Zabbix management command-line client

Project description

Zabbix management command-line client

zabbix-cli-ent allows to perform actions on a Zabbix server through command line.

Zabbix web interface usually is the most suitable way for administration tasks, however there are times when you need to modify settings non-interactively (scripts, ..) or even certain actions easily done by command line.

Getting Started

Install zabbix-cli-ent using pip, either by getting the version uploaded in PyPi:

$ pip install zm

or the one from the current repo:

$ git clone https://github.com/orviz/zabbix-cli-ent.git
$ cd zabbix-cli-ent && pip install .

Basic Usage

$ zm --help

will list the current actions that can be performed.

Depending on the subcommand it will have different options; rely on the –help option to learn about each one.

NOTE: You can provide the connection details as options or via a configuration file. Either way, the login, password and url must be provided in order to get a successfully connection.

Use it programatically

You can also use zabbix-cli-ent as a Python library to get data from a Zabbix API.

For that you first need to provide the credentials to be able to access any of the available functionality. As an example:

import zm.trigger
from oslo.config import cfg

CONF = cfg.CONF
CONF.username="foo"
CONF.password="bar"
CONF.url="https://example.com/zabbix"


print zm.trigger.list(host="host.example.com",
                      priority="DISASTER",
                      omit_ack=True,)

Extending Functionality

The code allows to easily extend the functionality. To do so:

  1. Create a new Command inherited class that will handle the new functionality.
    • __init__(), where you will define the new action’s options.
    • run(), sets the work to be done.
  2. Add the brand new class to: commands.py > add_command_parsers()

There you go!
