5 Triggers


The Monitoring → Triggers section displays the status of triggers.

Column Description
Severity The trigger severity is displayed.
The color of the severity is used as cell background for problem triggers. For OK triggers, green background is used.
Status The trigger status is displayed - OK or PROBLEM.
By default, it will be blinking for 30 minutes for triggers that have recently changed their state. Additionally, triggers that have recently changed their state to OK, will be displayed for 30 minutes even if the filter is set to show only problems.
Text color and blinking options can be configured in Administration → General → Trigger displaying options.
Info A grey icon with a question mark indicates that there is some relevant information to be displayed. If you move your mouse pointer over it, the message will be displayed.
Last change The date and time of last trigger status change is displayed.
Age The age of last trigger status change is displayed.
Acknowledged The acknowledgement status of the trigger is displayed:
Acknowledged - green text indicating that the trigger is acknowledged. A trigger is considered to be acknowledged if all problem events for it are acknowledged (or if there have been only OK events).
Acknowledge - a red link indicating unacknowledged problem events (and their number in parenthesis).
If you click on the link you will be taken to a bulk acknowledgement screen where all events for this trigger can be acknowledged at once.
Note: If you wish to acknowledge a single event only, go to MonitoringEvents.
No events - if there have been no problem events for the trigger. Displaying this string is supported since Zabbix 2.0.4; prior to that these triggers were displayed as Acknowledged.
Host The host of the trigger is displayed.
It is also a link to the defined custom scripts, latest host data, host inventory overview and host screens.
Name The name of the trigger is displayed.
It is also a link to the trigger event list and the trigger configuration page, as well as to a simple graph of item data. The link list may also contain a custom trigger URL, if one is defined in trigger configuration.
Comments A link to comments about the trigger.
The link for adding descriptions to triggers created by low-level discovery has been removed in Zabbix 2.2.16. Such descriptions were later deleted anyway by low-level discovery, if they were not present in the original trigger prototype.

Using filter

You can use the filter to display only the triggers you are interested in. The filter link is the blue bar located above the table.

By default the filter is set to display triggers in problem status, also including the triggers that have only very recently changed from 'Problem' status to 'OK'. You can switch to display triggers in 'Any' status, however, the next time you return to this page, problem triggers will again be selected by default.
