4 Events


Events in Zabbix are generated by three sources:

  • triggers - whenever a trigger changes its status
  • discovery - upon detection of hosts or services
  • auto registration - when active agents are auto-registered by server

Events are time-stamped and can be the basis of actions such as sending notification e-mail etc.

To view details of events in the frontend, go to Monitoring | Events. There you can click on the event date and time to view details of an event.

More information is available on each event source.
