13.1.3 Suppressed warning messages about deprecated mysql extension

Before Zabbix 2.0.8, PHP version 5.5+ users would get a warning message about the mysql PHP extension being deprecated. Starting with Zabbix 2.0.8, warning messages about the deprecated mysql PHP extension are suppressed. Note: using the mysqli PHP extension becomes an official requirement in the next major Zabbix 2.2.0 version.

13.2 Daemon improvements

13.2.1 ODBC monitoring improvements

  • Before Zabbix 2.0.8 the login timeout for ODBC Database monitor items had a fixed value, 5 seconds. Now it is configurable and equal to “Timeout” parameter in server/proxy configuration file (3 seconds by default).
  • More detailed ODBC error messages

13.2.2 Improved warnings for messages exceeding size limits

Previously, when a message exceeded size limits Zabbix ignored it by writing a simple warning to the log file:

19561:20130806:165515.375 Message size 99999999 exceeds the maximum size 67108864 bytes. Message ignored.

In Zabbix 2.0.8, the IP address is added to the warning to identify the message source:

19561:20130806:165515.375 Message size 99999999 from IP 10.0.3.1 exceeds the maximum size 67108864 bytes. Message ignored.

13.2.3 Security fixes

Zabbix server now correctly enables SSL host verification when using Ez Texting service to send alerts.
