IT sneak-peak

SNMPv3 context support [ZBXNEXT-1438]

When using Zabbix to monitor SNMPv3 devices you may have previously lacked the support of the SNMPv3 context parameter. We're glad to announce that now, starting from 2.2, Zabbix will support the context parameter for all SNMPv3 item, network discovery and low-level discovery rule checks.

This development was made available to the community by our Reseller from Italy, Quadrata di Bellini Dimitri , who financed the development of this feature. So if you miss any functionality or feature in Zabbix, you may follow this path and contact Zabbix sales to find out how to finance its development.


Another 3rd Party Tool

Another great Zabbix application was suggested by a Zabbix follower, which is now available in our 3rd Party Tools section. Tabbix, designed by Mehmet Tirgil, is a simple lightweight Android application for the Zabbix monitoring system, which allows you to check active triggers, hosts and detailed host and trigger information. Tabbix has capability of multiple servers and you can see the status of all servers and reach triggers of one server in one screen. The trigger list shows you whether it's acknowledged or not and you can acknowledge a trigger. Tabbix also supports Zabbix 2.0.x

To give this app a try, please download it here.
