Rihards Olups has over 10 years of experience in information technology. He has had a chance to work with various systems, and most of his time has been spent with open source solutions. His first exposure to Zabbix, one of the leading open source enterprise-class monitoring solutions, was with the first public releases more than nine years ago, which has allowed him to gain practical knowledge on the technology as it has developed over the years. Previously employed by a government agency, Rihards was mostly involved in open source software deployments ranging from server- to desktop-grade software, with a big emphasis on Zabbix. More recently, he has joined Zabbix SIA, the company behind the software that this book is about, which has allowed him to gain even more experience with the subject.
