Network maps can now be referenced on the frontend not only by id, but also by name, just like screens in 1.8.4. Adding GET parameter mapname will open the map with that name, for example:
If both sysmapid (network map ID) and mapname are specified, mapname has higher priority.
If mapname parameter is used, selected network map won't be saved in user profile - that is, revisiting map section later will retrieve previously chosen map, not the one referenced by name.
Zapcat compatibility switch, added in 1.8.4, has been removed. Instead, expression parser has been reworked to accept Zapcat syntax by default.
Sequence of configuration menu entries Discovery and IT services was changed to match the one in monitoring section.
Zabbix agent performance has been improved, especially on systems with many cores.
Zabbix agent now prints internal process types upon startup just like the server does. Example Zabbix agent daemon startup log:
943:20110224:111750.848 agent #0 started [collector] 943:20110224:111750.848 agent #1 started [listener] 943:20110224:111750.850 agent #2 started [listener] 943:20110224:111750.851 agent #3 started [listener] 943:20110224:111750.851 agent #4 started [active checks]
New internal item was added to monitor Zabbix process state. Item zabbix[process,<type>,<mode>,<state>] allows to monitor busy or idle percentage of different Zabbix server processes over the last minute.
It is now possible to determine how much each of Zabbix server internal processes spent in a busy state. This should help with evaluating performance, estimating how many poller processes to use and other Zabbix finetuning tasks.
Zabbix daemon internal process limits have been changed. These changes affect Zabbix server and proxy daemons.
|Option||Previous limit||New limit|
For Zabbix agent daemon, maximum value of StartAgents has been increased from 16 to 100.
Support for listening on all IPv4 and IPv6 addresses at the same time has been added.
Global (user definable) regular expression support has been added for use with Zabbix proxies.
Added Ubuntu upstart configuration files.
Several new trigger functions have been added.
