From a few days ago, we have already available for download the awaited new version of Zabbix, the 3.4. You can check here in details all the new features. In this post, we'll try to focus on what it was, maybe, one of the most awaited features, the posibility to design customized dashboards in a more flexible manner than in previous versions.


In fact, until now, if you wanted to build more complex dashboards, you necessarily have to design Zabbix "screens" with the elements you needed and there was some useful elements you could not use like "Problems". We understand in fact that the use of Zabbix "Screens" will be more focused as templates to monitor for instance, several data from a type of server and "...

We live in the age of digitization, where ever more weight is given to knowledge, information quality and responsiveness. In this constellation, monitoring plays a fundamental role in people’s lifestyle and daily businesses.


More and more, customers from hosting services (from classic Web hosting services to VPS servers) demand to their service provider the ability to monitor their status in any way. In this sense, response time, CPU consumption, RAM usage, disk space, etc., take on a greater importance and respond to a real need of the customer, and additionally it adds value to the product.


As company example, the well-known cloud service provider DigitalOcean, which has integrated a monitoring service directly into each of its virtual se...

Today it is very important that the applications that we put into operation in our companies are not isolated silos, limiting our productivity, efficiency and traceability and, in the case of monitoring, preventing event correlation.

Zabbix is already used to combine different metrics, sensors, database information, etc. from different sources, including cloud monitoring systems such as AWS CloudWatch, application performance such as AppDynamics or monitoring logs such as Logstash.

This is one of our strengths and advantages with our customers, and we are very satisfied with what we can do with it. But many times, even if Zabbix comes to fill a gap in our customers' monitoring systems, they already have some other DevOps tools for they daily ...

En las primeras versiones una de las cosas que más se echaban en falta era la encriptación en las comunicaciones entre los diversos elementos de la arquitectura.


Esto provocaba la necesidad, de cara a garantizar la seguridad de nuestras instalaciones, que se solventase mediante VPNs, túneles SSH y otras soluciones habituales para proteger servicios no seguros . Esto suponía una sobrecarga de los sistemas y complicaba su administración y mantenimiento.


Afortunadamente, la gente de Zabbix lo han solucionado y ya existe soporte, desde la versión 3.0, para cifrado de las comunicaciones basado en TLS v.1.2.


Como primer apunte técnico, y que nos parece una excelente idea es el soporte que han dado para 3 librerías diferentes: OpenSSL, GnuTLS y mb...

En estos primeros posts, vamos a analizar algunas de las interesantes nuevas funcionalidades que nos brinda la nueva versión de Zabbix. Hemos escogido para este primer post, una de las más destacadas, denominada "Event tags", o "etiquetas de evento".


La perspectiva respecto a la gestión de las incidencias de Zabbix hasta ahora estaba muy orientada a "hosts" concretos, a servidores y a servicios dentro de servidores y no de manera global a "servicios". Esta perspectiva, proveniente de la naturaleza original de la configuración de Zabbix (que sigue vigente) aplica muy bien para la gestión de redes y servidores en una única ubicación, lo cual corresponde a un uso muy habitual del sistema.


Pero, hoy en d...
