Enable cross-origin requests in Zabbix
Recently, I received a couple of requests asking about how to get zabbixweb working on an external server, as by default you can’t hit the Zabbix API from external servers on both the appliance downloaded from the Zabbix site and the default install on RHEL-based Linux servers. I looked back at my original blog post, and sure enough, I forgot to explain how to do that!
Zabbix web interface up on GitHub
Just a quick note that I’ve added the Zabbix frontend to a GitHub repository. There’s been a lot of interest in this frontend over the last week or so, and to that end I figured it’d be nice to have a place where we could all get together and work on improving it.
Building a better Zabbix frontend
Recently, I ended up looking into Zabbixas a server monitoring solution. I was very impressed, but I felt that the reporting features left something to be desired; they were very robust, but it was hard to get all the information I wanted on one page.Zabbix’s bulky monitoring screensIt was great for monitoring one server on a screen – giving me history of resource usage in pretty graphs and so on – but there really wasn’t a good way to get a view that would give me all of this information in a compact manner for all of the servers I wanted to monitor, at the same time.
