DESCRIPTION

zabbix_agent2 is an application for monitoring parameters of various services.

 

OPTIONS

-c, --config config-file
Use the alternate config-file instead of the default one.

-R, --runtime-control runtime-option

userparameter reload

loglevel increase

-p, --print
Print known items and exit. For each item either generic defaults are used, or specific defaults for testing are supplied. These defaults are listed in square brackets as item key parameters. Returned values are enclosed in square brackets and prefixed with the type of the returned value, separated by a pipe character. For user parameters type is always t, as the agent can not determine all possible return values. Items, displayed as working, are not guaranteed to work from the Zabbix server or zabbix_get when querying a running agent daemon as permissions or environment may be different. Returned value types are:

d
Number with a decimal part.

m
Not supported. This could be caused by querying an item that only works in the active mode like a log monitoring item or an item that requires multiple collected values. Permission issues or incorrect user parameters could also result in the not supported state.

s
Text. Maximum length not limited.

t
Text. Same as s.

u
Unsigned integer.


-t, --test item-key
Test single item and exit. See --print for output description.

-h, --help
Display this help and exit.

-V, --version
Output version information and exit.
