Howto install Zabbix 3.4


(Emiliano Vavassori) #41

I have never tried to do so, but I would love to test this also on my environment. Could be a big improvement.

Oh, and by the way I forgot… Great work, as usual :slight_smile:

(Markus Neuberger) #42

Yes, that’s possible.
You may also change the zabbix repo from 3.4 to 3.5 and reinstall to test the alpha release…

You are right, this would help a lot.

Thank you Andy…

I use Nagios to monitoring but I’m going to test this Zabbix on a VM.
I’ll use your tutorial, thanks for sharing.

(Markus Neuberger) #45

You may just install the zabbix module.

For nagios have a look here

Shouldn’t it also be on this page somewhere?


Good Work!

Regards Andy

Yes, you are right, I didn’t think about that, thank you.

Just to let you know:

I’ve updated the previous 4 Servers I was using to test your Zabbix Module.

And no, they aren’t really test servers, they are actual production servers!
OK, I’ve got everything covered with ProxMox Backups and the such, but one server is a native installation of NethServer. On that one, I don’t have everything doubly covered like on the other ones…

All are working as expected, the Backup-Tests are also working.

Now, to make them show up nicely somewhere on the Zabbix screen for that server…

Best Regards

Thank you, I was looking for something like this

During testing, I also tested if Zabbix is included in the standard duplicity backup - it doesn’t seem to be included.

How could this be done (Folders and DB) automagically?



(Markus Neuberger) #51

Hi Andy,

you are right, seems I missed the backup/restore :blush:

Zabbix saves anything relevant to its postgres database, so it should be enough to just backup that database or am I missing something?

I’ll provide an updated module asap…

Some docs about backup:

(André Wismer) #52



I’d save the DB, as well as the images folder / templates folder…

My 2 cents…


(Markus Neuberger) #53

New zabbix module update with included backup/restore, thanks to @Andy_Wismer

  • postgres db backup with backup-data
  • config backup: /etc/zabbix
  • data backup: /usr/share/zabbix, /usr/lib/zabbix

I put it to the wiki as suggested:

(André Wismer) #54

How do I update existing servers?

yum -y install nethserver-zabbix

Doesn’t update anything…



(Markus Neuberger) #55

To update this way you have to install the repo:

If it does not work, here is the direct download:

yum -y install

(André Wismer) #56

Thanks, that worked well - didn’t know you had a repo…
Somehow oversaw that info. :wink:

Great Work, Markus!

Good Morning,
I am getting download errors when trying to install this package.

(Markus Neuberger) #59

Sorry, the domain changed, see this thread

Please execute

yum -y install

to make the downloads work again.

(Vinit Makol) #60

It worked. Thanks!
