Zabbix has been our preference to date for monitoring a handful of physical servers and umpteen servers deployed in our virtual infrastructure. Certainly a great upgrade when we moved away from Solarwinds, Netcool, and Nagios.

Disjointed monitoring creates friction in your business and leaves holes in your security. Unified monitoring gives you the 100% coverage you need.
As your business grows, pressures of greater traffic, more applications, staff onboarding and new customer aquisition strain your network.
As your operational needs accelerate, reactive monitoring leaves your IT team running to catch up with any issues. Security problems can escalate quickly. Network performance can degrade. You don't want to risk a breach, or allow processes to drag frustratingly for your teams; either of which could diminish customer experience.
Unified monitoring means never losing control. You'll see everything on all your environments, while automation ensures you are the first and last to know about any issues. Corrections can be made before either staff or customers notice and your data can remain secure.
You need a unified cloud monitoring solution that gives you:
● Single view, crystal clear visibility of your entire system
● Automated, unified response for fast investigation & resolution
● Limitless scalability and integration all with centralised control
Best at its best! ... No special coding skills are required to use Ansible's playbooks. It is very powerful and allows you to model very complex workflows in a very easy way. With this we can easily customise anything according to our needs. it is very efficient in use as it doesn't require any room on the server.
Gartner Peer Insights review
Network issues can quickly escalate into serious problems impacting security and service. With unified monitoring, this will never happen to you.
Monitoring and automation is no longer a choice for larger businesses. As your network expands and the number of apps you need to deliver services grows, unexpected incidents across your environments can easily go undetected.
It is simply not possible for humans to keep track of every piece of network activity once a business grows beyond a certain point. There will always be a lag, and that lag can cause a minor incident to become major. Why take this extraordinary risk?
The key is to select a centralised, fully integratable and scalable solution that allows both instant visibility into all your data and fast, automated responses to empower your IT team to take the most effective action.
You need a unified cloud monitoring solution that gives you:
● Fast, easy deployment with 100s of templates and bespoke options
● Multiple views of your IT environment: widget-based dashboards, graphs, network maps, slideshows and drill-down reports
● True automation: security, network, container and cloud automation for continuous delivery of rolling updates and zero downtime
