discuss with zabbix community.

Lack of automated backend processing to keep the database tuned to peak performance.

Zabbix Best Network Monitoring for Enterprise Network

Reviewed 13 days ago

previously we were using cacti, but its very mess related to the pooling, and crontab sometime work sometime not, sometime system/server down 10min but cacti still not alert, finally we find the solution to use the zabbix monitoring, we solved all these problem, even the less storage on server, high io in server, server temperature, router temperature zabbix can report very well. i recommend go with zabbix server save your time, you implement one time use forever, until now i use more than 3 years since 2017.

Pros

zabbix is not the same other platform, its elastic of graph can generate graph very well. zabbix support both protocol agent and snmp protocol that easy to integrated for all product including server. zabbix support the alert notification that is perfect and the best notification is integrated with telegram, so each time there have alert it sent to telegram, system administrator/network engineer just sit and look at the telegram chat only. networking map can draw the map of system and network devices that connect to each other, and it give the accurate information related to traffic bandwidth, cpu process very well.

Cons

there still small problem is some vendor not provide the snmp template to zabbix, so need to discuss with zabbix community.
