Zabbix Proxies may greatly simplify maintenance of Zabbix environment
and increase performance of the central Zabbix server.
Also, use of Zabbix Proxies is the easiest way of implementing centralized
and distributed monitoring, when all Agents and Proxies report to one
Zabbix server and all data is collected centrally.
Zabbix offers advanced monitoring, alerting and visualization features,
including distributed monitoring, auto-discovery, notifications, etcetera.
zabbix_proxy needs to run under its own user/group. This has been assigned
to the following by SlackBuilds.org, but feel free to change it on your
system for consistency with local assignments.
User: zabbix UID: 228 GID: 228
group: zabbix GID: 228
You can pass alternate values for the user and group using
ZABBIXUSER and ZABBIXGROUP variables when running the build script.
For some important post-build and basic configuration instructions,
see the included README.SLACKWARE file.
