Zabbix Receiver

Zabbix receiver is accepting the metrics of Zabbix Agent Active Checks protocol format into the Meter System. Zabbix Agent is base on GPL-2.0 License.

Module define

receiver-zabbix:
  selector: ${SW_RECEIVER_ZABBIX:default}
  default:
    # Export tcp port, Zabbix agent could connected and transport data
    port: 10051
    # Bind to host
    host: 0.0.0.0
    # Enable config when receive agent request
    activeFiles: agent

Configuration file

Zabbix receiver is configured via a configuration file. The configuration file defines everything related to receiving from agents, as well as which rule files to load.

OAP can load the configuration at bootstrap. If the new configuration is not well-formed, OAP fails to start up. The files are located at $CLASSPATH/zabbix-rules.

The file is written in YAML format, defined by the scheme described below. Square brackets indicate that a parameter is optional.

An example for zabbix agent configuration could be found here. You could find the Zabbix agent detail items from Zabbix Agent documentation.
