Installation on a Zabbix Client

Copy userparameter_lisk.conf to /etc/zabbix/zabbix_agentd.d/ - userparameter_lisk.conf must be updated if you want to use a different port than port 8000

Restart the zabbix-agent

Installation in the Zabbix Server

In your Zabbix frontend: Configuration-Templates section, Import bottom in the right.

Choose the XML file (for server installation: lisk_zabbix_template.xml) and import it.

Apply this new template to your LISK servers.
