Zabbix Polling

The Zabbix Polling integration enables Moogsoft AIOps to collect event data from one or more Zabbix systems.

Refer to the Zabbix Polling LAM Reference to see the integration's default properties. When you use the integrations UI, you can only configure the visible properties.

If you want to implement a more complex Zabbix Polling LAM with custom settings, see Configure the Zabbix Polling LAM .

See the Zabbix documentation for details on Zabbix components.

Before You Begin

The Zabbix Polling integration has been validated with Zabbix v3.2. Before you start to set up the integration, ensure you have met the following requirements for each Zabbix server:

  • You have the API URL of the Zabbix server.
  • You have credentials to connect to the Zabbix server.
  • The port for your Zabbix server is open and accessible from Moogsoft AIOps.

Optionally you can provide the following:

  • A minimum severity for events you want to fetch from the Zabbix server.
  • The types of event you want to fetch and names of the host groups, hosts, applications and triggers.
  • A request interval and retry interval time in seconds. Defaults to 60 seconds.
  • An overlap time in seconds to ensure Moogsoft AIOp does not miss any valid events. Defaults to 10 seconds.
  • The length of time to wait for a request to complete before timing out. Defaults to 120 seconds.

Configure the Zabbix Polling Integration

You can configure the Zabbix Polling integration in Moogsoft AIOps as follows:

  1. Navigate to the Integrations tab.
  2. Click Zabbix (Polling) in the Monitoring section.
  3. Follow the instructions to create an integration name and supply the connection information for Zabbix.

See Configure the Zabbix Polling LAM for advanced configuration information.

If the integration fails to connect to one or more Zabbix sources, Moogsoft AIOps creates an alert and writes the details to the process log. Refer to the Logging details for LAMs and integrations for more information.

Configure Zabbix

You do not need to perform any integration-specific steps on your Zabbix systems. After you configure the integration, it polls your Zabbix servers at regular intervals to collect event data (every 60 seconds by default).

If the integration fails to connect to one or more Zabbix sources, Moogsoft AIOps creates an alert and writes the details to the process log. Refer to the Logging details for LAMs and integrations for more information.
