    What are the systems requirements for the installation of Zabbix Agent on a host?

    1. How much disk space does it take?
    2. How much storage does it take?
    3. What’s the CPU load?

    I installed the agent and I can connect with my zabbix server via Telnet.
    But my zabbix can’t monitor my server.
    In the log files there is ‘cannot send list of active checks to “ipadress”: host “hostname” not found’
    Can you help me?

    Nice guide, all OK!
    So one question. How can i add DHCP Windows Clients?
    My network have lot of Win 7 clients, how can i add all?
    Thanks for guide!

    • Matei Cezar says:

      You need to configure Windows clients with static IP addresses. If you use a DHCP server to automatically assign IP addresses to windows clients on you network then you need to manually instruct DHCP server to assign the same IP address for each client based on the specific NIC’s MAC address, even if you use a Linux or Windows DHCP server.

      Also, don’t forget that every monitored windows host need to have Zabbix agent installed and configured.

    I followed the guide, added susccess windows server into zabbix to mornitor

    But i got some problem when showing total memory, graph no display anything , it’s just empty

    @Matei Cezar: Can you help me?

    Thank so much

    • Matei Cezar says:

      Does other graphs concerning that specific windows host impose the same same problem, no data appears? What about other hosts graphics, or linux hosts? Their graphs are displayed? Did you test the zabbix agent using telnet to see if it’s reachable from zabbix server? A blind suggestion for now would be to check the time on the windows monitored host to see if it’s synchronized with Zabbix server.Also, on zabbix server check the php.ini timezone setting!
