Zabbix
This page describes StackState version 4.1.
The StackState 4.1 version range is End of Life (EOL) and no longer supported. We encourage customers still running the 4.1 version range to upgrade to a more recent release.

What is the Zabbix StackPack?

The Zabbix StackPack is used to create a near real time synchronization with your Zabbix instance.

Prerequisites

The following prerequisites need to be met:
  • StackState Agent V2 must be installed on a single machine which can connect to Zabbix and StackState.
  • A Zabbix instance must be running.
NOTE: Zabbix versions 3 and 4 are supported.

Enable Zabbix integration

To enable the Zabbix check and begin collecting data from your Zabbix instance:
  1. 1.
    Edit the Agent integration configuration file /etc/sts-agent/conf.d/zabbix.d/conf.yaml to include details of your Zabbix instance:
    • url
    • username
    • password - use secrets management to store passwords outside of the configuration file.

      Copied!
  2. 2.
    Restart the StackState Agent(s) to publish the configuration changes.
  3. 3.
    Once the Agent is restarted, wait for the Agent to collect the data and send it to StackState.
