With calculated items, you can create calculations based on other items. The values will be periodically calculated based on an arithmetical expression and done by the Zabbix server – nothing is performed on Zabbix agents or proxies.
SNMP traps report device failure very quickly, what increases server, services, and application availability. Receiving SNMP Traps in Zabbix is easy. In just a couple of minutes, your instance will be ready to receive, process and react any incoming trap.
What are the different ways you can use Zabbix preprocessing and why you should consider implementing it in your environment? Let’s take a brief look at how Zabbix preprocessing has evolved and the technical nuances of transforming and storing your preprocessed data.
Processing of XML documents were never as easy as now. Xpath preprocessing is available as a native functionality without any third party scripts or modules. Write your xpath query and use it against your XML document to extract desired value.
In latest release of Zabbix prometheus integration is available out of the box. It allows us to easily collect and parse metrics from collectors. Monitor them independently or create low level discovery rules for dynamically changing environments.
With new preprocessing steps added to Zabbix in nearly every release, it became obvious that it’s impossible to predict every business case, so we had to come up with a universal solution. This, in turn, raised an important question – which embedded scripting language/engine to use.
As we have already mentioned earlier, there are new opportunities for mass data collection in the latest Zabbix version – Zabbix 3.4. Now let’s dwell on this functionality in more detail, and in order to make it more clear, we will tell about it in two examples:
