thomasvandoren/zabbix — version 0.0.1 Sep 19th 2012

Zabbix Report Processor

Build Status


A Puppet report handler for sending data from puppet runs to Zabbix.


  • open4
  • puppet
  • zabbix_sender binary (comes with zabbix-agent packages, usually)

Installation and Usage

Puppet Master and Agents

  • Install the open4 gem on the puppet master.
sudo gem install open4
  • Install puppet-zabbix as a module in your puppet master's module path.

  • Update the zabbix_host, zabbix_port, and zabbix_sender variables in zabbix.yaml. Copy zabbix.yaml to /etc/puppet.

  • Enable pluginsync and reports on your master and clients in puppet.conf.

report     = true
pluginsync = true

reports = zabbix
  • Run the puppet client to sync the report as a plugin.


  • Import the zabbix template in doc/zabbix_template.xml.

  • Link the template to hosts managed by puppet. Note that the "technical" host name will need to match the puppet certname (defaults to FQDN) for each host.
