Use Cases and Deployment Scope

In the beginning, we started using Zabbix in a small deployment, running the Linux box, deployed as a docker container. As we got familiar with the infrastructure, we decided to start using to basically monitor some servers. As we got confident, we started to monitor all the servers on-premise and some servers on a private cloud and finally, we included the network assets. Currently, it's been used just by our IT department and our main goal is to have a tool capable to monitor and early detect infrastructure issues to act as quick as possible.

Use Cases and Deployment Scope

As an open-source monitoring solution, Zabbix is our preferred choice. Our company has been using it since 2017 to monitor all infrastructure. The overview we get from it is fabulous. It's immediate and it provides very clear information on many levels depending on what you want to see based on user roles and permissions. You can configure absolutely everything you can image with it.

Use Cases and Deployment Scope

Zabbix is currently one of our main monitoring applications (next to Munin). It is used to monitor the state of hardware (temperatures, hardware-errors), the state of the operating system (running, load, memory usage, etc.) and the state of services (running, network-connections, load, etc.). Additionally, some services can report on further metrics, e.g. if files are outdated or show unreasonable behavior. Through the trigger-framework, we can start automated mitigation, as well as manually inspect the issue.

Use Cases and Deployment Scope

Zabbix is primarily being used to monitor servers and services running on them, though it is starting to be used also to monitor network components as well. Secondarily, it is being used as a Synthetic User Monitor for web applications.

Use Cases and Deployment Scope

While working at the Comcast headquarters as a Linux Engineer on their Splunk team, I set up Zabbix to monitor approximately one-thousand (1,000) physical servers running Splunk. It allowed us deeper insight into the use and performance of Splunk throughout our infrastructure. It also gave us the ability to prevent small problems (such as hard drive failures) from growing unchecked and leading to serious outages.

Use Cases and Deployment Scope

We are big fans of Zabbix and use it as our core monitoring system for our Chinese MSP business, monitoring thousands of hosts for hundreds of customers across dozens of locations, data centers, and cloud. We've customized it with some UI enhancements, API additions, and DB integrations into ticket and service systems, too.

Use Cases and Deployment Scope

We use Zabbix to monitor both the internal IT Infrastructure, as well as the external IT Infrastructure. It was first implemented in 2010 and it has evolved significantly over the years, giving us a single pane of glass for monitoring systems, storage, network and the applications themselves. By implementing a solution that provides us this level of visibility, Engineers only have a single place to look to find the root cause of an issue, rather than jumping from system to system, trying to correlate events.
Zabbix is heavily used by Systems, Network and Database Engineers as well as Applications Developers to provide visibility to what is happening in the environment, to notice a problem before our users do.
We have implemented Zabbix so that there is a central Zabbix server (hosted in AWS), with Zabbix proxies at each physical location where there is infrastructure. This way if the Zabbix server goes down, no data is lost, as it is cached on each of the proxies until connectivity is restored to the Zabbix server.

Use Cases and Deployment Scope

Our operations team uses Zabbix to monitor our company's physical and virtual infrastructure. Zabbix monitors our servers, network gear, CPU performance data and application uptime. We have integrated Zabbix alerts with PagerDuty to get pinged when an issue arises.

Use Cases and Deployment Scope

We use Zabbix organization-wide to monitor several environments in AWS. Use of the Zabbix proxy allows us to manage many environments from a centralized location. We can graph and alert on all separate environments in a monolithic fashion. Zabbix's new trending and forecasting allow us to model performance based on trends in each environment.

Use Cases and Deployment Scope

The company was using a very old version of Nagios at the time. I created a pro/con list for my manager on which monitoring application to switch to. Zabbix ended up being the winner based on features. It is specifically used to monitor EMR servers to ensure they are readily available for Office use at all times. We also used the software to notify support staff if there is an issue. The on-call person will receive the alarm and solve it as needed.

Use Cases and Deployment Scope

Zabbix is a simple to setup and easy to manage solution. Very little in-depth tech skills needed to deploy initially due to pre-made ISOs and virtual machines, and with the help of a raft of templates available for free online to make it an essential monitoring tool for any business. Support is available if you want it - although from my perspective it looked to be costly if you simply want light email only assistance on your setup.

Use Cases and Deployment Scope

Zabbix is being used for data collection and monitoring sections of our network. We use its information to plot out future resource bottlenecks, plan hardware upgrades, identify unusual usage patterns, failure rates, uptimes and execution of maintenance scripts.

Use Cases and Deployment Scope

Zabbix is a preferred option for our organization based on its open-source nature and versatile functionality. The Zabbix sender and trap features allow us to set up adhoc alerts based on specific criteria, such as log grepping for error frequency. We also use Logstash in tandem with Zabbix to generate alerts based on Logstash queries.

Use Cases and Deployment Scope

Zabbix is currently in place monitoring servers and network hardware across the entire organization. We're using it to monitor service availability as well and have made attempts to use it for hardware monitoring as well, but the SNMP Trap support is lacking at best and very clunky to implement.

Use Cases and Deployment Scope

Zabbix is used to monitor about 5000 network devices, 1000 servers and other services totaling 8000 hosts. Our IT department is deploying Zabbix to replace older monitoring services, to expand and modernize monitoring and alerting. Alerting is being automated and alerts are to be distributed to the responsible parties and even automate recovery where possible. Zabbix also stores a lot of useful "normal state" performance metrics for reference during problems.

About Zabbix

Zabbix is an open-source network performance monitoring software. The core program is free, with paid support from the vendor. It provides out-of-the-box templates from Zabbix and community developers. Zabbix includes network health measurements, including memory utilization, packet loss rate, and predictive trends in bandwidth usage and downtimes. These measurements can be adjusted using custom thresholds for network health and security issue alerts.


Zabbix also offers automation capabilities, including automatic network detection, configuration management, and report generation. It also enables remote and scripted remediation efforts when an issue is detected. The open-source format of the software is designed to support customization by users and the community.
