Reitse Eskens digs into using Zabbix to monitor SQL Server:
In one of the projects I’m working in, we needed to have some sort of monitoring solution on SQL Server, but there wasn’t budget for a commercial monitoring solution. There’s a small number of freeware, open-source solutions but these are all difficult to get working. In this blog I’ll show you what Zabbix has on offer as a default and what you can add yourself.
I’m not the biggest fan of Zabbix, but if it’s what you have, better to use the tools you have than not.
