6 Host templates

Use of templates is an excellent way of making maintenance of Zabbix much easier.

A template can be linked to a number of hosts. Items, triggers and graphs of the template will be automatically added to the linked hosts. Change definition of a template item (trigger, graph) and the change will be automatically applied to the hosts.

Host template attributes:

ParameterDescription

Groups List of host groups the template belongs to.
New group Assign new host group to the template.
Link with template Used to create hierarchical templates.
