Overview

This module manages the zabbix agent for a monitored machine. It can also, optionally, manage repositories related to Zabbix on Linux. On the Red Hat family of OS's, this includes both EPEL and Zabbix. On the Debian family, this is just the Zabbix repo. On SUSE this is the "Server Monitoring Software" repo. On Windows this module utilizes the Chocolatey provider.

Setup Requirements

This module has been tested against Puppet 4.x on:

  • CentOS 6 & 7
  • Debian 7 & 8
  • OpenSUSE Leap 42.1 & 42.2
  • Red Hat 5, 6, 7
  • SUSE Linux Enterprise Server 12
  • Ubuntu Server 14.04 16.04
  • Windows 7
  • Windows Server 2012 R2

Testing via Travis-CI is also done against Puppet 3.x with, and without, future parser.

History

This was originally softek-zabbixagent before undergoing a total rewrite in January 2015. Post rewrite, only a couple of comments and part of one line of the original code was left. Since no 'substantial portions' of the code was reused and no written licence was contained in the repository I have chosen not to reuse the MIT license that was referenced in the original metadata.json file.

This module has been released independant of the original after reviewing the original author's GitHub issue tracker. Specifically, it appeared that they had not been responding to issues or pull requests for at least six months and some had sat for nearly two years. This response timeframe and my needs didn't line up so here we are.
