      Description

      The documentation for the host object in the manual page state about the 'available' and 'status' fields:

      available integer (readonly) Availability of Zabbix agent.
       
      Possible values are:
      0 - (default) unknown;
      1 - available;
      2 - unavailable.
      status integer Status and function of the host.
       
      Possible values are:
      0 - (default) monitored host;
      1 - unmonitored host.

      This isn't true, as the host.get API call return a string in those JSON fields and not an integer:

      {"jsonrpc":"2.0","result":[{"hostid":"10502","available":"0","status":"0"}],"id":1}
      

      This can be confusing as people that develop SDK for the zabbix APIs should be aware of
      the additional conversions involved.

      The solution is to fix the documentation.
