Zabbix Features for Monitoring


Monitoring Metric Collection

Zabbix can collect monitoring metrics from any type of IT infrastructure. Zabbix supports multiple mechanisms for collecting the performance metrics – be it Agent-Based or Agent-Less methods. You can also write your own custom scripts for collecting metrics from your applications and database.


Zabbix can detect the problem states within the incoming metric flow automatically, sparing your time and effort.

  • Highly flexible definition options
  • Separate problem conditions and resolution conditions
  • Multiple severity levels
  • Root cause analysis
  • Anomaly detection
  • Trend Prediction

 Problem Detection



Notification and Remediation


Be notified in case of any issues and inform responsible persons about occurred events using many different channels and options:

  • Send messages
  • Let Zabbix fix issues automatically
  • Escalate problems according to flexible user-defined Service Levels
  • Customize messages based on recipient's role
  • Customize messages with runtime and inventory information

Save yourself from thousands of repetitive notifications and focus on root causes of a problem with Zabbix Event Correlation System


Protect your data on all levels

  • Strong encryption between all Zabbix components
  • Multiple authentication methods: Open LDAP, Active Directory
  • Flexible user permission schema
  • Zabbix code is open for security audit

Effortless Deployment

Save your time by using out-of-the-box templates

  • Install Zabbix in minutes
  • Use out-of-the-box templates for most of the popular platforms
  • Build custom templates

  • Apply for Template building service from Zabbix team
  • Monitor thousands of similar devices by using configuration templates


Automate monitoring of large, dynamic environments

  • Take automatic actions upon adding/removing/changing elements.
  • Network discovery: periodically scans network and discovers device type, IP, status, uptime/downtime, etc, and takes predefined actions.
  • Low-level discovery: automatically creates items, triggers, and graphs for different elements on a device.
  • Auto-registration of active agent: automatically starts monitoring new equipment with the Zabbix agent.

Auto Discovery





The native web interface provides multiple ways of presenting a visual overview of your IT environment:

  • Widget-based dashboards
  • Graphs
  • Network maps
  • Slideshows
  • Drill-down reports


Scale without limits

Security Head, IT

Fellowes Inc, USA



Altnix was an instrumental partner in two phases of our Security ISO needs. The first being a comprehensive developed Service/Ticketing system for our global offices. The second being that of an Asset Management tool that ties all assets into our Ticketing systems to close a gap that we had in that category. They are strong partners in working towards a viable solution for our needs



The Altnix team was very easy to work with and resolved our needs in a timely manner.  Working with Altnix, allowed us to focus on our core business while they handled the technical components to help streamline our business tools.  We have found a strategic partner in Altnix
