    Description

      With Zabbix 2.4.x, an empty LogFile configuration option meant "use syslog".
      When upgrading to Zabbix 3.0, you have to set "LogType=system".

      Not commenting LogFile option makes zabbix-agent start & fork, but a process is kept as zombie:

      # ps fauxww | grep zabbix[_-]agent
      root      4263  0.0  0.0   4180   732 pts/0    S+   16:51   0:00  |       \_ /bin/sh /etc/init.d/zabbix-agent restart
      root      4288  0.0  0.0   4180   736 pts/0    S+   16:51   0:00  |           \_ /bin/sh /etc/init.d/zabbix-agent start
      zabbix    4296  0.0  0.0      0     0 pts/0    Z+   16:51   0:00  |               \_ [zabbix_agentd] <defunct>
      
      
      zabbix    4298  0.0  0.0  64824   932 ?        S    16:51   0:00 /usr/sbin/zabbix_agentd
      zabbix    4299  0.0  0.0  64824  1048 ?        S    16:51   0:00  \_ /usr/sbin/zabbix_agentd: collector [idle 1 sec]
      zabbix    4300  0.0  0.0  64824  1076 ?        S    16:51   0:00  \_ /usr/sbin/zabbix_agentd: listener #1 [waiting for connection]
      zabbix    4301  0.0  0.0  64824  1052 ?        S    16:51   0:00  \_ /usr/sbin/zabbix_agentd: listener #2 [waiting for connection]
      zabbix    4302  0.0  0.0  64824   944 ?        S    16:51   0:00  \_ /usr/sbin/zabbix_agentd: listener #3 [waiting for connection]
      zabbix    4303  0.0  0.0  64824   688 ?        S    16:51   0:00  \_ /usr/sbin/zabbix_agentd: active checks #1 [idle 1 sec]
      

      Same behaviour occurs with zabbix_server. I haven't tested proxy yet, but I guess it would behave the same.

      If LogType is set to system, Zabbix should completely ignore LogFile configuration option.
