8 Template changes

This page lists all changes to the stock templates that are shipped with Zabbix. It is suggested to modify these templates in existing installations - depending on the changes, it can be done either by:

  • importing the latest official version (while in ConfigurationTemplates you can import the updated template manually from the templates directory of the downloaded latest Zabbix version);
  • performing the change manually.

Changes in 4.4.1

  • The Template Net HP Comware HH3C SNMPv2 now contains the correct value mapping.

Changes in 4.4.2

Low-level discovery rules have been split from the parent template Template Module HOST-RESOURCES-MIB SNMPv2 into separate linked templates:

  • Template Module HOST-RESOURCES-MIB storage SNMPv2
  • Template Module HOST-RESOURCES-MIB memory SNMPv2
  • Template Module HOST-RESOURCES-MIB CPU SNMPv2

Other changes:

  • A CPU utilization item has been added to Template Module HOST-RESOURCES-MIB CPU SNMPv2;
  • The filesystem discovery filter has been improved to exclude some unnecessary values in Template Module HOST-RESOURCES-MIB storage SNMPv2 (linked to Template OS Windows SNMPv2), Template Net Arista SNMPv2);
  • The network interface discovery filter has been improved to exclude some unnecessary values in Template Module Interfaces Windows SNMPv2 (linked to Template OS Windows SNMPv2);
  • Discovery filters in several templates are now defined by template-level user macros (for example {$VFS.FS.FSNAME.MATCHES} and {$VFS.FS.FSNAME.NOT_MATCHES}) that can be overridden on host or linked-template level for flexibility:
    • Template Module HOST-RESOURCES-MIB storage SNMPv2
    • Template Module HOST-RESOURCES-MIB memory SNMPv2
    • Template Module HOST-RESOURCES-MIB CPU SNMPv2
    • Template Module Interfaces Windows SNMPv2

  • Low-level discovery rules have been split from Template Module HOST-RESOURCES-MIB SNMPv1 into separate linked templates (see Changes in 4.4.2 for details)
