This addon provides the agent for monitoring a host by Zabbix Montitoring.
You need a running Zabbix Server and you should be aware of how to integrate hosts monitored by agents into your environment.
The addon is shipped with a default configuration file and some additional directories and files:
/etc/zabbix_agentdAll configuration files should be put below this directory. The entire directory will be included in a backup of this addon.
/etc/zabbix_agentd/zabbix_agentd.conf The configuration file. See the original documentation for help. Please note: The parameters
ServerActive have to be set to your Zabbix Server's (or Proxy's) IP/DNS in order to allow access to the agent. They are both set to 127.0.0.1 by default for security reasons.
/etc/zabbix_agentd/zabbix_agentd.d Files containing UserParameters should go here. They need to have the extension
/etc/zabbix_agentd/scriptsAdditional scripts e.g. for UserParameters should go here
/etc/sudoers.d/zabbix.userThis file can be modified to allow certain commands to be executed with sudo if needed by a UserParameter. This file will be included in a backup of this addon. Do not change the filename!
