Zabbix Pusher

Zabbix Pusher is a gem with a set of binaries to push data to a zabbix server

The current package provides a implementation for querying jmx data with jolokia from tomcat and a predefined tomcat_template.xml to import in zabbix. You must deploy the jolkia.war to your tomcat instance.

Quick Start

Install the gem with.

gem install zabbix_pusher

import the examples/tomcat_template.xml into your zabbix server

zabbix_pusher  -z -s  -v
