We run a couple of automated
scans to help you access a
module's quality. Each module is
given a score based on how well
the author has formatted their
code and documentation and
modules are also checked for
malware using VirusTotal.

Please note, the information below

fiddyspence/zabbix — version 0.0.4 Sep 22nd 2013

This is the zabbix module

It uses to talk to the JSONRpc API presented by Zabbix, but I am going to change that soon.

It is currently only partially featured - it will install a zabbix server on EL, create hosts and hostgroups.

The Zabbix API is, I apologise for this, not awesome.

The base class will install a zabbix server, using either MySQL or Postgresql as the backend

Example usage for MySQL:

node 'zabbixmysql' inherits default {
  class { 'zabbix': server => true, managedb => true, dbserver => 'mysql' }
  Zabbix_host <<| |>>

Example usage for Postgres:

node 'zabbixpg' inherits default {
  class { 'zabbix': server => true, managedb => true, dbserver => 'postgresql' }
  Zabbix_host <<| |>>

node default {
  # Export a host definition, to be imported by the zabbix server
  @@zabbix_host { $::fqdn:
    ensure     => 'present',
    groups     => ['Linux servers','foogroup'],
    interfaces => [ { type => 1, main => 1, ip => $::ipaddress, dns => $::fqdn, port => 10050, useip => 1 } ],
