Thank You for Helping Zabbix 2.2 Happen!

As you all already know, on Tuesday last week, November 12th, Zabbix team announced the release and availability of Zabbix 2.2. To celebrate this important and joyful event, Zabbix team organized a small Zabbix 2.2 party in the Riga office, featuring wide smiles, satisfaction, good music and a sweet cake.

More details on this celebration, including some pictures from it, you can find on the Zabbix Weblog. On the same page you will also find a little surprise waiting for you – a video on Zabbix 2.2, called “That’s how we made it!”. Have fun!

The PostgreSQL Monitoring Template for Zabbix

We are glad to introduce to you a new entry in the Zabbix 3rd Party Tool section – the PostgreSQL monitoring template for Zabbix (pg_monz), designed by two Zabbix Certified Partners, SRA OSS Inc. Japan and TIS Inc.

pg_monz is a template for monitoring PostgreSQL for various parameters such as alive, resource, performance and others. This tool supports automatic discovery of databases and tables using the discovery feature of Zabbix and can automatically start the monitoring process. Please download it and give it a try!

Gettext made optional for Zabbix frontend [ZBX-7250]

The Zabbix frontend comes with multiple language support, but for the translations to work, it used to require the PHP to be compiled with gettext module support. Starting with 2.2.1, installing gettext is optional, so if you're not planning to use Zabbix in a different language, you can skip it. This will make the installation procedure a bit easier.
