Zorka – New Project on "3rd Party Tools"

Last week we have received another interesting submission to our 3rd Party Tools collections. Zorka, designed by Rafal Lewczuk, is a programmable monitoring agent for Java. It integrates monitored JVM with Zabbix directly in the similar manner Zapcat used to work - using native Zabbix protocol. Zorka is released under GPLv3 and it comes with over 50 ready to use Zabbix templates for various application servers and Java frameworks.
