5 What's new in Zabbix 6.0.0

Zabbix 6.0.0 is not released yet.



It is now possible to receive automated alerts about service status changes, similar to the alerts about trigger status changes. New action type Service actions has been added to the Actions menu. Service actions may include steps for problem, recovery, and update operations related to services. It is possible to configure two types of actions: sending a message to the specified recipients and executing a remote command on Zabbix server. Similarly to Trigger actions, Service actions support problem escalation scenarios.

New message templates Service, Service recovery, and Service update have been added to media types and should be defined to enable correct sending of notifications for Service actions.

Zabbix get and Zabbix sender timeout

Zabbix get and Zabbix sender utilities now support a -t <seconds> or --timeout <seconds> timeout parameter. The valid range is:

  • 1-30 seconds for Zabbix get (default: 30 seconds)
  • 1-300 seconds for Zabbix sender (default: 60 seconds)

Prometheus queries

Zabbix Prometheus preprocessing query language now supports two additional label matching operators:

  • != – select labels that are not equal to the provided string;
  • !~ – select labels that do not regex-match the provided string.
