    Running several zabbix server

    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 :

    Code:
    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.

    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.

        what about multiple zabbix servers for one db

        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.
