Zabbix is an enterprise-class, open source, distributed monitoring solution. Designed as an all-in-one monitoring solution, Zabbix can track performance and availability of network servers, devices, services, and other IT resources.

Zabbix empowers administrators to quickly respond to incidents with on-screen display capabilities and alerts by e-mail, SMS, or Jabber. Users can also collect, store, manage, and analyze information received from IT infrastructure.

Actively used by SMBs and large enterprises across all industries and in almost every country, Zabbix has a robust community driving its continued development.

Deploying the Zabbix Marketplace App

The Linode Marketplace allows you to easily deploy software on a Linode using the Linode Cloud Manager.

  1. Log in to the Cloud Manager and select the Marketplace link from the left navigation menu. This displays the Linode Compute Create page with the Marketplace tab pre-selected.

  2. Under the Select App section, select the app you would like to deploy.

  3. Fill out all required Options for the selected app as well as any desired Advanced Options (which are optional). See the Configuration Options section for details.

  4. Complete the rest of the form as discussed within the Getting Started > Create a Linode.

  5. Click the Create Linode button. Once the Linode has provisioned and has fully powered on, wait for the software installation to complete. If the Linode is powered off or restarted before this time, the software installation will likely fail. To determine if the installation has completed, open the Linode’s Lish console and wait for the system login prompt to appear.

  6. Follow the instructions within the Getting Started After Deployment section.

Software installation should complete within 5-10 minutes after the Linode has finished provisioning.

Configuration Options

Zabbix Options

You can configure your Zabbix App by providing values for the following fields:

FieldDescription

General Options

For advice on filling out the remaining options on the Create a Linode form, see Getting Started > Create a Linode. That said, some options may be limited or recommended based on this Marketplace App:

  • Supported distributions: CentOS 7
  • Recommended minimum plan: All plan types and sizes can be used.

Getting Started after Deployment

Access your Zabbix App

After Zabbix has finished installing, you must first access your Zabbix Linode from the console via SSH, to obtain a randomly-generated administrative password. You can then use this password to log into your Zabbix App via web browser at your Linode’s IPv4 address.

  1. From your terminal, log into your Zabbix Linode as the root user with the following command, replacing 192.0.2.0 with your Linode’s IPv4 address:

     ssh [email protected]
    
  2. The Zabbix welome banner appears immediately after logging into your Zabbix Linode. Copy and save the randomly generated Admin password from the welcome banner in a secure manner for later. Here is an example welcome banner:

    ********************************************************************************
    Zabbix frontend credentials:
    Username: Admin
    Password: abcdef0123456789

    Official Zabbix documentation available at https://www.zabbix.com/documentation/current/
    Note! Do not forget to change timezone PHP variable in /etc/php.d/99-zabbix.ini file.
    ********************************************************************************
  3. Enter your Zabbix Linode’s IPv4 address into a browser window to access your Zabbix App’s login page.

    Note
    Zabbix uses a self-signed certificate. Because it is not signed by a common Certificate Authority, your browser may warn you about the security of the connection and require you to add a security exception.

  4. Enter Admin as the username and the Admin password you saved from the welcome banner, then click Sign in to access the Zabbix control panel.

Currently, Linode does not manage software and systems updates for Marketplace Apps. It is up to the user to perform routine maintenance on software deployed in this fashion.
