8 Template changes

This page lists all changes to the stock templates that are shipped with Zabbix.

Note that upgrading to the latest Zabbix version will not automatically upgrade the templates used. It is suggested to modify the templates in existing installations by:

  • Downloading the latest templates from the Zabbix Git repository;
  • Then, while in ConfigurationTemplates you can import them manually into Zabbix. If templates with the same names already exist, the Delete missing options should be checked when importing to achieve a clean import. This way the old items that are no longer in the updated template will be removed (note that it will mean losing history of these old items).

New templates

See the list of new templates in Zabbix 4.4.0.

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

Changes in 4.4.4

  • 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)
