4 Events


There are several types of events generated in Zabbix:

  • trigger events - whenever a trigger changes its status (OK→PROBLEM→OK)
  • service events - whenever a service changes its status (OK→PROBLEM→OK)
  • discovery events - when hosts or services are detected
  • autoregistration events - when active agents are auto-registered by server
  • internal events - when an item/low-level discovery rule becomes unsupported or a trigger goes into an unknown state

Events are time-stamped and can be the basis of actions such as sending notification email etc.

To view details of events in the frontend, go to MonitoringProblems. There you can click on the event date and time to view details of an event.
