26 What's new in Zabbix 5.0.22

PostgreSQL metrics

A new item has been added to PostgreSQL plugin for Zabbix agent 2. The metric pgsql.queries is used for monitoring query execution time.


The following templates have been updated:

  • The template Generic Java JMX now contains discovery rules for low-level discovery of memory pools and garbage collectors.
  • The templates Template Module Windows services by Zabbix agent and Template Module Windows services by Zabbix agent active now contain a new macro {$SERVICE.NAME.NOT_MATCHES.EXTENDED}, which is used to filter out additional services.
  • The template PostgreSQL by Zabbix agent 2 now will check the number of slow queries and generate a problem if the amount exceeds a threshold.

You can get these templates:

  • In ConfigurationTemplates in new installations;
  • When upgrading from previous versions, the latest templates can be downloaded from the Zabbix Git repository and manually imported into Zabbix in the ConfigurationTemplates section. If a template with the same name already exists, check the Delete missing option before importing to achieve a clean import. This way the items that have been excluded from the updated template will be removed (note that history of the deleted items will be lost).

Keyboard navigation

Keyboard control has been implemented for info icons in the frontend. Thus it is now possible to focus on info icons, and open the hints, using the keyboard.
