Another example of running Zabbix get for capturing a string from a website:
Note that the item key here contains a space so quotes are used to mark the item key to the shell. The quotes are not part of the item key; they will be trimmed by the shell and will not be passed to Zabbix agent.
Zabbix get accepts the following command line parameters:
-s --host <host name or IP> Specify host name or IP address of a host. -p --port <port number> Specify port number of agent running on the host. Default is 10050. -I --source-address <IP address> Specify source IP address. -k --key <item key> Specify key of item to retrieve value of. -h --help Give this help. -V --version Display version number.
