Zabbix SIA is proud to announce the availability of Zabbix 1.8.2.

Zabbix is an enterprise-class open source distributed monitoring solution. Zabbix is released under the GPL, thus it is free of charge for both commercial and non-commercial use. A complete text of the license is available at http://www.gnu.org/copyleft/gpl.txt.

This document contains the release notes for Zabbix 1.8.2.

This release fixes numerous issues of Zabbix 1.8 and introduces new interesting features. A nice overview of the new features is at http://www.zabbix.com/documentation/1.8/manual/about/what_s_new_1.8.2. It is highly recommended to upgrade!

If you are using Zabbix 1.8 with node-based distributed setup, please run the following SQL patch. It should improve performance of configuration syncing a lot.

MySQL:
DROP INDEX node_cksum_1 ON node_cksum;
CREATE INDEX node_cksum_1 on node_cksum (nodeid,cksumtype,tablename,recordid);

ORACLE:
DROP INDEX node_cksum_1;
CREATE INDEX node_cksum_1 on node_cksum (nodeid,cksumtype,tablename,recordid);

PostgreSQL:
DROP INDEX node_cksum_1;
CREATE INDEX node_cksum_1 on node_cksum (nodeid,cksumtype,tablename,recordid);

The following sections describe the release in details and provide late-breaking or other information that supplements its main documentation.

What's New in 1.8.2

:: Dashboard filtering

Dashboard supports filtering based on host groups, trigger severities and host maintenance status.

:: Improved speed of synchronization for distributed setups

It works much faster especially for larger setups.

:: New option for host mass update

Template "replace" option added for easier maintenance of template linkages.

:: Improved performance of Zabbix front-end

Better performance and lower memory usage introduced for many front-end screens.

:: Added support of time shifted functions

Now some trigger functions (min, max, avg, and other) functions support optional time shift. Use it and make your triggers and logic much smarter!

:: Added Ukrainian translation

We welcome all Ukrainian users!

:: Added time-based disabling of data collection on item level

Default interval of '0' with flexible intervals may be used to enable data collection within specific time periods only.

:: Support of suffixes in trigger expressions

Triggers expressions and functions support s,m,h,d,w,T suffixes.

:: Enhanced screen element "Status of triggers"

It supports optional filtering by a selected host or a host group.

:: Added support of multiple host groups for aggregate checks

A list of host groups can be passed as a parameter to aggregate checks.

:: Better permissions on actions

Administrators have access only to users they share user groups with.

:: The database is down message is supported for all DB engines

Now Zabbix correctly processes unavailability of the database engine. It works for Oracle, PostgreSQL and MySQL.

:: XML import and export of screens and maps

Finally we have a way of managing screens and maps based on XML data.

:: Added information about maintenance to the Dashboard

The Latest Issues widget provides information about host maintenance status.

:: Better time navigation

Time navigation bars moved to the top of the pages with hide option.

:: Enhanced control of housekeeper settings

A new parameter MaxHousekeeperDelete was introduced to allow much more flexible control over housekeeper behaviour.

:: Zabbix sender supports reading of data from standard input

A new command line option enables reading of performance and availability data from standard input.
