 +==== 8 Template changes ====
  
 +This page lists all changes to the stock templates that are shipped with Zabbix. ​
 +
 +Note that upgrading to the latest Zabbix version will not automatically upgrade the templates used. It is suggested to modify the templates in existing installations by:
 +
 +  * Downloading the latest templates from the [[https://​git.zabbix.com/​projects/​ZBX/​repos/​zabbix/​browse/​templates?​at=refs%2Fheads%2Frelease%2F4.0|Zabbix Git repository]];​
 +  * Then, while in //​Configuration//​ -> //​Templates//​ you can import them manually into Zabbix. If templates with the same names already exist, the //Delete missing// options should be checked when importing to achieve a clean import. This way the old items that are no longer in the updated template will be removed (note that it will mean losing history of these old items).
 +==== Changes in 4.0.0 ====
 +
 +=== New templates ===
 +
 +New templates are available for monitoring some IBM, Dell, HP, Cisco UCS and Supermicro Aten hardware: ​
 +
 +  * Template Server IBM IMM SNMPv1/2
 +  * Template Server Dell iDRAC SNMPv2
 +  * Template Server HP iLO SNMPv2
 +  * Template Server Supermicro Aten SNMPv2
 +  * Template Server Cisco UCS SNMPv2
 +
 +These templates are part of the default Zabbix dataset for new installations. If you are upgrading from previous versions, you can import these templates manually.
 +
 +=== Improved naming style ===
 +
 +Naming style of groups and applications has been improved for some out-of-the-box templates.
 +
 +=== Positional macros removed ===
 +
 +[[:​manual/​installation/​upgrade_notes_400#​macros_in_item_name_deprecated|Deprecated]] positional macros have been removed from item names in standard templates.
 +
 +=== Server/​proxy template ===
 +
 +The default Zabbix server/​proxy templates (//Template App Zabbix Server//, //Template App Zabbix Proxy//) have been changed. ​
 +
 +While some items have been renamed, there are also some completely new items:
 +
 +  * Number of processed character values per second
 +  * Number of processed log values per second
 +  * Number of processed not supported values per second
 +  * Number of processed numeric (float) values per second
 +  * Number of processed numeric (unsigned) values per second
 +  * Number of processed text values per second
 +
 +The following items are new and replace some old ones:
 +  * Zabbix configuration cache, % used - replaces //Zabbix configuration cache, % free//
 +  * Zabbix history index cache, % used - replaces //Zabbix history index cache, % free//
 +  * Zabbix history write cache, % used - replaces //Zabbix history write cache, % free//
 +  * (in server template only) Zabbix trend write cache, % used - replaces //Zabbix trend write cache, % free//
 +  * (in server template only) Zabbix value cache, % used - replaces //Zabbix value cache, % free//
 +
 +The trigger expressions using the replaced items have been updated accordingly.
 +
 +==== Changes in 4.0.2 ====
 +
 +=== OS Linux template ===
 +
 +Two new items have been added to //​Template_OS_Linux//:​
 +
 +  * ''​CPU guest time''​ - the time spent running a virtual CPU for guest operating systems
 +  * ''​CPU guest nice time''​ - the time spent running a niced guest (virtual CPU for guest operating systems)
 +
 +The CPU utilization graph has been updated to include these two items.
 +
 +==== Changes in 4.0.3 ====
 +
 +=== Tomcat template ===
 +
 +//Template App Apache Tomcat JMX// has been updated:
 +
 +  * support for recent Tomcat versions has been added
 +  * the following macros have been defined: {$PROTOCOL_HANDLER_HTTP},​ {$PROTOCOL_HANDLER_HTTPS},​ {$PROTOCOL_HANDLER_AJP}
 +
 +==== Changes in 4.0.5 ====
 +
 +=== New templates ===
 +
 +New templates are available for [[:​manual/​appendix/​items/​remote_stats|remote monitoring]] of Zabbix server or proxy internal metrics from an external instance:
 +
 +  * Template App Remote Zabbix server
 +  * Template App Remote Zabbix proxy
 +
 +Note that in order to use a template for remote monitoring of multiple external instances, a separate host is required for each external instance monitoring.
 +
 +==== Changes in 4.0.6 ====
 +
 +=== VMware template ===
 +
 +//Template VM VMware// has been updated:
 +
 +  * the key of the "Event log" item has been changed to ''​vmware.eventlog[{$URL},​skip]''​ - now skipping old data
 +
 +==== Changes in 4.0.7 ====
 +
 +=== SNMP interface templates ===
 +
 +Update intervals have been changed from 5m to 3m for these LLD item prototypes:
 +  * ''​Interface {#​IFNAME}({#​IFALIAS}):​ Inbound packets with errors'' ​
 +  * ''​Interface {#​IFNAME}({#​IFALIAS}):​ Outbound packets with errors''​
 +
 +in:
 +
 +  * //Template Module Interfaces Simple SNMPv1//
 +  * //Template Module Interfaces Simple SNMPv2//
 +  * //Template Module Interfaces SNMPv1//
 +  * //Template Module Interfaces SNMPv2//
 +  * //Template Module Interfaces Windows SNMPv2//
 +
 +These update intervals have been changed to avoid creation of excess internal events caused by trigger state flapping.
 +
 +==== Changes in 4.0.13 ====
 +
 +=== Juniper template ===
 +
 +The more correct OID of '​jnxOperatingCPU'​ (1.3.6.1.4.1.2636.3.1.13.1.8) is now used instead of '​jnxOperating5MinLoadAvg'​ (1.3.6.1.4.1.2636.3.1.13.1.21) in these LLD item and trigger prototypes:
 +
 +  * ''​{#​SNMPVALUE}:​ CPU utilization''​
 +  * ''​{#​SNMPVALUE}:​ High CPU utilization''​
 +
 +in:
 +
 +  * //Template Net Juniper SNMPv2//
 +
 +==== Changes in 4.0.14 ====
 +
 +=== New Cisco UCS server template ===
 +
 +A Cisco UCS server monitoring template - //Template Server Cisco UCS SNMPv2// has been added. ​
 +
 +It will be available in //​Configuration//​ -> //​Templates//​ in new installations. If you are upgrading from previous versions, you can find this template in the ''​templates''​ directory of the downloaded latest Zabbix version. Then, while in //​Configuration//​ -> //​Templates//​ you can import it manually into Zabbix.
 +
 +=== HP iLO template ===
 +
 +The counter for overall server health check has been fixed in the //Template Server HP iLO SNMPv2// template.
 +
 +=== HP Comware template ===
 +
 +The //Template Net HP Comware HH3C SNMPv2// now contains the correct value mapping.
 +
 +==== Changes in 4.0.15 ====
 +
 +Low-level **discovery rules** have been split from the parent template //Template Module HOST-RESOURCES-MIB SNMPv2// into separate linked templates:
 +
 +  * Template Module HOST-RESOURCES-MIB storage SNMPv2
 +  * Template Module HOST-RESOURCES-MIB memory SNMPv2
 +  * Template Module HOST-RESOURCES-MIB CPU SNMPv2
 +
 +Other changes:
 +  * A CPU utilization item has been added to //Template Module HOST-RESOURCES-MIB CPU SNMPv2//;
 +  * The filesystem discovery filter has been improved to exclude some unnecessary values in //Template Module HOST-RESOURCES-MIB storage SNMPv2// (linked to //Template OS Windows SNMPv2//, //Template Net Arista SNMPv2//);
 +  * The network interface discovery filter has been improved to exclude some unnecessary values in //Template Module Interfaces Windows SNMPv2// (linked to //Template OS Windows SNMPv2//);
 +  * Discovery filters in several templates are now defined by template-level user macros (for example {$VFS.FS.FSNAME.MATCHES} and {$VFS.FS.FSNAME.NOT_MATCHES}) that can be overridden on host or linked-template level for flexibility:​
 +    * //Template Module HOST-RESOURCES-MIB storage SNMPv2//
 +    * //Template Module HOST-RESOURCES-MIB memory SNMPv2//
 +    * //Template Module HOST-RESOURCES-MIB CPU SNMPv2//
 +    * //Template Module Interfaces Windows SNMPv2//
 +==== Changes in 4.0.16 ====
 +
 +Low-level **discovery rules** have been split into separate linked templates for the following template:
 +    * //Template Module HOST-RESOURCES-MIB SNMPv1//
