6 What's new in Zabbix 6.0.1

Zabbix agent 2 items

  • Native support for the items net.dns and net.dns.record has been added. These items, used with Zabbix agent 2, now support concurrent check processing. On Windows, custom DNS IP addresses are allowed in the ip parameter, timeout and count parameters are no longer ignored.
  • smart.disk.discovery and smart.attribute.discovery items, supported for S.M.A.R.T. plugin, have been updated and now return {#DISKTYPE} macro value in the lower case.

Discovery of disabled systemd units

It is now also possible to discover disabled systemd units using the systemd.unit.discovery item key, supported by Zabbix agent 2. Note that to have items and triggers created from prototypes for disabled systemd units, it may be necessary to adjust (or remove) prohibiting LLD filters for the {#UNIT.ACTIVESTATE} and {#UNIT.UNITFILESTATE} macros.

For more details, see Discovery of systemd services.

SNI support in encrypted connections

Encrypted TCP connections between Zabbix agent and Zabbix server or proxy now support SNI.
