Hello

I try something yesterday :

At first I run an instance of zabbix_server
Then I create a new database called zabbix2 with some data and a new configuration file like this :

zabbix_server2.conf :

Server=2

StartPollers=6

StartTrappers=5

ListenPort=10051

HousekeepingFrequency=1

SenderFrequency=30

DebugLevel=3

Timeout=5

PidFile=/var/tmp/zabbix_server2.pid

LogFile=/tmp/zabbix_server2.log

AlertScriptsPath=/home/zabbix/bin/

DBName=zabbix2

DBUser=zabbix

DBPassword=zabbix


After I configure a frontend and run
zabbix_server -c /etc/zabbix/zabbix_server2.conf

And it seems to work well. Is there someone who try this before? Is there any known issues or bug? Advices are welcome.

Thanks.

Brice

We constantly run 4 or 5 ZABBIX server on our main test server. It is absolutely safe provided you use different databases. By the way, no need to use parameter Server. It is not supported.

So the method is good? Thans, it will help me a lot.

I just want to knowhow server options will be used in future?

Is such a thing possible? I have alot of items that would need to be polled (perhaps 500k every 5 min). I dont think one server will cut it.
