Zabbix 1.8 Nearing Limited Support End

Five years ago we released the Zabbix 1.8 LTS and although we hate to say goodbye, we must look forward to the new possibilities (and Zabbix 3.0), sadly announcing that on the 30th of November Zabbix 1.8 will reach the end of its limited support.

Visit our life cycle and release policy page for more information.

Remember that you can upgrade to the latest stable version in the shortest time without a risk of losing valuable historical data, trends and configuration by using our upgrade services.

Run time housekeeper execution [ZBXNEXT-207]

One of the first interesting features added in Zabbix 3.0 is the ability to manually execute the housekeeper at any time. It is done by using the runtime control parameter -R of the Zabbix server. This feature can also be used to run the housekeeper according to your custom schedule.

On the Front Page of Sourceforge

Once again for three weeks in a row, Zabbix refuses to leave the front page of the largest open source applications and software directory -, chosen and featured as one of the Projects of the Week.

Now, thanks to your downloads, we have a real chance to be chosen as the Project of the Month!
