module's quality. Each module is
given a score based on how well
the author has formatted their
code and documentation and
modules are also checked for
malware using VirusTotal.

Please note, the information below
is for guidance only and neither of
these methods should be considered
an endorsement by Puppet.

Zabbix Module

This module will install and configure a Zabbix Server or Proxy or Agent, according to your wishes.

Usage

Minimal server configuration

class { 'zabbix::server': }

This will do the typical install, configure and service management. Preseed file is autofill using alkivi_base module which :

  • search for mysql admin password in /root/.passwd/db/mysql
  • create zabbix password in /root/.passwd/db/zabbix
