We are on the start of new project with many requirements for external systems integrations.
One of them is integration with Zabbix for device association and using temperature sensors side-by-side with DCE. I mean that part of data is provided by DCE and other part by Zabbix.
Is it possible with ETL?

Collecting temperature sensors values and pushing them to DCO? Yes, we can do that! 😀
Of course we need to find the best way to extract these values from Zabbix (web service, CSV file exchange...et) on a regular basis.

Thanks for reply! I'm new with ETL but assume that it can be done. And what about devices? Can we associate devices from Zabbix and push some measurements and statuses/alarms? Is it limited by 14 types of measurements (highlighted bold on ETL support page) from MEASUREMENT_CLASS table?

Yes it is limited to some measurement, and not all of the 14 types listed are available. This type of integration is not meant to display monitoring information but too use them logically (cooling simulation, power capacity...etc). If you really need to display some extra values, you can always push them as custom properties. Arms are also available, but should just be used for information. Since we talk here about batch process (scheduled, not on demand) integration, the data exchange will be done every X minutes so you won't get alarms to be displayed on the DCO screen in a few seconds after they are generated in the monitoring system.
