Recently we here at Opensource ICT Solutions have built a new integration for your Zabbix setup. A lot of Zabbix users have hosts that they want to display on the map. For example if you have Zabbix hosts that change location every few days or just to create an overview of your current Zabbix hosts.
With our new integration we made this easy for you. We use Google Maps to display the Zabbix hosts right into your Zabbix frontend as you can see in the image below.
We can do this with moving hardware as displayed in the image for moving cars, but we can also display static markers for your hardware in different parts of the country or even world. You will never have to check your inventory coordinates again, but you can simply navigate to the map and get your overview right there.
Besides displaying different types of markers we can also display different coloured markers as shown in the image below:
We use this to display different states on your hosts. For example if there’s a problem we can make a marker RED and if everything is fine we can make a marker BLUE. We can also use this to display different severities, picking different colours for Warning, Average, High and Disaster.
The amazing thing with this integration is that you have your overview right in your Zabbix frontend. You don’t have to navigate to different URL’s and retrain your employees. Simply tell them to go to Monitoring | GeoMaps in the Zabbix frontend and it takes them right to the overview.
Check out how the entire integration works in the video below.
