Two new books on Zabbix: Common Questions, Detailed setup

Technology moves with a rapid pace, 5 years in IT field is enough to change a lot of things.

Five years back, when I wrote a post on Zabbix Implementation, then there weren’t many books on the topic and forums or posts like mine were the kind of only ways forward for getting help on issues related to zabbix. Then in March 2010, possibly one of the few excellent books on Zabbix was introduced to me. Fast forward to 2015 and now we have many of them. I came across two of them in recent.

1. Zabbix Network Monitoring Essentials

2. Zabbix Cookbook

While the first one covers in details about how to go around setting up a Distributed Zabbix Monitoring solution for your enterprise and various options available for the same, the second book focuses on basics to start from a scratch, covering things from definition level to make it easy for a new comer. Both the books do a great job considering the short page count because admit it, despite of our curiosity to learn new things, the kind of life we IT guys live, it doesn’t leave much of the room for reading lengthy books.
