Quotes From Members
We asked business professionals to review the solutions they use.
Here are some excerpts of what they said:
Pros
"The best feature is that it is very relatable, stable, and scalable. The logger is a part of the software, but it's not the most important point of it.""The API makes it pretty easy to integrate with any system."

"SNMP monitoring, source discovery, and alert triggering are most valuable.""The solution's design has recently changed and it is visually pleasing with more color, for example, there is blue, black, and white.""The product is very stable.""The flexibility of this solution is amazing.""It meets my organizational needs. It's pretty easy to use.""It's a very reliable platform and we've never had any issues regarding the scalability or the stability of Zabbix.""I like being able to use proxy servers for different locations. The agents are pretty cool. They're easy to roll out. The standard out-of-the-box templates are also pretty easy to use. The integration with other learning products is also good. I have, in the past, used Slack, but we've integrated it with Microsoft Teams. We also use it for SMS with a service called Redcoat. It is very flexible. It does what I need it to do, and my manager is very happy because it doesn't cost anything. We are nearing 4,000 hosts inside Zabbix, and we've got another 6,000 access points to add to it. We've thrown everything at it, and it has managed to keep going. I am very impressed with the tool, and I'd shake their hand very hard if I got to say the compliments to the Zabbix team. They keep improving it and doing refreshes, which is one good thing about it. There is also online information as well as books that you can purchase if you're willing to read enough. There is a lot to pick up, but it is a pretty complete solution.""The solution is open-source, easy to manage, and user-friendly making it easy for anyone to use."

Cons
"They need to improve the dashboard interface.""The user interface is not what we are used to these days, and should be improved."

More OP5 Monitor Cons →

"There are some features of Zabbix that are not good for reporting. The DX Spectrum solution has better reporting.""Zabbix does not draw automatic mapping of the network, this is something they should add in the future. There is a lot of effort that is involved in tailoring some of the settings which could be made easier.""The user interface could be a bit better. They could update it a bit.""In terms of user-friendliness, large maps could be more interactive. We should be able to click on some areas and move some objects. It would make it simpler to see things while analyzing some dedicated parameters.""Documentation terminology could be improved.""The documentation gets a bit messy between versions and is not too detailed, which is a bit painful for first-timers, especially when they run into issues.""The performance reporting could be improved.""In an upcoming release, there should be automated reports which we are currently doing manually. For example, if we collect a report file every day and want to send it to a moderator for review. We are expecting this feature to come out soon but it would be valuable to have now."

    Faycal N., CEO/Founder at Zen Networks, praises the product, mentioning, “Its overall flexibility is most valuable. When our customers have some custom applications that are not necessarily covered by the community or a standard monitoring tool, we use Zabbix to build our own modules with our own templates. This feature has been useful in using Zabbix for infrastructure and IT monitoring. It has also been useful for industrial equipment monitoring. Zabbix is very lightweight. It is efficient in terms of performance because it doesn't use a lot of resources."
