-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 ===
 +
 +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.
 +
 +=== 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//

 +  * 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
