At my current work I am also introducing zabbix monitoring. I chose zabbix at my previous work because I like the approach: measure a lot of values and store those, and next you decide whether to draw graphs or run triggers based on those values. Monitoring, graphing and alerting in one system.

The installation of the zabbix agent got puppetized instantly. I found out the rpm from epel leaves a few things to fix, so puppet to the rescue to fix that on installation. By simply configuring those fixes to depend on the package and to notify the service the start of the service will be postponed until those fixes have been done and the agent will start correctly.

Firewall on the monitored machines still needs to be fixed by hand, this is still a problem. Bringing the firewall under puppet control would be great, but that is quite a project.
