how bout this,

i can open a conf line for the presentation.
i can definitly record it for yous all, and send out a url for the 
presentation files.

but in short,

zabbix is a one way solution
clients send data to mon_server
mon_server dont know nuttin about nuttin, and if any metric changes it 
will react based on whatever trigger you defined

hyperic requires two way comms, (unless you want to pay $45 per 
monitored) host
