libzbxpgsql Build Status

This project provides comprehensive monitoring of PostgreSQL servers using a natively compiled Zabbix agent module, written in C.

A preconfigured Zabbix Template is also included for your convenience.

Sources in this project are used to compile libzbxpgsql.so which may be loaded by a Zabbix agent using the LoadModule directive. The module enables discovery and monitoring of tablespaces, databases, namespaces, tables, indexes, etc.


To compile the agent module the following items are required:

If you are building from sources cloned from GitHub, you first need to regenerate the build scripts using ./autogen.sh. Otherwise:

./configure --with-zabbix=/usr/src/zabbix
sudo make install

Module file libzbxpgsql.so will then be installed in /usr/local/lib.

If you are using a packaged version of Zabbix, you may with to redirect the installation directories as follows:

$ sudo make prefix=/usr sysconfdir=/etc libdir=/usr/lib64 install

Note: Please use a clean copy of the Zabbix source code. Once you configure or build the Zabbix sources, they are no longer useful for building this module.

To build the RPM package on a RHEL6+ family system with rpm-build installed:

make rpm
