Zabbix is a powerful monitoring system for servers, network services and network equipment, designed for use in large and medium-sized enterprises. The application is able to collect information about network requests, traffic usage, changes in server load, as well as to report problems that occur during the work process. All collected data is displayed in the form of visual diagrams and graphs, systematized and sorted. Zabbix has a convenient web interface and is a multi-platform solution. For Windows, unfortunately, only the client part of the system is available (the server part is supported only on Unix-like systems and Mac OS).
In addition to other information, the customer can transmit data on CPU load, RAM usage, active processes, cooler speed, system component temperature, non-hard disk space and so on. Monitoring of PostgreSQL, MySQL, Oracle and SQLite databases is also supported. The list of protocols that Zabbix works with includes HTTP, SMTP and SNMP. The collected data can be exported to the usual formats with the help of regular means.
The software is distributed under the GPL license, i.e. is completely free and has open source code. In the Zabbix archive you will find the server and client parts of the system, as well as a simple graphical shell with a minimal set of features.
