Unhappy How to monitor the pop3-ssl service with zabbix 3.0


I'm trying to monitor the pop3-ssl Service with zabbix but can't get it to work.

I tried to use the follwing Keys for the item:

but anything returns a "Invalid first parameter." error.
The same es for the Bind9 DNS Service. I just need to know if the service is running.

How to do that?
Thanks Peter

Unhappy I am having the same issue.

I want to monitor the Splunkd service on a Windows server using net.tcp.service[SplunkD] and the item just returns "Invalid first parameter."

I've also tried the[splunkd,] (with and without comma, and using state as parameter). This way, Zabbix seems to recognize the service and returns me some data but it doesn't matter what I do to the service, it is always returning 0, while it should return 0 only when it is running. That way, the monitor is useless.

What can I be missing?

Worked for me (so far, still doing some tests).
Those are the steps I did.
1 - Create an Application Item (
2 - Create an Item:
Name: Your service is running
Type: Zabbix agent
Key:[servicename] (you must get this name on the Windows host
Type of Information: Numeric (unsigned)
Data type: Decimal
Use custom multiplier: UNCHECKED
Update Interval: you decide
Store value: As is
Show value: Windows Service State
Applications: Your application name.

Let me know if it works for you.
