It can discover all kind of networking devices using different methods, check machine states and applications, sending pre-defined alarm messages and visualize complex data correlations.
If you want to use the Zabbix server with MariaDB, install AUR from the AUR. For PostgreSQL as database backend, you should use AUR. You may edit the PKGBUILDs when you plan to use Nginx as web-server, since by default they have a and dependency.
Symlink the Zabbix web application directory to your http document root, e.g.:
ln -s /usr/share/webapps/zabbix /var/www
Make sure to adjust following variables to these minimal values in your
post_max_size = 16M max_execution_time = 300 max_input_time = 300 date.timezone = "UTC" extension=sockets.so
In this example, we create on localhost a MariaDB database called
zabbix for the user
zabbix identified by the password
test and then import the database templates. This connection will be later used by the Zabbix server and web application:
mysql -u root -p -e "create database zabbix" mysql -u root -p -e "grant all on zabbix.* to zabbix@localhost identified by 'test'" gunzip /usr/share/zabbix-server-mysql/*.sql.gz mysql -u zabbix -p zabbix < /usr/share/zabbix-server-mysql/schema.sql mysql -u zabbix -p zabbix < /usr/share/zabbix-server-mysql/images.sql mysql -u zabbix -p zabbix < /usr/share/zabbix-server-mysql/data.sql
To enable the and start server process, run:
systemctl enable zabbix-server systemctl start zabbix-server
Finally you can access Zabbix via your local web server, e.g.: http://127.0.0.1/zabbix , finish the installation wizard and access the frontend the first time. The default username is Admin and password zabbix.
See appendix for a link to the official documentation, which explains all further steps in using it.
Agent (Client) Installation
Currently, the server package already includesAUR, so you don't have to install this package on your monitoring server. However, for monitoring targets, the client part is more minimal, standalone and easy to deploy, just install AUR.
Simply edit the zabbix_agentd.conf and replace the server variable with the IP of your monitoring server. Only servers from this/these IP will be allowed to access the agent.
To enable and start the agent, run:
systemctl enable zabbix-agentd systemctl start zabbix-agentd
