Product description

About the Author

Andrea Dalle Vacche

Andrea Dalle Vacche is a highly skilled IT Professional with over 12 years of industry experience. He graduated from Univerista' degli Studi di Ferrara with an Information Technology certification. This laid the technology foundation, which Andrea has built on ever since. He has acquired various other industry respected accreditations, which include Cisco, Oracle, RHCE, ITIL, and of course Zabbix. Throughout his career he has worked on many large-scale environments, often in roles which have been very complex on a consultant basis. This has further enhanced his growing skill set, adding to his practical knowledge base and concreting his appetite for theoretical technical study. His love for Zabbix came from his time spent in the Oracle world as a Database Administrator/Developer. His time was spent mainly reducing "ownership costs" with specialization in monitoring and automation. This is where he came across Zabbix and the flexibility, both technically and administratively, it offered. Using this as a launch pad, it inspired Andrea to develop Orabbix, the first open source software to monitor Oracle completely integrated with Zabbix.

Andrea has published a number of articles on Zabbix-related software such as DBforBIX. His projects are publicly available on his website http://www.smartmarmot.com. Currently, Andrea is working for a leading global investment bank in a very diverse and challenging environment. His involvement is vast and deals with many aspects of the Unix/Linux platforms as well as paying due diligence to many different kinds of third-party software, which are strategically aligned to the bank's technical roadmap.

Stefano Kewan Lee

Stefano Kewan Lee is an IT Consultant with 10 years of experience in system integration, security, and administration. He is a certified Zabbix specialist in Large Environments, holds a Linux administration certification from the LPI, and a GIAC GCFW certification from SANS Institute. When he's not busy breaking websites, he lives in the countryside with two cats and two dogs and practices martial arts.

4.0 out of 5 stars Solid reference for Zabbix 8 April 2015
By Prairy Earth - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
This was the first of three books that I've bought on Zabbix. For the longest time, this was the only book out on the topic. It's been joined by others. The writers have done a good job at explaining Zabbix. In fact, good enough that I was able to set up a test monitoring environment to see if Zabbix would work for my company. If you're trying to understand Zabbix, I would suggest buying this book.

2.0 out of 5 stars No Proofreaders at Packt? 21 Jan. 2015
By ColdStorage - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
It's difficult to take this book seriously, outdated as it is, due to the miserable amount of punctuation and grammar errors. At times, they're just haggard enough to knock your concentration for a loop.

2.0 out of 5 stars This is not "Mastering" for large environments, just base info book 7 Jan. 2014
By Andrey Shpak - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
I dont recommend to buy this book.


Easy to read language and high-quality printing.

Much attention is paid to the system security.

Detailed, step by step implementation of high availability system (Based on PostgreSQL).

Excellent chapter about data visualization.

Useful chapter with example of Zabbix integration with helpdesk system.


I was expecting a book written based on Zabbix 2.2.0, as stated in the description on Amazon, unfortunately the book is written by 2.0.0 , which makes the information out of her obsolete, moreover, is not even disclosed innovations 2.0.0 properly.

Zabbix installation and work with MySQL are completely ignored in this book. The author argues that usage of PostgreSQL for Zabbix gain much faster result. Tests from Zabbix conf shows that to achieve high speed PostgreSQL must be qualitatively tuned. Even after that PostgreSQL does not win in speed, and if and a win, only in stability with big data.

In the book, there are no links to the official documentation , in general very little reference book that leaves the reader without any additional material.

The author does not mention virtualization in any place of the book.

Although the book is written about version 2.0.0 , where low level discovery appeared - there is almost no info about this important and time saving future. (There is total three pages about LLD in this book, of which 1.5 code and screenshot)

4.0 out of 5 stars Very good resource 23 May 2014
By JWest - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
For me, I wish the book had spent less time on installing and more time on various configurations. That being said - it's a very good book and was instrumental in helping us jump-start our zabbix infrastructure. I'm very glad I got this.
3.0 out of 5 stars Not what I was expecting ... exactly ... 11 April 2014
By Kristopher - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
Not 100% what I was expecting, that and it's for an older version. What's in the book is good if that's what you want to know. I would say save your money and hit up the Zabbix Forums. The online community has a wealth of information and is very helpful, far more so than this book.
