Today QNAP surprised me with an email that they would love to provide me with a ready-to-run Zabbix Image for a VM on my storage. I did not decline...
I couldn't resist and played a bit with it. Zabbix is not the most intuitive monitoring solution for me. I threw it against the wall in frustration a few years ago, but now I am older and wiser. And the tutorials have become better as well.
Currently I'm most interested how my three ISPs are performing (Cable, DSL & LTE) so I set up a bit of monitoring.
I agree that it is not fair to plot a LTE connection vs. Cable and DSL, but it gives me quick overview. Next up is the integration of my Check Point Firewall into the Zabbix. Before you know it, I will be probably monitoring thousands of parameters. So perhaps the next step should be to make sure I have a working backup.
