Zabbix Vs Cacti


Hello,
I have been Cacti for about a years now to collect and graph data about our servers (mainly CPU, memory, SIP trunks, etc.). We are considering switching to Zabbix for a more complete solution and I am trying to determine if it is a better fit. Since our data collection focuses more on server statistics and less on network devices, would Zabbix be more appropriate?

Can anybody help me with a full comparison and HOW TOs in order to start testing Zabbix on my virtual machine?

Thanks in Advance!

Either will work fine, but it depends on what you mean by 'server statistics', since network performance IS a part of your server performance. Cacti is based on RRDTOOL, so you could graph ANYTHING you wanted to.

No, why don't you look it up yourself, since Google can lead you to many results? We aren't going to do a side-by-side comparison for you, write it up, and give you a how-to guide.

Better...why don't you just go install Zabbix, and try it out?

Thanks dude for the reply!
Actually I'm trying to monitor SIP trunks (number of ports H323/SIP) And I will take your advise to deploy it on VM and see ..

Any extra info will be appreciated!
