Part 33: My nine months experience with Raspberry Pi 4 and Zabbix

Is Raspberry Pi 4 a goodbye or good buy for running Zabbix? How is it performance-wise? Is it reliable? Here's my nine months review of it, with a splash of appliance/application performance monitoring.

After in about April 2022 when it became clear that I am going to continue my home monitoring project, I bought a Raspberry Pi 4 to run the show. Here's my opinion how well it is suited for running Zabbix.

Part 31: Welcome to my new virtual home!

New year comes with new ideas, so I decided to move my blog from LinkedIn to a dedicated website, whatsuphome.fi. This week I'll write about the rationale of my move.

LinkedIn articles did serve my blogging purposes quite well. However, now that my home monitoring thing has become a real thing, it was time to setup a real domain for the blog. 

But why?

A real domain and a dedicated content management system do become with apparent benefits.

Part 30: Catching the Northern Lights

Can you monitor Northern Lights with Zabbix? Of course you can! By day, I am a monitoring tech lead in a global cyber security company. By night, I monitor my home with Zabbix & Grafana and do some weird experiments with them. Welcome to my blog about this project.

Part 29: The baby is crying

Can you detect a crying baby with Zabbix? Of course you can! By day, I am a monitoring tech lead in a global cyber security company. By night, I monitor my home with Zabbix & Grafana and do some weird experiments with them. Welcome to my blog about the project.

Time really flies. Our little baby girl at home is already about three and a half months old, and that shows in so many ways. If during her first month or two she cried quite a lot and quite easily due gassy stomach and whatnot, she nowadays mostly is a chill mini-human just observing the world.

Part 27: No more blackouts with Zabbix HA cluster

Can you have a Zabbix HA cluster at home? Of course you can! By day, I am a monitoring tech lead in a global cyber security company. By night, I monitor my home with Zabbix & Grafana and do some weird experiments with them. Welcome to my blog about this project.

Part 26: Zabbix the storyteller

Can you create fairy tales with Zabbix? Of course you can! By day, I am a monitoring technical lead in a global cyber security company. By night, I monitor my home with Zabbix & Grafana and do some weird experiments with them. Welcome to my blog about this project.

We all know how Zabbix has the never-ending list of integrations for just about everything --need to integrate it with OpsGenie, PagerDuty, Teams, Slack or something else? No problem, there's probably a ready-made integration for that already.

Part 25: Backups matter

Can you monitor your backups with Zabbix? Of course you can -- and you should! By day, I am a monitoring tech lead in a global cyber security company. By night, I monitor my home with Zabbix & Grafana and do some weird experiments with them. Welcome to my blog about this project.

Some time ago Zabbix blog had an excellent read about how to backup Zabbix. While I'm next time coming up with something Completely Else in this blog, this week I wanted to remind you about backups.

Part 24: Measure real-time power consumption

Can you monitor Finland's total real-time power consumption with Zabbix? Of course you can! By day, I am a monitoring tech lead in a global cyber security company. By night, I monitor my home with Zabbix & Grafana and do some weird experiments with them. Welcome to my blog about this project.
