Impressions from Zabbix France Meeting 2012

Last week the Zabbix France Meeting 2012 event was successfully completed and we are happy to share our great experience with all of you!

More than 40 representatives of companies from France took participation in the event held at the Embassy of Latvia premises in Paris. All attendees, including the representatives of Zabbix SIA – Alexei Vladishev (founder and CEO) and Sergey Sorokin (Director of Business Development), gained incomparable impressions and experience from this one of a kind meeting.

We were very pleased and honored to see such a big and sincere interest about Zabbix Monitoring Solution from our existing, as well as potential partners and customers. So, for the Zabbix team it was twice as important to make sure that this conference-type of event was held on the highest professional level possible. Hopefully we managed to do that and are looking forward to our next event of a kind!

IT sneak-peak

Referencing item values in graph titles [ZBXNEXT-1]

Zabbix developers are making the final preparations before releasing one of the most requested new features: the ability to reference item values in graph titles. This improvement will allow to use standard {host:key.func(param)} macros in the title to display the last, average, minimum or maximum value of an item. For instance, you can use a macro like {Cisco switch:ifAlias[{ Port001}].last(0)} to display the alias of an interface. Very handy!
