-  - Starting with Zabbix 2.0, multiple interfaces can be set in the host definition - Agent, SNMP, JMX, and IPMI. If a particular item type requires a particular interface (like an IPMI item needs an IPMI interface on the host)that interface must existin the host definition. ​Alsoif an item can use more than one interface, it will search the available host interfaces (in the order: Agent->​SNMP->​JMX->​IPMI) for the first appropriate one to be linked with.\\  +
