Software-update: Zabbix 1.9.1 alpha / 1.8.4rc4

Met het programma Zabbix kun je verschillende onderdelen van een netwerk en de daarop aangeboden services in de gaten houden. Het programma ondersteunt twee verschillende mogelijkheden om de relevante informatie binnen te halen. Zo kan het vanaf zijn eigen host requests sturen naar de verschillende services en netwerkonderdelen, die daar vervolgens op reageren. Ook is er een zogeheten agent, die op de te bewaken host kan worden geïnstalleerd en waarmee gedetailleerde informatie kan worden binnengehaald. Voor meer informatie over Zabbix verwijzen we naar deze en deze pagina's. De ontwikkelaars hebben versies 1.9.1 alpha en 1.8.4rc4 uitgebracht met de onderstaande lijst aanpassingen:

What's New in 1.9.1
  • Multiple network interfaces
    Multiple network interfaces can be assigned to a single host, therefore one host may have several IP addresses with different checks for each IP.
  • Better translation framework for WEB interface
    Zabbix interface translations are handled by GNU gettext module.
  • Auto-registration with passive checks
    Added support of monitoring auto-registered hosts with passive checks. It is very handy for monitoring of Cloud-like environments.
  • Re-design of unknown events and triggers
    Unknown triggers and events will no longer be displayed in Zabbix WEB interface, a special flag will be shown if Zabbix is not confident about status of triggers or events.
  • Low level discovery
    Zabbix is able to discover your file systems, network interfaces and SNMP interfaces automatically with no manual work. One template can be used for hosts having different devices.
  • Optional graph legends
    Graph legend can be optionally disabled.
  • Templated host-level screens
    Templates may contain screens for easy maintenance. The screens are available via Monitoring->Hosts, yet the form is not finished yet.
  • Database integrity
    There are significant improvements in the database schema for better consistency and security of configuration and historical data.
  • Nanosecond resolution for historical data
    Zabbix supports nanosecond resolution for historical data. If you are migrating from 1.8.x the option will be off by default. It is on for fresh setups.
  • Multiple URLs for map elements
    A map element may have multiple links (URLs) to external resources.

Wijzig sortering
Wij zijn begonnen met Nagios en werken ondertussen zo'n 2 jaar met Zabbix. Nagios biedt uiteindelijk de meeste mogelijkheden m.b.t. plugins en configuratie maar dit weegt niet op tegen de eenvoud (als je er eenmaal goed in zit zoals Intheweb schrijft) van Zabbix. Alles is web en serverbased, voor windows installeer je een agent en verder meet je alles vanaf de server. SNMP, IPMI, alles is te monitoren als je de template eenmaal hebt. Wij monitoren zo'n 700 servers, routers en switches. De leercurve van voor het doorhebben van templates, items, groups en dergelijke is even doorbijten maar daarna wil je niet meer terug naar Nagios.
Ik ken het pakket wel, echter wij gebruiken nagios (bevalt prima!). Kan iemand aangeven
of dit vergelijkbaar is met Nagios?

Edit: even RTFM gedaan en ziet er inderdaad lekker uit!

[Reactie gewijzigd door johnny2000 op 31 december 2010 14:55]

Ik ken beide. Het doel van het systeem is hetzelfde en de werking is ook niet zo heel veel anders. Het voornaamste verschil in de praktijk is dat Zabbix SNMP gebruikt om te meten en Nagios 7 verschillende methoden kent om te meten (waaronder ook SNMP).

Buiten dat is nagios erg schaalbaar (nagioscentral) en kent het een enorm uitgebreide community en third-party ontwikkeling.
Bedankt, ik heb even de manual doorgenomen. En lijkt er op dat je niet echt met plugins kan werken. Dat is wel jammer, we hebben een "shitload" aan eigen plugins voor nagios namelijk ;)
Een erg fijn pakket. In het begin is het behoorlijk zoeken naar de juiste knopjes en en mogelijkheden.

Bij onze lokale omroep in Eindhoven houden we met Zabbix bijna de gehele infrastructuur in de gaten, inclusief het aantal luisteraars via de diverse streams.

Helaas hebben we alleen onze Qnap NAS nog niet werkend gekregen om deze correct te laten monitoren.

Op dit item kan niet meer gereageerd worden.
