-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 [[https://share.zabbix.com/​official-templates/zabbix-components|importing]] the latest official version or by performing ​the change manually.+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 [[https://git.zabbix.com/​projects/​ZBX/​repos/zabbix/​browse/​templates?​at=refs%2Fheads%2Frelease%2F4.4|Zabbix Git repository]]
 +  * Then, while in //​Configuration//​ -> //​Templates//​ 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 === === New templates ===
  
-New templates are available for [[:manual/appendix/items/​remote_stats|remote monitoring]] of Zabbix ​server or proxy internal metrics ​from an external instance:+See the list of [[:manual/introduction/whatsnew440#​new_templates|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. 
 +  * In the //Template Module Zabbix agent// agent.ping type has been changed ​from ZABBIX_ACTIVE to ZABBIX_PASSIVE 
 + 
 +=== 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 ​App Remote Zabbix server +  * Template ​Module HOST-RESOURCES-MIB storage SNMPv2 
-  * Template ​App Remote Zabbix proxy+  * Template ​Module HOST-RESOURCES-MIB memory SNMPv2 
 +  * Template Module HOST-RESOURCES-MIB CPU SNMPv2
  
-Note that in order to use a template for remote monitoring of multiple external instances, a separate ​host is required ​for each external instance monitoring.+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//

-  * More descriptions for triggers related to caching parameters ​have been added (e.g. %%"​%%Consider increasing HistoryCacheSize in the zabbix_server.conf configuration file%%"​%% ​for the //More than 75% used in the history cache// ​trigger, ​etc.).+  * Each xml of template has been moved into its own sub directory. In Bitbucket, this allows each template to have its own README.md rendered, when viewed in web. 
 +  * Value mapping ​'Ethernet 10Mbs' ​has been renamed to 'Ethernet' ​in linux,​linux_prom 
 +  * Ploop md hcp zram has been added to LLD filter for vfs.dev(block devices) in linux,​linux_prom,​linux_snmp

 +  * //Template App HAProxy by Zabbix agent// - collects metrics by polling [[https://​www.haproxy.com/​blog/​exploring-the-haproxy-stats-page/​|HAProxy Stats Page]] locally with Zabbix agent (see [[https://​git.zabbix.com/projects/ZBX/​repos/​zabbix/​browse/​templates/​app/​haproxy_agent|description]]).
