Create Zabbix Droplet


Zabbix is an enterprise-class open source distributed monitoring solution designed to monitor and track performance and availability of network servers, devices, services and other IT resources. Zabbix is an all-in-one monitoring solution that allows users to collect, store, manage and analyze information received from IT infrastructure, as well as display on-screen, and alert by e-mail, SMS or Jabber when thresholds are reached. Zabbix allows administrators to recognize server and device problems within a short period of time and therefore reduces the system downtime and risk of system failure. The monitoring solution is being actively used by SMBs and large enterprises across all industries and almost in every country of the world.

Getting started after deploying Zabbix

After the deployment of the Zabbix One-Click application as a new droplet, please check your e-mail where you find an e-mail message from DigitalOcean with your root login credentials to newly created Zabbix server. Login in to your Zabbix server via SSH using those login credentials. In the prompt you should see Zabbix web interface username (Admin) and randomly generated password.

Then in a web browser go to https://YourDropletIP and login with Zabbix web interface username name and password.

API Creation

In addition to creating a Droplet from the Zabbix 1-Click App via the control panel, you can also use the DigitalOcean API.

As an example, to create a 4GB Zabbix Droplet in the SFO2 region, you can use the following curl command. You’ll need to either save your API access token to an environment variable or substitute it into the command below.

  curl -X POST -H 'Content-Type: application/json' \
       -H 'Authorization: Bearer '$TOKEN'' -d \
      '{"name":"choose_a_name","region":"sfo2","size":"s-2vcpu-4gb","image":"zabbix-7-6"}' \
