Getting started

Default configuration

The service will be configured to serve run a Zabbix monitoring agent.

Example inventory

To enable the Zabbix agent service on a host it needs to be included in the specific Ansible inventory group:

[debops_service_zabbix_agent]
hostname

Example playbook

If you are using this role without DebOps, here's an example Ansible playbook that uses the debops.zabbix_agent role:

---

- name: Install and manage Zabbix agent
  collections: [ 'debops.debops', 'debops.roles01',
                 'debops.roles02', 'debops.roles03' ]
  hosts: [ 'debops_service_zabbix_agent' ]
  become: True

  environment: '{{ inventory__environment | d({})
                   | combine(inventory__group_environment | d({}))
                   | combine(inventory__host_environment  | d({})) }}'

  roles:

    - role: etc_services
      tags: [ 'role::etc_services', 'skip::etc_services' ]
      etc_services__dependent_list:
        - '{{ zabbix_agent_server__etc_services__dependent_list }}'

    - role: ferm
      tags: [ 'role::ferm', 'skip::ferm' ]
      ferm__dependent_rules:
        - '{{ zabbix_agent__ferm__dependent_rules }}'

    - role: zabbix_agent
      tags: [ 'role::zabbix_agent', 'skip::zabbix_agent' ]
