Zabbix 6 Application and Network Monitoring


You will need access to several PCs and/or locally hosted or cloud hosted VMs and/or Rasberry PIs. In this course I demonstrate various features using Windows 10, Ubuntu, Rasberry Pi and MacOSX
You have the choice of using dedicated hardware, or using cloud or locally hosted VM managers such as Oracle Virtual Box. The more variation you can access, the better. Zabbix agents will run on most OSs, but Zabbix Server and Proxy will need Linux such as Ubuntu or CentOS
In this course I predominantly demonstrate using Ubuntu Linux, but also provide CentOS equivalent commands in accompanying documentation where applicable.


Hello, and welcome to my course on Zabbix,Zabbix is a complete open source monitoring software solution for networks, operating systems and applications.In this course you will install and extensively configure Zabbix Server, Zabbix Proxy, multiple Zabbix Agents on Windows, Linux and MacOS whether on the same network, behind a firewall, on dedicated hardware locally and cloud hosted.We will also look at,active an passive checks, PSK encryption, host items, triggers, graphs, and dashboards,understanding Zabbix health,alerting with email, Telegram and Slack,creating our own templates.creating a network map,reading windows event logs,item pre-processing using regex and JavaScriptmacros,discovery rule protypes,JSON API and HTTP monitoringexecuting remote bat, PowerShell, sh and python scripts,Zabbix get and sender,custom userparameters,administration scripts, calculated items,Creating custom LLD discovery rules from the ground up,MySQL monitoring,SMNP agent monitoring and trapper using OIDs and MIBsPrometheus node exporter monitoring,Auto registration and discoveryZabbix APIand much more.Zabbix can be used in the enterprise or even on you own home network where you can have much better visibility of the things connected and running on it and how they are used.Thanks for taking part in my course, and let’s get started.
