Description

This module installs and configures Zabbix Agent 2

Zabbix Agent 2 is a new generation of Zabbix agent and may be used in place of Zabbix agent.

Usage

Example configuration:

class {'::zabbix_agent2':
  config => {
    PidFile       => '/run/zabbix/zabbix_agent2.pid',
    LogFile       => '/var/log/zabbix/zabbix_agent2.log',
    LogFileSize   => 0,
    Server        => '10.10.10.10',
    ServerActive  => '10.10.10.10',
    Hostname      => $::fqdn,
    Include       => '/etc/zabbix/zabbix_agent2.d/*.conf',
    ControlSocket => '/tmp/agent.sock',
  }
}

...or the same config in Hiera:

zabbix_agent2::config:
  PidFile: '/run/zabbix/zabbix_agent2.pid'
  LogFile: '/var/log/zabbix/zabbix_agent2.log'
  LogFileSize: 0
  Server: '10.10.10.10'
  ServerActive: '10.10.10.10'
  Hostname: "%{::fqdn}"
  Include: '/etc/zabbix/zabbix_agent2.d/*.conf'
  ControlSocket: '/tmp/agent.sock'

Will be represented in zabbix_agent2.conf like this:

PidFile=/run/zabbix/zabbix_agent2.pid
LogFile=/var/log/zabbix/zabbix_agent2.log
LogFileSize=0
Server=10.10.10.10
ServerActive=10.10.10.10
Hostname=server.domain.com
Include=/etc/zabbix/zabbix_agent2.d/*.conf
ControlSocket=/tmp/agent.sock

Limitations

This module only handles the Zabbix Agent 2 package, config and service. All other special requirements (such as modules, custom monitoring scripts etc.) are outside the scope.

Tested on

  • CentOS 8
  • Ubuntu 20.04
