    ZABBIX 1.6.5 released

    ZABBIX SIA is proud to announce the availability of ZABBIX 1.6.5.

    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 recommended to upgrade from previous releases of 1.6.x.

    This document contains the release notes for ZABBIX 1.6.5.

    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_1 on graphs_items (itemid);
    CREATE INDEX graphs_items_2 on graphs_items (graphid);
    CREATE INDEX services_1 on services (triggerid);
