Welcome from Mastering Job Arranger for Zabbix!

A place where you can learn how to design and deploy 'Job Arranger For Zabbix' for small-medium-large size deployments.

What is Job Arranger for Zabbix?

Job Arranger for Zabbix (JAZ) is free and open source job scheduling software.
It is a third-party tool for Zabbix.

What can I do?

Certainly most kind of infrastructure automation is possible.
