2019. Zabbix 4.2 adds built-in support of Prometheus data collection



Zabbix Team announced the release of Zabbix 4.2. The latest release of Zabbix is packed with modern monitoring system for: data collection and processing, distributed monitoring, real-time problem and anomaly detection, alerting and escalations, visualization and more. The new version is able to collect data in many different ways (push/pull) from various data sources including JMX, SNMP, WMI, HTTP/HTTPS, RestAPI, XML Soap, SSH, Telnet, agents, scripts and other data sources, with Prometheus being the latest addition to the bunch. Now the 4.2 release will offer an integration with the exporters using native support of PromQL language. Moreover, the use of dependent metrics will give the Zabbix team ability to collect massive amounts of Prometheus metrics in a highly efficient way: this way they get all the data using a single HTTP call and then just reuse it for corresponding dependent metrics.
