    Details

      Description

      It's not very obvious if not test it with zabbix_get and recent agent versions 2.4+, so would be useful to document.
      Especially a details that the forked process will be terminated.

      As an example debuglog of agent 2.4.7rc1 (revision 54982):

      # time zabbix_get -s localhost -k sleep[55]
      ZBX_NOTSUPPORTED: Timeout while executing a shell script.
      
      real    0m3.005s
      user    0m0.004s
      sys     0m0.000s
      
        3055:20151029:100154.734 listener #2 [processing request]
        3055:20151029:100154.734 Requested [sleep[55]]
        3055:20151029:100154.734 In zbx_popen() command:' sleep 55; echo 55'
        3055:20151029:100154.735 End of zbx_popen():9
        3058:20151029:100154.735 zbx_popen(): executing script
      ...
        3055:20151029:100157.734 In zbx_waitpid()
        3055:20151029:100157.734 zbx_waitpid() killed by signal 15
        3055:20151029:100157.735 End of zbx_waitpid():3058
        3055:20151029:100157.735 listener #2 [waiting for connection]

      For example we have such details documented for remote commands and that's useful, https://www.zabbix.com/documentation/2.4/manual/config/notifications/action/operation/remote_command
