Hi,

We all know it's really hard to get good pricing and cost information.

Please share what you can so you can help your peers.

There is a license cost. 


You pay for the support and professional services. Getting such a service helps implement Zabbix with the best practice and upgrade's in the future. 


Unlike other tools, you don't worry about the number of devices being monitored as this is free with Zabbix

The solution is free to use but they offer support as a paid service. If you can go read the manuals and do the fine-tuning based on your needs, you do not need to pay anything and you will have a full solution.

The pricing is very reasonable. Zabbix is very cheap. Compared to other tools like Nagios and others, Zabbix is very cheap.

There is no license but we need to pay for support. Zabbix is an open-source solution.

There is a license required for this solution and we pay annually for our license.

The solution is free. However, many open-sourced tools start out free but eventually start charging, I hope this solution stays free.

Its licensing is fair. It seems to be much cheaper than others.

This is an open-source solution that can be used free of charge.

We were searching for an open source solution and Zabbix fit the bill because it is free and open source under the GPL license.

We use a free community version of the solution. We don't have to pay for licensing.

The solution itself is open source and doesn't cost anything, however, many companies need technical expertise for configurations.

Zabbix is free but if you use it in production then you have to pay for it. It is not expensive if you compare it to something like the Amazon monitoring system. Also, it is an open-source product, although some features are available at an extra cost.

Zabbix is open-source so if one wishes to implement it in-house, they must have qualified professionals to set up and optimize databases, Linux/Unix OS, PHP, Apache, and depending on what is monitored, a full-stack network and systems administrator may be needed. Zabbix provides support too, and I hear they are doing great with their support.

This solution is completely open-source, so it is quite affordable.

The software itself is open source, it can be easily downloaded, and use it with no limitations. Be very careful about using the "appliance" configuration in a production environment. It is only suitable for evaluation or very small environments. Invest in support, training and consultancy from Zabbix or from third parties. Architecting a robust, resilient and secure monitoring platform from day 1 will save time and money at a later stage. Zabbix and 3rd parties offer far more than a traditional support contract. No other organisation in my experience includes pro-active and on-site support as a core part of their offerings.

There are no additional costs. There was a small cost because after the installation. This is not an expensive solution. Zabbix is cheaper, it's not too fancy.

The licensing is great on Zabbix. It's very flexible and great for various types of businesses.

We purchased Zabbix for a good price, including support. It's cheaper than Datadog and ScienceLogic.

Make a POC, start simple and let it grow. The servers are created with good performance by design. Memory for the caching, both on the database as on the zabbix server are important.

This is definitely a free software (it's open source), and You just need to allocate some resources to launch it

It's open source, so no cost/licensing needed.
