2 Overview

Overview

The Monitoring → Overview section offers an overview of trigger states or a comparison of data for various hosts at once.

The following display options are available:

  • select horizontal or vertical display of information in the Hosts location dropdown
  • select all hosts or specific host groups in the Group dropdown
  • select all applications or specific ones in the Application dropdown (this dropdown is available since Zabbix 2.2; by selecting an application, the selection of triggers/items will be narrowed down to those of the selected application)
  • choose what type of information to display (triggers or data) in the Type dropdown

Overview of triggers

In the next screenshot Triggers are selected in the Type dropdown. As a result, trigger states of two local hosts are displayed, as coloured blocks (the colour depending on the state of the trigger):

Note that recent trigger changes (within the last 30 minutes) will be displayed as blinking blocks.

Clicking on a trigger block provides links to trigger events, the acknowledgement screen or a simple graph/latest values list.

Overview of data

In the next screenshot Data is selected in the Type dropdown. As a result, performance item data of two local hosts are displayed.

Clicking on a piece of data offers links to some predefined graphs or 500 latest values.

Starting with Zabbix 2.2.4, only values that fall within the last 24 hours are displayed by default. This limit has been introduced with the aim of improving initial loading times of data in large pages. It is also possible to change this limitation by changing the value of ZBX_HISTORY_PERIOD constant in include/defines.inc.php.
