Make It Your Way

Zabbix is a universal monitoring tool with plenty of features and options to support very different IT environments. But still there is the possibility that you may be missing some important functions that could make your everyday work much easier. Did you know that you may contract Zabbix to develop functionality that you are missing?

It is as easy as 1-2-3. Go to our Development Services page, fill in a request form, agree with Zabbix on the scope of work, cost and delivery dates and expect delivery according to the schedule. It may be faster and easier than you thought. And there are plenty of benefits of doing so:

  • your everyday life will become easier, thus leaving more time to focus on other important things;
  • requested functionality will be supported in upcoming releases;
  • you will be directly involved in the development of the best monitoring solution;
  • your functionality can make somebody else's life much easier as well.

Visit our Development Services page to learn more about the application process and prices.

IT sneak-peak

Screen Shading

Screen shading is an improvement to flicker-free screens, recently introduced by Zabbix developers and now available in the Zabbix 2.0 version. If a screen element fails to update due to problems on the server side or slow network connection, it will be shadowed to indicate that the data on the screen are out of date. The newly implemented feature makes it easier to notice outdated information on the screen.

Zabbix Autumn Contest
