1 Items supported by platform

The table displays support for Zabbix agent items on various platforms:

  • Items marked with “X” are supported, the ones marked with “-” are not supported.
  • If an item is marked with “?”, it is not known whether it is supported or not.
  • If an item is marked with “r”, it means that it requires root privileges.
  • If a parameter is marked with “i”, it means that it is ignored.
  • Parameters that are included in angle brackets <like_this> are optional.

Windows-only Zabbix agent items are not included in this table.

(1) These values for these items are not supported for loopback interfaces on Solaris systems up to and including Solaris 10 6/06 as byte, error and utilisation statistics are not stored and/or reported by the kernel. However, if you're monitoring a Solaris system via net-snmp, values may be returned as net-snmp carries legacy code from the cmu-snmp dated as old as 1997 that, upon failing to read byte values from the interface statistics returns the packet counter (which does exist on loopback interfaces) multiplied by an arbitrary value of 308. This makes the assumption that the average length of a packet is 308 octets, which is a very rough estimation as the MTU limit on Solaris systems for loopback interfaces is 8232 bytes.

These values should not be assumed to be correct or even closely accurate. They are guestimates. The Zabbix agent does not do any guess work, but net-snmp will return a value for these fields.
