Using Zabbix with PostgreSQL as the database backend

We started using Zabbix to monitor the IT infrastructure at The University of Oslo in 2014. During all this time we have been running all our Zabbix servers on VMware virtual servers with an acceptable level of performance. This situation changed some months ago when the VMvare+Storage we were using did not have more available resources for us to grow and it was slowing down the future development of our monitoring system.

El guardian del tesoro

The primary purpose of a database administrator (DBA) is to protect a precious treasure, our data.

A DBA must ensure the integrity of the data in the database, the availability of this data when needed, the durability over time and that only authorized personal have access to this data.

Unfortunately this is not always true and very often we can see systems with severe security problems in the way that ensure and protect the data.
