Video Description

Isn't it embarrassing when your customers complain about your IT infrastructure? A well-managed Zabbix server informs you about any problems before they lead to noticeable outages. You can rely on Zabbix to inform the right contact about getting the issue fixed.

"Zabbix Network Monitoring Essentials" is an extensive video course that gives a complete introduction into the key features of the enterprise-grade Zabbix monitoring software. Learn how to set up your own monitoring server and leverage many useful features that are hidden in the documentation. The course starts by showing you a fresh installation of the Zabbix server. All relevant functionality will be explained step by step while going through the web interface.

First you'll learn how to gather information from your servers by using the Zabbix agent. You'll then make use of triggers to define which conditions depict actual problems and should raise an alert. Additionally you'll learn how to visualize the items and triggers in screens and maps.

By the end of the course you will have set up and learnt to manage a Zabbix server like a pro.

Style and Approach

Packt video courses are designed to cover the breadth of the topic in short, hands-on, task-based videos. Each course is divided into short manageable sections, so you can watch the whole thing or jump to the bit you need. The focus is on practical instructions and screencasts showing you how to get the job done.

A practical video course with step-by-step instructions and an example-driven approach for setting up and monitoring your network using Zabbix.
