    ZABBIX 1.6.4 released

    ZABBIX SIA is proud to announce the availability of ZABBIX 1.6.4.

    ZABBIX is an enterprise-class open source distributed monitoring
    solution. ZABBIX is released under the GPL, thus it is free of charge
    for both commercial and non-commercial use. A complete text of the
    license is available at http://www.gnu.org/copyleft/gpl.txt.

    It is highly recommended to upgrade from 1.6, 1.6.1, 1.6.2 and 1.6.3.

    This document contains the release notes for ZABBIX 1.6.4.

    The following sections describe the release in details and provide
    late-breaking or other information that supplements its main
    documentation.

    Important

    It is recommended to create the following indexes in order to speed
    up performance of ZABBIX front-end as well as server side (ignore it
    if the indexes already exist):

    Code:
    CREATE UNIQUE INDEX history_log_2 on history_log (itemid,id);
    CREATE UNIQUE INDEX history_text_2 on history_text (itemid,id);
    CREATE INDEX graphs_items_2 on graphs_items (graphid);
