Supported agents

Older agents from Zabbix 1.x and previous versions of Zabbix 2.x can still be used with Zabbix 3.0. It generally does not require any configuration changes on the agent side, apart from parameters related to logging, which you may want to review.

However, to take full advantage of new and improved items, improved performance and reduced memory usage, use the latest 3.0 agent.

Supported Zabbix proxies

Both Zabbix 3.0 proxies and Zabbix 3.0 server are supported to work only with Zabbix 3.0 server and Zabbix 3.0 proxies respectively.

Supported XML files

XML files, exported with 1.8, 2.0, 2.2 and 2.4 are supported for import in Zabbix 3.0.

In Zabbix 1.8 XML export format, trigger dependencies are stored by name only. If there are several triggers with the same name (for example, having different severities and expressions) that have a dependency defined between them, it is not possible to import them. Such dependencies must be manually removed from the XML file and re-added after import.
