Mastering Zabbix helps users make both strategic and practical decisions about the Zabbix monitoring system so that it fits their environment and monitoring needs like a glove. From choosing the correct size and configuration to what users should actually monitor, including the exportation and integration of their data with other systems, this book won't leave readers with any doubts about the crucial role of a well configured monitoring system.

Mastering Zabbix teaches readers how to choose the ideal database backend, monitor appliances that only talk SNMP and application servers that talk JMX, and organize their charts and maps in screens that can be visualized on big screens. It shows readers how to leverage Zabbix's discovery capabilities to track their ever-changing environment, and build complex intelligent alarms that won't distract users with trivial problems. Readers will also learn to expand Zabbix's capabilities through its scripting facilities, protocols, and powerful API.
