Integration with Zabbix

Zabbix is a versatile monitoring tool. The system monitors the dynamics of servers and network equipment, quickly responds to emergency situations and warns of possible problems with the load. Zabbix is able to collect statistics in the specified work environment and act in certain cases in a given way.

  • get statistics through simple queries;
  • change alpha name;

AlertScriptsPath=/usr/lib/zabbix/alertscripts AlertScriptsPath is used by default, but you can specify any directory provided that there is access to the Zabbix system user.


In the notification scripts directory, add two script files:

  • (intercepting data from zabbix and passing it to the SMS sending script);
  • sms_send.php (php script for sending messages via
