I finally created a repository on GitHub for all of my Zabbix scripts (or, if you want to go directly to the repository: https://github.com/untergeek/zabbix-grab-bag)

This is the culmination of a dream that started a few years ago. I wanted a way to share my scripts in a way that others would be able to both use and improve them. GitHub is the chosen vessel.

Rather than making this a true project, I envision it as more of a “grab-bag” of projects/scripts/templates from myself and others. And you should be able to license your own scripts however you want, too.

So check it out! Contribute! Let’s make Zabbix even more awesome!

    thx for this nice work!
    Too bad, that the elasticsearch xml template can be
    imported in Zabbix 1.8.11 but is not showing up anywhere 🙁
    Any ideas Perhaps?

    I wish it were simple, but there is so much change between 1.8 and 2.0. They added host interface dependencies on items and a lot of other things. You may be able to simply read the XML and re-create.

      hello sir,
      actually m following your templates but still failed to monitor ES, m confused where ESzabbix.py & ESzabbix.userparm is going to insert, at zabbix server or at elasticsearch machine ?

      • Aaron says:

        Part of the problem is that the script & template are based on a past version of the Elasticsearch API. The recent changes break this. I have not taken the time to chase this down and try to fix it. It is a lot of work.
