8 Template changes

This page lists all changes to the stock templates that are shipped with Zabbix. It is suggested to modify these templates in existing installations - depending on the changes, it can be done either by:

  • importing the latest official version (while in ConfigurationTemplates you can import the updated template manually from the templates directory of the downloaded latest Zabbix version);
  • performing the change manually.

Changes in 4.2.0

Zabbix server template

  • New low-level discovery manager and worker processes have been added
  • The new zabbix[lld_queue] item has been added to monitor low-level discovery queue
  • More descriptions for triggers related to caching parameters have been added (e.g. "Consider increasing HistoryCacheSize in the zabbix_server.conf configuration file" for the More than 75% used in the history cache trigger, etc.).

Zabbix proxy template

Description of the More than 75% used in the configuration cache trigger has been fixed to refer to the zabbix_proxy.conf file (instead of zabbix_server.conf).

More descriptions for triggers related to caching parameters have been added (e.g. "Consider increasing HistoryCacheSize in the zabbix_proxy.conf configuration file" for More than 75% used in the history cache trigger, etc.).

Changes in 4.2.1

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

  • {#SNMPVALUE}: CPU utilization
  • {#SNMPVALUE}: High CPU utilization
