comment Zabbix names discovered hosts with IP instead of hostname
Did you tried setting Hostname directly instead of HostnameItem?

comment Disadvantages of current condition monitoring and failure prediction system
Cacti can't help there at all for sure. I can think of something which runs on top of Graphite and check various metrics for anomalies which sometimes show current problems and sometimes near \ far future ones but all such software is very complex to setup and to adjust so I've seen it applied only to business metrics in production, when you want to monitor free disk space better to do it directly rather than relying on some black box with many knobs.

comment zabbix external check for application monitoring
It's better to use cron and just catch exit code of the task (call zabbix_sender within it for example). For case something is really wrong and no exit code being sent just set nodata trigger for a hour.

comment Zabbix: How can I monitor whether remote commands are enabled?
You have to deliver /etc/zabbix/conf.d/somefile.conf to them once and restart zabbix-agent service, that's true.

Sometimes NFS server isn't yours and you want to monitor client experience.

comment Zabbix-agent unreachable
Something strange so, your zabbix server does the same if it's connecting by DNS\IP by port 10050 to zabbix agent — recheck your interfaces.

And check sudo service zabbix-agent restart output, zabbix-agent logs.

comment Zabbix-agent unreachable
To check from zabbix-server do telnet client_dns_or_ip 10050 and then ask for agent.version, and check the difference on working and non-working machine - probably it won't connect at all to broken one.

Zabbix trigger dependencies are strange.

comment Choosing a monitoring system for a dynamically scaling environment: Nagios v. Zabbix
Another thought: Ruby zabbixapi plus Puppet custom functions make it possible to create host in zabbix if it's not there, it's a good solution if you already puppetized your infrastructure.

comment Choosing a monitoring system for a dynamically scaling environment: Nagios v. Zabbix
Zabbix features for auto registration really poor, but they exists and may fit someone's needs. Apparently there is not much information across Internet about anyone using this feature, so almost all information you can get is in this manual.
