Zabbix logo (27 pix)Versie 2.0.0 van Zabbix is uitgekomen. Met dit programma kan de status van netwerkservices, servers en andere netwerkapparatuur in de gaten gehouden worden. Op zichzelf kan het programma alleen simpele informatie weergeven, maar door het installeren van een zogeheten agent op de server kan er ook gedetailleerdere info worden verkregen. Meer informatie over Zabbix kan op deze pagina worden gevonden en hier staan enkele screenshots. Een uitgebreid overzicht van de veranderingen in versie 2.0.0 kan in de Zabbix wiki worden gevonden; dit is een korte samenvatting van de nieuwe functionaliteit:

Added direct SNMP trap monitoring
New SNMP trap monitoring provides high performance way of collecting traps, pre-processors such as SNMPTT could be used as well.

Support of automatic selection of map icons
Maps and map elements could be optionally configured to automaticall select icons depending on element type (for example: host, network device, switch, etc).

Optional expanding of macros in map editing
Added new option in map configuration which enables macros expanding.

Host profiles renamed to inventory
Host profiles were renamed to a more standard "host inventory".

Performance improvements
Trigger related data is cached to reduce number of database requests, it improves overall performance of Zabbix Server.

New set of default templates
Existing default templates were improved to take advantage of low level discovery, also added new templates.

Automatic collection of host profile data
Information about hardware and software details can be automatically retrieved by Zabbix Agent and extended using user-defined parameters.

Enhanced auto-discovery
Added discovery based on HTTPS and Telnet checks, discovery configuration form is redesigned.

WEB monitoring by proxies
WEB scenarios could be monitored by remote proxies. It allows monitoring of WEB applications from various geographical locations.

Support of visible host and template name
In addition to standart host name, visible host name can be set to be displayed everywhere in the front-end. Additional macros for visible host name are also introduced.

Advanced options for remote commands
Remote commands (Agent, IPMI and SSH based) can be configured in a more flexible yet easier way.

Remote JMX monitoring
Zabbix JMX monitoring allows native secure remote monitoring of Java applications and popular middlewares such as JBoss, WebSphere and WebLogic.

Boolean data type
Boolean data type can be used for monitoring of two state metrics and JMX counters having boolean type.

New set of icons
New set of map icons is available for creation of great looking maps.

Support of new macros
Added support for {IPADDRESS}, {HOST.DNS} and {HOST.CONN} macros in trigger names. Macros {ITEM.ID} and {TRIGGER.EXPRESSION} can be used for notifications.

Unified host profiles
Normal and extended host profiles merged. Macros for referencing all profile fields introduced.

Multiple network interfaces
Multiple network interfaces can be assigned to a single host, therefore one host may have several IP addresses with different checks for each IP.

Better translation framework for WEB interface
Zabbix interface translations are handled by GNU gettext module.

Auto-registration with passive checks
Added support of monitoring auto-registered hosts with passive checks. It is very handy for monitoring of Cloud-like environments.

Re-design of unknown events and triggers
Unknown triggers and events will no longer be displayed in Zabbix WEB interface, a special flag will be shown if Zabbix is not confident about status of triggers or events.

Low level discovery
Zabbix is able to discover your file systems, network interfaces and SNMP interfaces automatically with no manual work. One template can be used for hosts having different devices. Lost resources could be automatically deleted based on configurable retention period.

Much faster processing of escalations
Processing of escalations has been improved to work more efficiantly.

Optional graph legends
Graph legend can be optionally disabled.

Templated host-level screens
Templates may contain screens for easy maintenance and quick access to a set of performance graphs. The screens are available via host popup available when clicking on a host.

Database integrity
There are significant improvements in the database schema for better consistency and security of configuration and historical data.

Nanosecond resolution for historical data
Zabbix supports nanosecond resolution for historical data. If you are migrating from 1.8.x the option will be off by default. It is on for fresh setups.

Multiple URLs for map elements
A map element may have multiple links (URLs) to external resources.

Support of user scripts on Zabbix Agent and IPMI-based commands
User scripts can be used to execute any command on a monitored host using Zabbix or IPMI agents.

Custom trigger severities
Standard trigger severities can be customized to have a different names and colors for displaying in Zabbix front-end.

New login screen
The login screen was re-designed to have a better look.

New design for all configuration forms
The new forms has much better look and usability.

Advanced labels setting for maps
Label formats can be individually configured for different types of map elements on map level.

Remembering of map grid options
Zabbix front-end will save grid-options for each map. Map import/export is extended to support new grid-related attributes.

Automatic filling of DNS name for discovered devices
Zabbix will automatically fill in DNS names of newly discovered and auto-registered devices.

Export of events to CSV
Events visible in Zabbix front-end can be exported to a CSV file with a mouse click.

Support of SQLite3 for use on server-side
SQLite3 can be used on Zabbix Server side and works also with Zabbix front-end. Might be useful for embedded environments and low profile hardware.

Advanced filtering supported by Zabbix API
Two new options (ALL, ANY) can be used to control filtering on API level.

Host area functionality for maps
All host group elements can be displayed in a map area.

Support of disabling media types
Media types can be optionally disabled.

Support of vm.memory.size
The item is now supported for various platforms including BSD.

Not supported items are handled nicely by Proxies
The processing was improved so that proxies will report to the server about not supported items.

More flexible dependencies
Dependency from template to host is supported.

Daar zitten een aantal mooie nieuwe features bij, maar eens op de test omgeving loslaten.
balen, heb net 1.8 volledig draaien en geconfigureerd.

nu vraag ik me af. wat is beter? een niewe install en alle xml's importeren? of gewoon de upgrade procedure volgen. Nanosecond resolution for historical data lijk me niet echt spannend.
Gewoon upgraden :)
Kan natuurlijk even duren als je omgeving groot is, maar is de meest efficiŽnte/praktische optie. Op die manier ben je ook je trends/history niet kwijt.
Database van 8GB met items was hier in 10 minuten geŁpgrade dus dat is vrij snel gepiept. Het lijkt ook prima te werken i.c.m. met oudere nodes dus je hoeft niet big bang alles in ťťn keer te doen.
Ik ga zelf een nieuwe database aanleggen, waarschijnlijk genaamd "zabbix2" (da's nog waar ook :P), daar de meest recente backup naartoe restoren, en dan de zabbix2 database upgraden en gebruiken. Als er dan onverhoopt toch iets mocht tegenvallen, kan ik terugvallen op mijn oude database. Uiteraard test ik eerst of 't allemaal werkt, maar je weet maar nooit.
DB is hier iets van 20GB, 4 QC Xeons, 28GB geheugen, RAID10 15k SAS schijven.
<edit> waar ik het meest op zit te wachten en weet dat het er is:
- SNMP trap
- JMX monitoring
Waar ik van hoop dat het er is:
- sorteren op elke kolomkop die er is
- export / import van users
- betere voorbeeldtemplates waar ik wat van kan leren
