DESCRIPTION

Gitter

This cookbook install zabbix-agent and zabbix-server.

By defaut the cookbook installs zabbix-agent, check the attribute for enable/disable zabbix_server / web or disable zabbix_agent installation.

Default login password for zabbix frontend is admin / zabbix CHANGE IT !

USAGE

Be careful when you update your server version, you need to run the sql patch in /opt/zabbix-$VERSION.

If you do not specify source_url attributes for agent or server they will be set to download the specified branch and version from the official Zabbix source repository. If you want to upgrade later, you need to either nil out the source_url attributes or set them to the url you wish to download from.

node['zabbix']['agent']['source_url'] = nil
node['zabbix']['server']['source_url'] = nil

Please include the default recipe before using any other recipe.

Installing the Agent :

"recipe[zabbix]"

Installing the Server :

"recipe[zabbix]",  
"recipe[zabbix::server]"

Installing the Database :

"recipe[mysql::server]",
"recipe[zabbix]",
"recipe[zabbix::database]"

Installing all 3 - Database MUST come before Server

"recipe[database::mysql]",
"recipe[mysql::server]",
"recipe[zabbix]",
"recipe[zabbix::database]",
"recipe[zabbix::server]"

NOTE:

If you are running on Redhat, Centos, Scientific or Amazon, you will need packages from EPEL. Include "recipe[yum::epel]" in your runlist or satisfy these requirements some other way.

"recipe[yum::epel]"

ATTRIBUTES

Don't forget to set :

node.set['zabbix']['agent']['servers'] = ["Your_zabbix_server.com","secondaryserver.com"]
node.set['zabbix']['web']['fqdn'] or you will not have the zabbix web interface

Note :

A Zabbix agent running on the Zabbix server will need to :

  • use a different account than the on the server uses or it will be able to spy on private data.
  • specify the local Zabbix server using the localhost (127.0.0.1, ::1) address.

example :

Server

  node.set['zabbix']['server']['branch'] = "ZABBIX%20Latest%20Stable"
  node.set['zabbix']['server']['version'] = "2.0.0"
  node.set['zabbix']['server']['source_url'] = nil
  ndoe.set['zabbix']['server']['install_method'] = "source"

Agent

  node.set['zabbix']['agent']['branch'] = "ZABBIX%20Latest%20Stable"
  node.set['zabbix']['agent']['version'] = "2.0.0"
  node.set['zabbix']['agent']['source_url'] = nil
  node.set['zabbix']['agent']['install_method'] = "prebuild"

Database

node.set['zabbix']['database']['install_method'] = 'mysql'
node.set['zabbix']['database']['dbname'] = "zabbix"
node.set['zabbix']['database']['dbuser'] = "zabbix"
node.set['zabbix']['database']['dbhost'] = "localhost"
node.set['zabbix']['database']['dbpassword'] = 'password'
node.set['zabbix']['database']['dbport'] = "3306"

If you are using AWS RDS

node.set['zabbix']['database']['install_method'] = 'rds_mysql'
node.set['zabbix']['database']['rds_master_user'] = 'username'
node.set['zabbix']['database']['rds_master_password'] = 'password'

RECIPES

default

The default recipe creates the Zabbix user and directories used by all Zabbix components.

Optionally, it installs the Zabbix agent.

You can control the agent install with the following attributes:

node['zabbix']['agent']['install'] = true
node['zabbix']['agent']['install_method'] = 'source'

agent_prebuild

Downloads and installs the Zabbix agent from a pre built package

If you are on a machine in the RHEL family of platforms, then you must have your package manager setup to allow installation of:

package "redhat-lsb"

You can control the agent version with:

node['zabbix']['agent']['version']

agent_source

Downloads and installs the Zabbix agent from source

If you are on a machine in the RHEL family of platforms, then you will need to install packages from the EPEL repository. The easiest way to do this is to add the following recipe to your runlist before zabbix::agent_source

recipe "yum::epel"

You can control the agent install with:

node['zabbix']['agent']['branch']
node['zabbix']['agent']['version']
node['zabbix']['agent']['configure_options']

database

WARNING: This recipe persists your database credentials back to the Chef server as plaintext node attributes. To prevent this, consume the zabbix_database LWRP in your own wrapper cookbook.

Creates and initializes the Zabbix database

Currenly only supports MySql and RDS MySql databases

If they are not already set, this recipe will generate the following attributes:

node['zabbix']['database']['dbpassword']
node['mysql']['server_root_password'] # Not generated if you are using RDS

You can control the database version with:

node['zabbix']['server']['branch']
node['zabbix']['server']['version']

The database setup uses the following attributes:

node['zabbix']['database']['dbhost']
node['zabbix']['database']['dbname']
node['zabbix']['database']['dbuser']
node['zabbix']['database']['dbpassword']

node['zabbix']['database']['install_method']

If install_method is 'mysql' you also need:

node['mysql']['server_root_password']

If install_method is 'rds_mysql' you also need:

node['zabbix']['database']['rds_master_username']
node['zabbix']['database']['rds_master_password']

firewall

Opens firewall rules to allow Zabbix nodes to communicate with each other.

server

Delegates to other recipes to install the Zabbix server and Web components.

You can control the server and web installs with the following attributes:

node['zabbix']['server']['install'] = true
node['zabbix']['server']['install_method'] = 'source'
node['zabbix']['web']['install'] = true

If you are using a MySql or RDS MySql database make sure your runlist includes:

"recipe[database::mysql]",
"recipe[mysql::client]"

If you are user a Postgres database make sure your runlist includes:

"recipe[database::postgresql]",
"recipe[postgresql::client]",

server_source

Downloads and installs the Zabbix Server component from source

If you are on a machine in the RHEL family of platforms, then you will need to install packages from the EPEL repository. The easiest way to do this is to add the following recipe to your runlist before zabbix::server_source

recipe "yum::epel"

You can control the server install with:

node['zabbix']['server']['branch']
node['zabbix']['server']['version']
node['zabbix']['server']['configure_options']

The server also needs to know about:

node['zabbix']['database']['dbhost']
node['zabbix']['database']['dbname']
node['zabbix']['database']['dbuser']
node['zabbix']['database']['dbpassword']
node['zabbix']['database']['dbport']

web

Creates an Apache site for the Zabbix Web component
