13.1.2 Performance improvements

13.1.3 Dashboard host status widget

  • Previously, when using the dashbaord filter Unacknowledged only option, acknowledged problem triggers were displayed neither in With problems nor Without problems columns of the host status widget, resulting in a wrong host count in total. Now the acknowledged problem triggers are displayed in the Without problems column.

13.2 Daemon improvements

  • Item key length limitation of 2KB has been removed on Zabbix server when sending item key to the agent
  • Item key length limitation of 1KB has been removed from the -k option of zabbix_get
  • wmi.get item was improved to accept UTF-8 encoded namespace, WQL query and encode returned string in UTF-8
  • The detection of a single item failing with network/timeout error introduced in Zabbix 2.4.7 was removed because of inability to distinguish possible network errors.

13.2.1 Trend cache improvements

Trends of items that received no data during the first 55 minutes of the hour will be flushed to database and removed from the cache. This means no more Zabbix server restarts due to lack of free space in trend cache. Also trends of items with update interval longer than one hour will get into the database earlier.

13.3 Miscellaneous improvements
