What is Zabbix?
Zabbix is an enterprise-class open source distributed monitoring solution.
Zabbix is software that monitors numerous parameters of a network and the health and integrity of servers. Zabbix uses a flexible notification mechanism that allows users to configure e-mail based alerts for virtually any event. This allows a fast reaction to server problems. Zabbix offers excellent reporting and data visualisation features based on the stored data. This makes Zabbix ideal for capacity planning.
Base Docker Image
Important information: All Zabbix images based on CentOS 8 image can not be updated anymore because CentOS 8 base image is outdated on Docker Hub (base image is not updated for half year). CentOS Stream 8 from quay.io is used currently.
There is some documentation and examples in the official Zabbix Documentation!
Please also follow usage instructions of each Zabbix component image:
zabbix-appliance - Zabbix appliance with built-in MySQL server, Zabbix server, Zabbix Java Gateway and Zabbix frontend based on Nginx web-server
Important information: Zabbix Docker Appliance has been decommissioned and will not be available for 3.0.31, 4.0.19, 4.4.7, 5.0.0 and newer releases. Please use a separate Docker images for each component instead of the all-in-one solution.
