    We do not support the installation of any 3rd party software. If your customer decides to install this and a case is opened due to an issue after the agent has been installed, there is a high probability that they will be asked to remove the agent before Support will look at the issue reported. This is an industry standard position. 

    I would suggest starting with setting up their system events.  We have a few performance related system events that can be configured. You can find that here.  - https://docs.imperva.com/bundle/v12.6-administration-guide/page/6819.htm

    Instead of installing the Zabbix agent, can you configure Zabbix to do snmp polling?
    SNMP can be enabled on the appliances. 

    Upgrading to SecureSphere v14.2 will disable snmp, and v14.2 has a different way to configure SNMP.  
    It's in a knowledge base article - SNMP--Do Imperva On-Premises appliances support SNMPv3

    @Christopher Detzel   @Robert Miller Thanks for your answers.

    I will do some configurations as follow:
        1. SNMP Polling SNMP--Do Imperva On-Premises appliances support SNMPv3
        2. System Events Alert :   POLICT > ActionSets ; POLICY > SystemEvents
        3. Modify the python syslog script:  https://github.com/imperva/mx-toolbox/tree/master/performance-monitoring
