What’s New in Zabbix 4.0?
Get inspired by a quick overview of some new features included in this release:
Use, visualize and analyze collected data in the new redesigned graph widget. Work with multiple data sets, select sets of metrics or individual metrics for graphing, configure graph line-style and legend layout as you wish as well as observe information about discovered problems straight on the graph.
- Stay focused, avoid distraction
Kiosk mode is optimized for video walls and is now supported in all pages where full screen mode is available. Dashboard, Problems, Latest data and all other Monitoring menu sections can now be used in this mode. In addition to that, dashboard widgets got a much cleaner look with no footer information.
- Same screen size, more details
The new compact view mode is a must-have for NOC engineers. It is designed to increase operational efficiency and get a clear understanding of problem tackling priorities. Use compact view mode to maximize the amount of problems visible at the same time.
- Solve problems faster and smarter
Change problem severity, manually close the required problem without acknowledging, commenting, or sending a message! All the operations are now controlled by user permissions and can be changed anytime.
- Faster and more secure distributed monitoring
Compression for communication with Proxies, enabled by default, is introduced by Zabbix 4.0! A compression layer massively reduces the size of transferred data and the amount of network traffic thus leading to noticeable performance improvements.
- Collect performance and availability data using HTTP and HTTPS protocols
The new HTTP agent item type is introduced and can be used along with data preprocessing and dependent items to get a super powerful combination for efficient data collection from Rest API, XML, SOAP, JSON RPC, Prometheus and even plain text data sources.
