Alexei Vladishev

I am extremely excited about an impressive list of new functionality and improvements included into Zabbix 3.4. Zabbix sets a new standard for enterprise monitoring solutions and helps medium and large businesses be more efficient and save millions by switching from traditional heavy monitoring tools to Zabbix.

Our users and partners love unmatched openness and flexibility of Zabbix that comes at much lower cost.

What’s New in Zabbix 3.4?

Here's a quick overview of some new features:

  • Preprocess collected data in an efficient way

In Zabbix 3.4, all item value preprocessing options are put in the hands of the user under a new Preprocessing tab in item configuration, among which are custom multiplier, calculation delta value, Regular expression, XML XPath and JSON Path.

  • Execute commands through proxies

Remote commands and global scripts are now executed on hosts monitored by proxies. You can now execute a remote command either by the agent or by the proxy itself.

  • Customize your dashboard

Zabbix 3.4 comes with a pile of dashboard improvements: support of multiple dashboards with ownership and sharing options, support of new widgets with drag & drop capabilities, new filtering options, implemented API for dashboards and more!

  • Receive notifications faster with parallel alerts

Alerts become parallel, as there is no single alerter for the notifications no more. You can now distribute as well as limit alerts to several processes through the StartAlerters configuration parameter.

  • Manage time periods easily using macros

User macros and time suffixes (such as 30s, 5m, 2h, 1d, 1w) are now supported in item update intervals and many more locations where time periods are specified in Zabbix.

  • Be notified on problem acknowledgement

Have an acknowledged problem? Receive a notification immediately! Manage the information included in the notification with the Acknowledgement operations tab.
