This AEM-Zabbix Monitoring Demo package contains a configured and running Zabbix that will connect to a local instance of your running AEM Author. Once running, you can look around Zabbix and observe the dashboard as it monitors your AEM instance. From the dashboard, you can a live scrape of your Author instance, useable disk space, memory allocation and a few more monitored items. You can also trigger events and notifications and watch how the dashboard will alert you of any issues and problems.
For this monitoring package to work, we need a default local installation of AEM Author listening to port 4502. We also need to start AEM to listen to port 9091 for the JMX agent.

This added start-up parameters will need to be added to your start script (/crx-quickstart/bin/start).
