Low-level discovery also provides a way to automatically create items, triggers, and graphs for different discovered entities.
Automatic inventory data collection will allow gathering information like serial numbers, installed packages, network adapter information and other details, which can then be monitored for changes or included in e-mail alerts. Multiple-interface support per host allows to configure several interface-host pairs in the host properties.
Moreover, Zabbix 2.0 provides direct JMX monitoring support, which makes it much easier to monitor Java applications without deploying any additional software. Web monitoring now can be performed not only by Zabbix server, but also by any Zabbix proxy.
Apart from introducing the new features, Zabbix 2.0 contains several improvements over the previous versions. Network maps now have automatic icon selection based on host type, new network map icons and multiple URL support for map elements.
