11 What's new in Zabbix 3.0.6

5.37 Frontend improvements

  • {HOST.*} macros used in web scenario configuration are now correctly resolved in several frontend locations, including MonitoringWeb, MonitoringLatest data, simple graphs, etc.
  • {HOST.*} macros in item key parameters are now also resolved for items without interfaces, resolving to either Zabbix agent, SNMP, JMX or IPMI interface of the host.
  • User macros are now resolved on allowed hosts even if the macros are defined on a template that the user does not have permissions to.

5.37.1 Updated translations

  • English (United States)
  • Persian
  • Russian
  • Spanish
  • Ukrainian

5.38 Daemon improvements

  • Active agent auto-registration events are not generated any more if there is no action for auto registration.
  • OpenSSL 1.1.0 support, it brings some new ciphersuites for PSK, enabling Perfect Forward Secrecy. See differences between OpenSSL 1.0.2c and 1.1.0 Ciphersuites.
  • Item creation/update by low-level discovery now returns errors in case macro resolving cannot be fully accomplished (instead of making such items that will inevitably fail on later stages). A corresponding error message will be displayed in ConfigurationHostsDiscovery.

5.39 Item changes

5.39.1 VMware monitoring

A new vmware.hv.sensor.health.state key has been added to monitor VMware hypervisor health state rollup sensor. The vmware.hv.status key was reverted back to its original implementation and now uses the hypervisor overall status property.

A new vmware.hv.datastore.size key has been added to monitor VMware datastore capacity and free space.

5.39.2 Chassis information

Changed system.hw.chassis key to read the DMI table from sysfs, if sysfs access fails then try reading directly from memory.

5.39.3 Windows monitoring

A new vm.vmemory.size key has been added to monitor virtual memory statistics on Windows.

5.40 Trigger functions

  • Support for suffixed values has been added to the threshold parameter of the timeleft() trigger function.
