Zabbix 6.0 LTS release
Zabbix LLC has announced the release of the latest version of Zabbix Long Term Support (LTS). Zabbix 6.0 LTS brings many of the expected features and enhancements. LTS versions are a major part of the Zabbix new release cycle and come with guaranteed 5-year support that provides additional features, fixes and enhancements throughout the lifecycle.
Because Zabbix instances are deployed around the world, in a variety of applications and infrastructures of different sizes, the goal of Zabbix 6.0 LTS is to provide the most popular features covering many different aspects of monitoring. The new features aim to provide additional value to enterprise service providers, the DevOps and ITOps teams, as well as to improve the overall monitoring workflow and provide new insights at various levels. Key features added to Zabbix 6.0 LTS include:
A brief overview of the most important features available in the new version
Added value for your business services
Service monitoring has undergone a major overhaul. Zabbix 6.0 LTS aims to provide users with added value for their business by leveraging new business services monitoring (BSM) features. Business Services Monitoring combines flexibility, performance, and an improved user interface to provide our end users with the tools they need to monitor their business services and perform automated cause analysis. An enhanced SLA reporting feature, developed in collaboration with a Slovak company, provides the tools needed to track business service level indicators (SLI) to ensure that your team meets set service level objectives (SLO).
Zabbix Server cluster support
The "out-of-the-box" high availability solution allows Zabbix users to deploy a Zabbix Server HA cluster without the use of any external tools. Users can now deploy one or more backup nodes to ensure zero downtime during unplanned downtime, server updates, or other maintenance tasks.
Introduction of machine learning
With Zabbix machine learning, anomaly detection and basic monitoring are now easier than ever. Our goal was to provide a simple but flexible set of features that would allow our users to take a machine learning approach instead of relying only on static problem thresholds.
Kubernetes system monitoring
As containers and container orchestration systems become more widespread in the IT world, it has been extremely important that the latest version of Zabbix LTS provides an adequate monitoring solution for such infrastructures. Zabbix 6.0 LTS provides DevOps teams with the resources they need to monitor such environments. With support for monitoring Kubernetes pods, nodes, and internal components, Zabbix users now have the ability to monitor their Kubernetes instances at multiple levels.
Improved data collection and visualization
Zabbix 6.0 LTS comes bundled with many new templates for top vendor technologies such as Dell, Cisco, F5, Cloudflare and more. In addition to improved data collection, the new version also provides many new ways to visualize the data collected. ITOps teams will find great value in being able to define geographic maps and fill them with monitored entities, thus gaining a better overview of the company's infrastructure. The version also provides a more detailed view of the data collected with a brand new set of widgets, such as Top and Bottom N data reports, SLA status visualization, and more.
Updated training and update services
Along with the release of Zabbix 6.0 LTS, Zabbix offers an updated set of training courses designed for Zabbix 6.0 LTS. The trainings cover all the functions of Zabbix 6.0 LTS – from mastering the functions of the graphical interface and basic navigation to the deployment of complex distributed environments and learning about the internal workings of internal Zabbix processes. Zabbix LLC also provides an update service to users who want to upgrade their Zabbix instance from their current version to Zabbix 6.0 LTS – fully documented, based on the best practices.
In addition to added new features, Zabbix 6.0 LTS also includes many user interface enhancements, performance improvements, and a new set of monitoring templates and integrations for the most popular vendors, such as pfSense, F5, Mikrotik, Dell, HPE, and many more. Zabbix 6.0 LTS provides the added benefit of transferring changes from previous non-LTS releases – Zabbix 5.2 and Zabbix 5.4 – into the new LTS version.
