ZABBIX Proxy Explained



Zabbix Proxy is much more than just a tool for distributed monitoring and savior in case of network issues. It is hard to pretend a huge Zabbix installation without proxies to offload the server. Have long-running custom checks such as User Parameters or External scripts? Don’t put those on the Server. Let the proxy do the dirty job.

  1. Hello Dmitry thanks a lot for you videos, I have one question here, If I need to monitor a remote site the proxy server should be locate with zabbix server or in the remote site ?

  5. I have a case where I run a Zabbix server on a ship at sea. I was thinking maybe I could have both a Zabbix server, and a proxy on the ship, and a Zabbix server on shore. Then I would have the Zabbix proxy send information to both ship and shore Zabbix servers. Would that give me a Zabbix front-end on both ship and shore capable of controlling Zabbix on the ship? A few years ago I implemented a method of sending event information from ship to shore via the Zabbix API. It worked well on the limited bandwidth between ship and shore. It did not give me control on shore, but I got problem notifications. Now there is more ship-shore bandwidth, so I am thinking I might try this proxy solution again.
