2.4 appliance swap/memory

Hello,

Will you please identify any incorrect statements:

1. I downloaded the zabbix OVF appliance at Zabbix_2.4_x86_64_13.1.x86_64-2.4.1

2. I installed the appliance onto VMWare ESXi 5.1

3. I accepted the default values (including 60 GB hard disk space and
512 MB RAM)

4. When zabbix came up, the "map" showed that the zabbix server
complained about a lack of swap space

5. After browsing the GUI for a few minutes system memory was
exhausted and zabbix stopped working

6. The zabbix appliance Zabbix_2.4_x86_64_13.1.x86_64-2.4.1.ovf is
unable to run for more than a few minutes “out of the box”

Of course I can go in and tinker with virtual swap disks, memory, etc,
but my inclination is to first get to “root cause” of the problem…
e.g. did I not properly install the appliance (likely) or Zabbix
produces an ovf that simply doesn’t work (unlikely).

Thank you,

Chris

Unreachable Windows 2012R2 agent (irregular)

Hello,

We are monitoring a few Windows 2012R2 servers (agent version is 2.4.1) 
and sometimes the Zabbix server (Debian Wheezy w/ 2.4.1) reports these 
agents as «unreachable» even though the Zabbix server is on the same 
network as the Windows servers.

All are VMware virtual machines on the same cluster.

We use IPv6 (dual-stack), we tried forcing «Server», «Listen» and 
«Source» with IPv4 addresses on the agent configuration, we also 
disabled power management on the (virtual) network card and none of that 
improved the situation.

We cannot understand why the agents are sometimes unreachable. The 
ICMPv4/ICMPv6 tests are OK.

Any idea on this issue is welcomed.

Thanks,

Nicolas

Need to use "net.tcp.service[tcp, , 443]" with IPv6 addresses

Hello,

I'm currently deploying Zabbix 2.4.0 in a dual-stack environment, for 
each host I create an entry with the IPv4 an another with the IPv6. The 
Zabbix server runs on Debian Wheezy.

Apparently, the default "App HTTPS Service" template is not willing to 
check on IPv6 addresses with "net.tcp.service[https]", no packet are send.

I need to use "net.tcp.service[tcp,,443]" instead. It's not a big deal 
but I'm curious to know why I need to specify the port number.

Thanks,

Nicolas

My custom trigger doesn't seem to fire.

Hi everyone.

I have tried to make a trigger for the case when not all services (on Windows) that are automatically started are in this state (minus the ones I have to ignore)

It looks like this, presently:


I have $WIN_SVC_IGNORE defined on my test host with a value of sppsvc, and that part works fine.
If I shut down an automatic service, such as VeamInstallerService, this is shown in my item, but the trigger doesn't mail me, and indeed does not even fire.
I tried having <>"0" previously, but that was not accepted.

My corresponding Zabbix agent (active) check is simply:
services[automatic,stopped,"{$WIN_SVC_IGNORE}"]

And returns the values I would expect. I have it defined as 'Text'.
What am I missing here?

Do any of you have another way of alerting about services that should run but do not on Windows?

Unexpected messages from Zabbix

One of our admins is in the process of setting up a new server.  Part of this process is to install the server in Zabbix.

He did this out-of-order, in that the server was created, but not finished (ie:  Apache wasn't running), and then set it up in Zabbix.

We started getting messages that Apache wasn't running.  Nothing strange about this so far.

After a few days of these messages he then disabled monitoring the server totally.  However, we are still getting notifications once every 12 hours.

The conditions on the action are:

Maintenance status not in "maintenance"
Trigger value = "PROBLEM"


Is this a bug?  If not, what would be causing this?

This is Zabbix 2.0.4, running on a CentOS 6 system, with 4 CPUs, 4 gig of memory and mysql

Thanks in advance

Re: Auto-Register by DNS name

Hi!

My servers has the same hostname than dns name.
I solved this using a script that change the 'interface' table, to set useip to '0' and get the name of host in table 'hosts'.

Here I set the column 'useip' to 0, this make zabbix use 'DNS' name of host to monitor, the except is because the server didn't the same hostname:

UPDATE interface i,hosts h
SET    i.useip = '0'
WHERE  i.hostid = h.hostid
       AND i.ip <> '127.0.0.1'
       AND i.dns IS NOT NULL
       AND h.name NOT LIKE 'ftp-server%'

And here, I get the 'name' of the host in 'hosts' tables and set in 'dns' column in 'interface' table:
-----------------------------------------------
UPDATE interface i,hosts h 
SET    i.dns = h.name 
WHERE  i.hostid = h.hostid 
       AND i.dns <> h.name
       AND i.ip <> '127.0.0.1'
       AND h.name NOT LIKE 'ftp-server%'


So, to view the result I used this:

SELECT h.hostid,i.useip,i.ip,h.name,h.host,i.dns
FROM hosts AS h
INNER JOIN interface AS i 
ON (h.hostid = i.hostid);

This work for me, I'm studing how to do this automatically when host is add.

Thanks for the help guys!! =D

Well, if you use the dns name instead of the ip address, and if the TTL on the DNS entries is short enough, wouldn't that take care of it for you?

Hello!

I have a zabbix server with a lot of servers monitoring and using active-check to auto-registration.

My problem is that auto-registration is using a IP address to connect with servers, but sometimes my servers changes the IP address and the monitoring was broken.

All of my server has a fixed DNS name, and them don't change, so there's someway to make zabbix include the servers using DNS in auto-registration by default ?

Thanks!

Random outages on Zabbix graphs


Hello
 
I have some long term issue on 1 of my zabbix server that there are interruptions in the graphs.
 
http://i60.tinypic.com/35ixjev.jpg
 
It's related to the Zabbix server because the graphs get interrupted at the same time eg.:
server1s cpu usage, ups1 load, ping to server2. This is a small network with not too many events however the
Zabbix server itself runs in vmware.
 
What I did was to move it's mysql database to another machine, the issue still exist, randomly there are
outages in the graphs, so it's not because the database would be overloaded.
 
How should I proceed to debug this what causing the issue?
 
Zabbix is running with default configuration, no tunings are made in the configs.
 
Thanks

Disable Initial Status Alert

Hi,

I've configured Zabbix(2.2.3) server with Debian GNU/Linux 7 in AWS and 'Auto Registration' is configured with it. So when new machine is added to the zabbix server to get it monitored, Zabbix server at once sends Alerts with 'OK' status with the checks associated with the new instance. Is it possible to disable this initial Triggers, as more than 1 instance will be added up to get monitored and numerous mails will be received at once with 'OK' status.

~Thanks
Joe

Zabbix server crash due to lib-curl NULL-pointer dereference in http poller

Hello List,

Just FYI:

Old libcurl3-gnutls before "V7.37.0 - May 21 2014" (e.g. Ubuntu Trusty
pool/main/c/curl/libcurl3-gnutls_7.35.0-1ubuntu2_i386.deb) is prone to
NULL-deref, taking the whole zabbix_server process down when doing
web-scenario tests on an Apache 2.4 server with SSL, wildcard-certificate,
intermediate-chain and SNI.

Workaround: disable SSL tests on newer servers while not fixed.
