Learn how to refine and organize your IT monitoring systems using your existing working knowledge of Zabbix. This step-by-step tutorial will help you unleash the full capabilities of the system.


  • Create the perfect monitoring configuration based on your specific needs
  • Extract reports and visualizations from your data
  • Integrate monitoring data with other systems in your environment
  • Learn the advanced techniques of Zabbix to monitor networks and performances in large environments

In Detail

Monitoring systems are a crucial part of any IT environment. They can be extremely useful not only to identify specific problems, but also to measure your system's performance and find the best way to improve it. However, they can be misleading and confusing if not correctly configured and managed. False alarms and missing data can undermine a monitoring system's contribution to a healthy IT department. Zabbix 2.2 allows you to customize and implement ideas by extending, adding, or customizing functionality, giving an added value to that technology.

This comprehensive guide will help you to make both strategic and practical decisions about the Zabbix monitoring system, so that it will fit your environment and monitoring needs like a glove. From choosing the correct size and configurationto what you should actually monitor, including exporting and integrating your data with other systems, this book will leave you with no doubts about the crucial role of a well configured monitoring system.

Introducing you to methods to configure and choose between high availability and distributed Zabbix architectures for your largeenvironment, this guide will proceed to show you how to gather monitoring data, visualize, and act on it. Next, the guide explores how you can extend Zabbix and connect it to trouble ticketing systems or data mining solutions. You will also learn how to choose the ideal database backend, monitor appliances that only talk SNMP and application servers that talk JMX, and organize your charts and maps in screens that can be visualized on big screens. It shows you how to leverage Zabbix's discovery capabilities to track your ever changing environment and build complex, intelligent alarms that won't distract you with trivial problems. Finally, you will learn to expand Zabbix's capabilities through its scripting facilities, protocol and powerful API.

What you will learn from this book

  • Integrate Zabbix in your large or complex environment
  • Establish a distributed monitoring solution
  • Set up Zabbix and its database in a High Availability configuration
  • Collect data from a variety of monitoring objects
  • Organize your data into graphs, charts, and maps
  • Build intelligent triggers and alarms to monitor you network
  • Write scripts to create custom monitoring probes
  • Understand Zabbix's database scheme and harvest data from it
  • Automate procedures using Zabbix's API


Written as a practical step-by-step tutorial, this book is full of engaging examples to help you learn in a practical context

Who this book is written for

If you are a system administrator or an IT architect and want to know how to better integrate your Zabbix installation with your surrounding environment, this book is ideal for you. A basic, working knowledge of Zabbix is assumed, so that the book can focus on how to take full advantage of every component. The code in the later chapter will be explained in its functionality, but basic programming skills are assumed as well.

Andrea Dalle Vacche

Andrea Dalle Vacche is a highly skilled IT Professional with over 12 years of industry experience. He graduated from Univerista' degli Studi di Ferrara with an Information Technology certification. This laid the technology foundation, which Andrea has built on ever since. He has acquired various other industry respected accreditations, which include Cisco, Oracle, RHCE, ITIL, and of course Zabbix. Throughout his career he has worked on many large-scale environments, often in roles which have been very complex on a consultant basis. This has further enhanced his growing skill set, adding to his practical knowledge base and concreting his appetite for theoretical technical study. His love for Zabbix came from his time spent in the Oracle world as a Database Administrator/Developer. His time was spent mainly reducing "ownership costs" with specialization in monitoring and automation. This is where he came across Zabbix and the flexibility, both technically and administratively, it offered. Using this as a launch pad, it inspired Andrea to develop Orabbix, the first open source software to monitor Oracle completely integrated with Zabbix.

Andrea has published a number of articles on Zabbix-related software such as DBforBIX. His projects are publicly available on his website Currently, Andrea is working for a leading global investment bank in a very diverse and challenging environment. His involvement is vast and deals with many aspects of the Unix/Linux platforms as well as paying due diligence to many different kinds of third-party software, which are strategically aligned to the bank's technical roadmap.

5.0 su 5 stelle Mastering Zabbix 11 marzo 2014
Formato:Copertina flessibile
Dopo aver letto "Zabbix 1.8 Network Monitoring" ed iniziato ad implementare alcune stazioni di monitoring, dopo poco si é posta la necessità di conoscere in modo approfondito come gestire ambienti complessi e dall'alto numero di host gestiti.
Questo libro e' provvidenziale: basato sull'esperienza degli autori riporta esempi dettagliati di installazione e setup, sia a livello di rdbms (partizionamento tabelle, etc) nonché il modo corretto per gestire proxy e nodi per il monitoring di stazioni remote.
Sicuramente adattero' le mie installazioni sulla base di tali consigli e linee guida!

2.0 su 5 stelle This is not "Mastering" for large environments, just base info book 7 gennaio 2014

I dont recommend to buy this book.


Easy to read language and high-quality printing.

Much attention is paid to the system security.

Detailed, step by step implementation of high availability system (Based on PostgreSQL).

Excellent chapter about data visualization.

Useful chapter with example of Zabbix integration with helpdesk system.


I was expecting a book written based on Zabbix 2.2.0, as stated in the description on Amazon, unfortunately the book is written by 2.0.0 , which makes the information out of her obsolete, moreover, is not even disclosed innovations 2.0.0 properly.

Zabbix installation and work with MySQL are completely ignored in this book. The author argues that usage of PostgreSQL for Zabbix gain much faster result. Tests from Zabbix conf shows that to achieve high speed PostgreSQL must be qualitatively tuned. Even after that PostgreSQL does not win in speed, and if and a win, only in stability with big data.

In the book, there are no links to the official documentation , in general very little reference book that leaves the reader without any additional material.

The author does not mention virtualization in any place of the book.

Although the book is written about version 2.0.0 , where low level discovery appeared - there is almost no info about this important and time saving future. (There is total three pages about LLD in this book, of which 1.5 code and screenshot)

5.0 su 5 stelle a bit confusing at times but well worth the money for the time it saves 28 marzo 2014

I was asked by Packt Publishing to give the book Mastering Zabbix a review. It’s by Andrea Dalle Vacche and Stefano Kewan Lee, copyright 2013.

I found it most interesting to see what topics they covered as the book title states, “Mastering Zabbix” vs. not covered. Many things I’ve done with Zabbix are not discussed in the book and many things I haven’t done with Zabbix are discussed in the book.

I would say the book is a good resource for anyone who has installed Zabbix and has done some basic things with it. Now that they got their feet wet and are looking to get more out of the software, get the book!

The book covers some very advanced scenarios which I’m not sure should be in the book, but they are. One of which is High Availability. HA in Linux can be done different ways. I’ve done it, it’s not easy. If you haven’t done HA in Linux, then the book will probably shorten the learning curve, but it’s not a cookie cutter system. You’ll end up reading a lot of other docs/books on HA before you’re done.

Overall, it’s a useful book. It’s not perfectly written and easy to follow in some places, but since you probably already have your feet wet, it’s not bad. Definitely worth the online price. I would have bought it if there was a book when I started with Zabbix!

For me, I wish the book had spent less time on installing and more time on various configurations. That being said - it's a very good book and was instrumental in helping us jump-start our zabbix infrastructure. I'm very glad I got this.

5.0 su 5 stelle The title is revealing: Not a begginers guide 28 marzo 2014
Di Oscar Beiro - Pubblicato su
Formato:Copertina flessibile
I've read previous reviews and I don't find them really fair with the book.
Zabbix 101 would have been a misleading titlle, but here we are talking about Mastering Zabbix. You need a working zabbix server and installation is not covered in detail, well you have the official manual, but there's a lot of informationin this book.
I don't have a huge high availability enviroment, but found extremely useful information about distributed monitoring.
My point is I've found all the information I needed on it, plus some extra knowledge I might use in the future.

Not 100% what I was expecting, that and it's for an older version. What's in the book is good if that's what you want to know. I would say save your money and hit up the Zabbix Forums. The online community has a wealth of information and is very helpful, far more so than this book.
