Watchdog includes Essential Alerts™ out of the box and takes less than a minute to install, while Zabbix takes all day to configure its legacy components and plugins. See how Watchdog stacks up.
Automatic Server Alerts Out of the Box
System admins don’t have time to investigate every little problem. But they need to be aware of issues that lead to downtime. Why spend precious time on something as common as server monitoring?
Let Watchdog guard your hardware — automatically — by installing our Smart Agent and get proactive alerts on:

Small and lightweight, Watchdog can be set up on all your servers in minutes thanks to its 23-second install
As a startup, you know you need to monitor your servers and apps, but you are also trying to bootstrap and trim costs where possible. Watchdog installs on all your systems for free, giving you zero-config Essential Alerts™ (CPU, memory, swap space, etc.) and Custom Alerts in minutes.
When your business is scaling to meet the demands of your customers, you need to ensure high uptime and availability for retention and loyalty. Watchdog takes only 23 seconds to install, and Custom Alerts are easy to configure on the fly.
Setting up Watchdog on existing large installations is easy because there is no config required to get Essential Alerts on even hundreds of servers.

Watchdog is fully featured for as many servers as you want. There are no user limitations, feature paywalls, data restrictions, update restraints, or alert throttling.
Watchdog runs entirely on your server. In fact, after installing the Blue Matador Smart Agent, your server detects hardware anomalies and generates the report metrics itself. And it does this with the amazingly low overhead that our Smart Agent provides (<2% CPU overhead, <2% memory usage, and 90% gzip compression).
