10 What's new in Zabbix 6.0.5

Templates

New templates are available:

  • CockroachDB by HTTP
  • Envoy Proxy by HTTP
  • HashiCorp Consul Cluster by HTTP
  • HashiCorp Consul Node by HTTP

See setup instructions for HTTP templates.

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 templates directory of the downloaded latest Zabbix version. Then, while in ConfigurationTemplates you can import them manually into Zabbix.

Handling of NaN values in Prometheus preprocessing

There is a new behavior for handling (skipping) NaN values. So, if a dataset consists of valid numeric values and NaNs, then NaN values are skipped and:

  • 'avg', 'max', 'min', 'sum' return a result that is calculated from the valid values
  • 'count' returns the number of valid values

If all values in a dataset are NaNs then 'avg', 'max', 'min', and 'sum' return a "no data (at least one value is required)" error, while 'count' returns 0.

Previously, if NaN was the first value in a dataset then:

  • 'avg', 'max', 'min', 'sum' returned a "Value "NAN" of type "string" is not suitable for
    value type "Numeric (float)"" error
  • 'count' returned the number of values (including NaN values)

Also previously, if NaN was not the first value in a dataset then:

  • 'avg', 'sum' returned a "Value "NAN" of type "string" is not suitable for
    value type "Numeric (float)"" error
  • 'max' returned the maximum of values until the first NaN was encountered
  • 'min' returned the minimum of values until the first NaN was encountered
  • 'count' returned the number of values (including NaN values)

The latest data link for hosts in Monitoring -> Hosts now shows the number of items with latest data.

Frontend languages

German and Vietnamese languages are now enabled in the frontend.

Expandable lists in latest data subfilter

Expandable lists have been introduced in the latest data subfilter:

  • For each entity group (e.g. tags, hosts) up to 10 rows of entities are now displayed. If there are more entities, this list can be expanded to a maximum of 1000 entries (the value of SUBFILTER_VALUES_PER_GROUP in frontend definitions) by clicking on a three-dot icon displayed at the end. Previously a non-expandable maximum of 100 entries was the limit.

  • In the list of Tag values up to 10 rows of tag names are now displayed. If there are more tag names with values, this list can be expanded to a maximum of 200 tag names by clicking on a three-dot icon displayed at the bottom. Previously, a non-expandable maximum of 20 rows with tag names was the limit.

For each tag name up to 10 rows of values are displayed (expandable to 1000 entries (the value of SUBFILTER_VALUES_PER_GROUP in frontend definitions)).
