Access the Zabbix server dashboard and add the Linux computer running the Docker service as a Host.
Open your browser and enter the IP address of your web server plus /zabbix.
In our example, the following URL was entered in the Browser:
On the login screen, use the default username and default password.
• Default Username: Admin

After a successful login, you will be sent to the Zabbix Dashboard.
On the dashboard screen, access the Configuration menu and select the Host option.
On the top right of the screen, click on the Create host button.
Enter the following information:
• Host Name - Enter a Hostname to identify the Docker server.
• Visible Hostname - Repeat the hostname.
• Group - Select the name of a group to identify similar devices.
• Interfaces - Enter the IP address of the Linux server.
Here is the new image with our configuration.
Next, we need to associate the host to a monitoring template.
Access the Templates tab on the top of the screen.
Click on the Select button and locate the template named: Template App Docker
Click on the Add button.
After a few minutes, you will be able to see the initial result on the Zabbix Dashboard.
In order to test your configuration, access the Monitoring menu, and click on the Hosts option.
Find your server and click on the Screens option.
Zabbix will display the graphics available to monitor the Docker service and its containers.
Congratulations! You have configured the Zabbix server to monitor a Docker server.
