ZABBIX is software that monitors numerous parameters of a
network and the health and integrity of servers. ZABBIX
uses a flexible notification mechanism that allows users
to configure e-mail based alerts for virtually any event.
This allows a fast reaction to server problems. ZABBIX
offers excellent reporting and data visualisation features
based on the stored data. This makes ZABBIX ideal for
ZABBIX supports both polling and trapping. All ZABBIX
reports and statistics, as well as configuration
parameters are accessed through a web-based front end. A
web-based front end ensures that the status of your network
and the health of your servers can be assessed from any
location. Properly configured, ZABBIX can play an important
role in monitoring IT infrastructure. This is equally true
for small organisations with a few servers and for large
companies with a multitude of servers.
-rpmlint complains about the non-standard-uid/gid on some directories that are owned by 'zabbix'. This is necessary to run zabbix as non-root. (Similar deal to my ganglia package).
-the zabbix server component is currently set to Requires: mysql-server. Technically, it doesn't, as the mysql server could be on another machine, but I think this is a nice convenience, since the vast majority of people run the zabbix server against a local db.
