Zabbix 2.2 Vmware 5.1 config tuning

Share This:

For virtual machine monitoring to work, Zabbix should be compiled with the –with-libxml2 and –with-libcurl compilation options.

https://www.zabbix.com/documentation/2.2/manual/vm_monitoring

After linking it with Vcenter, here are some recommended changes to the service.

/etc/zabbix/zabbix-server.conf

StartIPMIPollers=5 ( for ICMP – also requires installation of fping)
StartPingers=25 (ICMP etc)
StartHTTPPollers=5
StartVmwareCollectors=10 (Essential for monitoring vm’s)
VMwareFrequency=60 (frequency)
VMwareCacheSize=1024M (depends on number of vm’s)
