Short Description
Zabbix 3.0 with vPoller
Full Description

Zabbix3 with vPoller

This container runs vPoller based off of the Zabbix Github repo

Compiled Zabbix with almost all features (MySQL support, Java, SNMP,
Curl, IPMI, IPv6, Jabber, fping), vPoller Module and Zabbix web UI based on CentOS 7,
Supervisor, Nginx, PHP. Image requires external MySQL/MariaDB database (you can
run MySQL/MariaDB also as Docker container).

Standard Dockerized Zabbix deployment

# create /var/lib/mysql as persistent volume storage
docker run -d -v /var/lib/mysql --name zabbix-db-storage busybox:latest

# start DB for Zabbix - default 1GB innodb_buffer_pool_size is used
docker run \
    -d \
    --name zabbix-db \
    -v /backups:/backups \
    -v /etc/localtime:/etc/localtime:ro \
    --volumes-from zabbix-db-storage \
    --env="MARIADB_USER=zabbix" \
    --env="MARIADB_PASS=my_password" \

# start Zabbix linked to started DB
docker run \
    -d \
    --name zabbix \
    -p 80:80 \
    -p 10051:10051 \
    -v /etc/localtime:/etc/localtime:ro \
    --link zabbix-db:zabbix.db \
    --env="ZS_DBHost=zabbix.db" \
    --env="ZS_DBUser=zabbix" \
    --env="ZS_DBPassword=my_password" \
    --env="" \
    --env="VS_UN=vpoller@vsphere.local" \
    --env="VS_PW=VPoller1!" \
    --env="ZB_UN=Admin" \
    --env="ZB_PW=zabbix" \
# wait ~60 seconds for Zabbix initialization
# Zabbix web will be available on the port 80, Zabbix server on the port 10051

# Backup of Zabbix configuration data only
docker exec \
    -ti zabbix-db \
    /zabbix-backup/zabbix-mariadb-dump -u zabbix -p my_password -o /backups

# Full DB backup of Zabbix
docker exec \
    -ti zabbix-db \
    bash -c "\
    mysqldump -u zabbix -pmy_password zabbix | \
    bzip2 -cq9 > /backups/zabbix_db_dump_$(date +%Y-%m-%d-%H.%M.%S).sql.bz2"

After starting Zabbix you must import the Configuration Templates located in extras/templates. This can be done by logging into Zabbix (Admin/zabbix) and then going to configuration -> templates -> import

Environmental variables

You can use environmental variables to config Zabbix and Zabbix web UI (PHP). Available

vPoller Variables
Variable Required? Notes
VS_UN YES vSphere username (Read-Only Access)
VS_PW YES vSphere Password
ZB_UN OPTIONAL Specify Zabbix UN for using the Auto-Import
ZB_PW OPTIONAL Specify Zabbix PW for using the Auto-Import

Specifying the ZB_UN and ZB_PW uses the process of Importing vSphere objects as regular Zabbix hosts.

If you don't specify this, you need to configure Zabbix using the vPoller Documentation about Monitoring your VMware environment with vPoller and Zabbix.

Zabbix Variables

NOTE: Do NOT set the ''ZS_LoadModule'' as this will disable the vPoller module.

Please see the Zabbix Documentation here.

Configuration from volume

Please see the Zabbix Documentation here.
