Grafana is a beautiful, open source tool that can be used to create dashboards filled with data that has been gathered by a multitude of sources. For this demo, we'll graph some of the data that our Zabbix instance has collected.
[grafana] name=grafana baseurl=https://packagecloud.io/grafana/stable/el/7/$basearch repo_gpgcheck=1 enabled=1 gpgcheck=1 gpgkey=https://packagecloud.io/gpg.key https://grafanarel.s3.amazonaws.com/RPM-GPG-KEY-grafana sslverify=1 sslcacert=/etc/pki/tls/certs/ca-bundle.crt
yum install grafana -y
systemctl enable grafana-server systemctl start grafana-server
grafana-cli plugins install alexanderzobnin-zabbix-app
systemctl restart grafana-server
You should now have a beautiful, autogenerated graph of whatever Zabbix item you picked. Grafana graphs are great for graphing items like CPU utilization or number of active VPN users, etc.
Also, keep in mind that there are multiple panels included (other than Graph) and that there are more available to download.
The possibilities of data representation with Grafana and Zabbix are endless!
