Zabbix.jl

Julia bindings for Zabbix API 🔥

  • The package has been tested over version 3.2.11.
  • Listed under the Zabbix website here

Installation

Since Zabbix is registered in METADATA.jl, you can directly install it like,

julia> Pkg.add("Zabbix")

Update

julia> Pkg.update("Zabbix")

How it works?

Please make sure that you have a valid Zabbix URL available along with the right access levels. In case you have only read access on the zabbix server, you may not be able to use configuration and management operations. Full read & write access is desired.

Creating a ZabbixAPI instance

julia> zabbix = Zabbix.ZabbixAPI("http://SERVER_IP/zabbix/api_jsonrpc.php","USERNAME","******",false)
Zabbix.ZabbixAPI("http://SERVER_IP/zabbix/api_jsonrpc.php", "USERNAME","******",false, 0, Dict("Content-Type"=>"application/json-rpc"), "2.0")

Note that I have set verbose=false. However, by default we have, verbose=true. Hence only set verbose=false if you are okay continuing without the info messages.

Get the Zabbix API's version Info

julia> Zabbix.api_version(zabbix)
v"3.2.11"

julia>typeof(Zabbix.api_version(zabbix))
VersionNumber

Get the auth token

julia> Zabbix.auth_token(zabbix)
"e8f8354d66f7fac2691f5c7441b8dfa0"

Get all hosts for a user

julia> Zabbix.get_all_hosts(zabbix)
Dict{String,Any} with 3 entries:
  "id"      => 1
  "jsonrpc" => "2.0"
  "result"  => Any[Dict{String,Any}(Pair{String,Any}("host", "localhost"),Pair{String,Any}("interfaces", Any[Dict{String,Any}(Pair{String,An…

Make any request to the zabbix server

The make_request function requires you to pass methods(aka Zabbix methods like hosts.get etc) and params ie. parameters in a form of a Dict() object. A easy sample is given on Zabbix's official website

# another way to get the zabbix version
julia> Zabbix.make_request(zabbix, "apiinfo.version", Dict())
v"3.2.11"

# getting the details of a host given its hostname
julia> method = "host.get"
"host.get"

julia> params = Dict("output"=>"extend", "filter"=>Dict("host"=>["localhost"]))
Dict{String,Any} with 2 entries:
  "output" => "extend"
  "filter" => Dict("host"=>String["localhost"])

julia> Zabbix.make_request(zabbix, method, params)
Dict{String,Any} with 3 entries:
  "id"      => 1
  "jsonrpc" => "2.0"
  "result"  => Any[Dict{String,Any}(Pair{String,Any}("lastaccess", "0"),Pair{String,Any}("ipmi_privilege", "2"),Pair{String,Any}("ipmi_error…

 julia> Zabbix.make_request(zabbix, method, params)["result"][1]
Dict{String,Any} with 39 entries:
