  1. Sorry I've been busy for the past year getting a couple new warehouses up and running and a citrix farm rebuilt. the project is finally coming to and end hopefully in the next few weeks baring any fires. I was also waiting until we upgraded to LT11 to see if maybe they added something that would take grafana and zabbix place but doesn't look like they did.
  2. The only way i was able to do something like this is run a set variable on the current txt file content then use that variable along with the new txt to be added.
  3. hmm you might try taking the 1 out of the additional conditions.
  4. The only thing i can think of is that you dont have a time skew setup on EDF It should look like this

    you could add a file check and a script sleep function to sleep for 60 seconds or whatever if it doesn't see the file is uploaded. or just tell it to sleep with the sleep for 90 minutes with the sleep function is an option too.

    I dont know that much more needs to be done with it. it's worked pretty flawlessly for me for years.
  7. This is how i have mine setup.
  8. I've decided to do this in parts since I've been pretty strapped for time... so, I'll go over each server type and how to get it up and running, then fit them all together into the main dashboards that you will want in labtech. I’ve been working on getting things cleaned up and looking good to have something more to show but our firewall had other plans so ill go off of what I got so far. Labtech is great but Unfortunately it lacks in a good historical archive, charting and syslog scanning. So my goal was to get all of these integrated into LT as best as I could since they are really helpful to have when looking at bench-marking or watching for items that aren't necessarily ticket events but do cause delays or disruptions in service. so for the historical stuff I was using PRTG but with 100 sensors I couldn't do everything i needed. So I started using Zabbix and it seems to fill the void nicely plus it plays nice with the custom tabs which prtg doesn't work well at all with. I used the pre built zabbix server for mine but i don't recommend you do at all. It's easy to get going but in the end you will have problems with drive space and resources. it will break on you a few weeks after you have it installed so id recommend building it from scratch. I'm using Debian 8. The install instructions are here. https://www.zabbix.com/documentation/3.0/manual/installation/install_from_packages they give a pretty good rundown of the install process. you can get Debian 8 here. http://cdimage.debian.org/debian-cd/8.4.0/amd64/iso-dvd/ just grab the first dvd. If you're ok using the minimal install feel free but these instructions might not be any help with getting the server going if you do. once you start the installation just go through the first language setup etc... name your system enter your domain name password etc...and add a user once you get to the disk partitioning id recommend using the all files on one partition option. I had an issue with the var partition filling on a previous install so this will keep things a bit easier to deal with. on the next yes for the network mirror you will need it later. next you will have the option to select software. the only thing i select is SSH server and standard system utilities. once its done you can log in. either log in as the root user or log in as the user you created. you will want to install the net-tool package. if you are logged in as the user you will need to type su then enter the root password. then apt-get install net-tools once thats done you can run ifconfig which will get you an ip address to use ssh instead of the console. it's at least easier for me to use putty for copying and pasting in commands not to mention winscp to transfer and update files. you should see something like this. If you're using the ssh session you will not be able to log into it as root. so just log in as your user. type su and use your root password then type wget http://repo.zabbix.com/zabbix/3.0/debian/pool/main/z/zabbix-release/zabbix-release_3.0-1+jessie_all.deb dpkg -i zabbix-release_3.0-1+jessie_all.deb apt-get update It will install all of the prerequisite stuff automatically but will not configure them correctly so ill get to more on that in a sec. put in a password for the mysql server and remember it. once done type cd /usr/share/doc/zabbix-server-mysql zcat create.sql.gz | mysql -uroot zabbix -p use the password you created and it should build the database. now are almost ready to start the server the only thing left is to update the php.ini file with your time zone and the zabbix.conf with the user name and password for your accounts. you can start the server just to make sure the front end works but typing service zabbix-server start be sure to use http://ip.address/zabbix'>http://ip.address/zabbix you should see. if you try to continue though you will get errors. the php.ini file is located at /etc/php5/apache2/php.ini if your'e used to using vi then you most likely dont need this doc. I usually just use winscp to edit stuff. so load winscp you wont be able to use root on winscp so in the putty session typ su chmod 777 /etc/php5/apache2/php.ini then you will be able to just edit the file right from winscp and save it. The line you are looking for is [Date] ; Defines the default timezone used by the date functions ; http://php.net/date.timezone'>http://php.net/date.timezone ;date.timezone = just change it to [Date] ; Defines the default timezone used by the date functions ; http://php.net/date.timezone date.timezone =Pacific/Pitcairn you can find your time zone info here. http://php.net/manual/en/timezones.php once you save it then you will need to change the zabbix config. su chmod 777 /etc/zabbix/zabbix_server.conf open the config file uncomment (take out the #) and update the settings for your db with the root user and password. DBHost=localhost DBName=zabbix DBUser=root DBPassword=password once thats done then save the settings and you can either reboot or reload everything su service zabbix-server restart service apache2 restart go to http://ip.address/zabbix click next step then put in your db info again. next again You're done yay! The default user and pass is user: admin pass: zabbix you can download the windows agents here http://www.suiviperf.com/zabbix/index.php the labtech install scripts are attached as well. you will want to change the SERVER and SERVERACTIVE ips to the ip of your zabbix server in the script. you will also most likely want to update the agent info to the 3.0. it wasn't available at the time i put this all in place. now that the server is working you can either manually add hosts by clicking on configuration and hosts. then click the add host button. or setup auto discovery which is way easier. I'll update with how to do that as soon as i get some more time. Zabbix.zip
  9. unfortunately.... Sorry about the delay. As soon as I can get this stupid cisco ASA and cx modules working right, its been almost a month and last week it decided it wanted to completely stop working....... finally got it mostly fixed but still have a bit to go. along with scanner upgrades, ap replacements, and I wont even get into the stupid dell wyse thin client problems...... Luckily ill have some down time next week since they are sending me out of town.. On the pluss side they put out a new version of grafana so should be getting the how-to for that done tonight.
  10. I should have something by the end of next week unless something comes up.
  11. agreed. we were using prtg but zabbix seems to be a lot better for this kind of thing. I've been thinking though and after a few tests I think the way to go is take the zabbix info and import it into grafana then put it into LT. Takes the need to have multiple windows out. It will take a lot more time but i think will be worth it in the end. I'm thinking of putting together a step by step of configuring zabbix and grafana soon.
  12. I was asked to post instructions but first let me get some stuff out of the way since I run a small single client system that is built for internal support only. So that being said this is in no way secure. The zabbix system is internal only and so I dont need to setup any kind of security for it. The Zabbix 3.0 agent does however allow for secure transfer of data so you might be able to setup the agents to report to an external ip and just lock the servers http ports down. To get zabbix to let you attach the screens without building them one by one in the screen creator is giving guest rights to all devices. this will keep it from asking for a password when you open the windows in labtech. Anyway the idea here is to have zabbix screens report inside labtech like so. ok first off you will need to have a working zabbix server all setup and ready to go. If you dont have zabbix go get it or this wont work for you. Hopefully you've already setup screens for your devices now you're ready to get them integrated into LT. Create an EDF for the url to live. For this I used MAPURLC as the EDF name then create a custom tab as a web page. for the URL use %eMAPURLC% now that its done go to zabbix and go to the screen you want to import into Labtech. get the URL at the top make sure you select a screen dont just copy the default or the sid wont get selected. URL without sid URL With sid post the URLS In your EDFS I have a few screens that i have configured but im sure you get the idea. if you want the zabbix menu to show up just don't select the fullscreen option. For network Devices the custom tab plugin doesnt have the option to pull edfs so you will need to use an sql query instead in the URL field. $SQL$$SELECT `MAPURLC` FROM `v_extradatanetdevice` WHERE `id` = %id%$ The only thing you should need to change is the MAPURLC in the line to match the name of the EDF you created for network devices.
