release 3.0.2


ZabbixDBA is fast, flexible, and continuously developing plugin to monitor your RDBMS.

ZabbixDBA uses threading of DBI connections which is good for monitoring of multiple database instances simultaneously. Just configure it, run daemon and it will do all the job. Currently there are template and query set only for Oracle database, but Perl DBI supports any type of RDBMS:

  • Oracle
  • MySQL
  • MS SQL
  • PostgreSQL
  • DB2, etc.

You can find full list of DBD modules here:

This plugin tested with Oracle, PostgreSQL, and MySQL, and it's 100% compatible with them (but be sure to install appropriate drivers and DBD::... module)

Feel free to fork and contribute!


Copy project source to desired directory. If path will differ from default (/opt/zdba) be sure to change it in startup script.

  • Open init.d/zdba file and carefully check all paths.
  • Put this scrip to /etc/init.d directory and allow ZabbixDBA to run automatically on system startup
cp init.d/zdba /etc/init.d
chmod +x /etc/init.d/zdba
/sbin/chkconfig zdba on     # enable automatic startup/shutdown

To install all Perl requirements execute the following in plugin directory:

cpanm --installdeps /opt/zdba


/sbin/service zdba {start|stop|restart|reload|status}

After service startup you can monitor logfiles:

  • log/zdba.log - main logfile
  • log/zdba.err - errors that were not caught by logger

You can also enable DEBUG log mode at conf/log4perl.conf


  1. Create user ZABBIX (or whatever you want) in database.
  2. Grant him privileges regarding your privacy policy.
  3. Add your database credentials just like described in conf/ (see more here).
