    This document contains the release notes for ZABBIX 1.6.6.

    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):

    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);
