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.


A new template OpenWeatherMap by HTTP is now available allowing to monitor OpenWeatherMap via HTTP. See HTTP template operation for setup instructions.

The following changes have been made in the existing templates:

  • In the templates Windows services by Zabbix agent, Windows services by Zabbix agent active, Windows by Zabbix agent, Windows by Zabbix agent active {$SERVICE.NAME.NOT_MATCHES} macro value has been updated to filter out an extended list of 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;
  • If you are upgrading from previous versions, you can download new templates from Zabbix Git repository or find them in the zabbix/templates directory of the downloaded latest Zabbix version. Then, while in ConfigurationTemplates you can import them manually into Zabbix.
