Zabbix is web access interface to see data from database or logs. More information about it can be found in; http://www.zabbix.com/
Zabbix is already installed in the wfs machines;wfsdx. The wfsdx runs a process called Database Filler
which pull out the values from a series of variables of the system. The process Database Filler can be seen in the System process GUI (see figure below).
The system was setup to look at the two wfs machines and probably could be exported to the secondaries, this is something in yet deployed and it will requires more time.
The database sometimes gets stuck, because the process is not longer running and Zabbix reports not updated values. This is something that it has to be conseidered when an user is looking at the Zabbix web interface. The process Database Filler can be stopped/start to restore the system.
Zabbix is also used by ARGOS
system to run as a housekeeper of different environment variables.
