Sematext vs Zabbix

Zabbix is an open-source solution. OSS feels free, but there are always hidden costs. The total cost of ownership could be higher than some SaaS platforms. With Sematext, you can gain true visibility into your infrastructure without spending a fortune.

Sematext vs Zabbix Pricing

Zabbix is open-source, which means that it's free to install and use. That doesn't mean that it's a zero-cost solution. It's hard to calculate exactly how much running Zabbix would cost you, but the cost of ownership can rack up the monthly overhead. You have to pay employees or contractors for ongoing maintenance and management. You have to pay them for upgrades to stay up to date. You have to pay for the infrastructure and for Zabbix support.

Sematext, on the other hand, offers a complete, out-of-the-box experience that costs you nothing more than the cost of the monthly plan. You can upgrade, downgrade, or cancel at any time, and you have the constant support of our experts to make sure your operations run smoothly. It requires no additional infrastructure. There is nothing to install, manage, or upgrade other than a tiny agent.

Easy to Configure Alerts

Alerts are essential for any monitoring tool. They should be simple to configure and should integrate with your favorite 3rd party service notification channels without a hitch. At least, that's what we believe at Sematext.

With Sematext, there are many ways to setup alerts. On select components, all you have to do is click the alert icon in the top right corner. For Apps, it's just as easy: click on the alert icon at the top right.
