      Description

      If we want to configure an aggregated check, we configure a new item with type "zabbix aggregate" and next we must provide a key.

      Just like all other items, we hit the "select" button, to prevent some useless typing, but unlike other items, the aggregate item keys are not working out of the box.

      We are presented with the following key:

      grpfunc[group,key,func,<param>]

      As far as I am aware, the only item that comes from the select button where we must change something more than the parameters.

       

      As per documentation, there are 4 group functions supported:

       

      Group function Description
      grpavg Average value
      grpmin Minimum value
      grpmax Maximum value
      grpsum Sum of values

      Why can't we have 4 predefined items?

      Key Name
      grpavg[group,key,func,<param>] Aggregate checks do not require any agent running on a host being monitored. Zabbix server collects aggregate information by doing direct database queries. See Zabbix Manual. grpavg will calculate the average value, based on the various parameters supplied
      grpmin[group,key,func,<param>] Aggregate checks do not require any agent running on a host being monitored. Zabbix server collects aggregate information by doing direct database queries. See Zabbix Manual. grpmin will calculate the minimum value, based on the various parameters supplied
      grpmax[group,key,func,<param>] Aggregate checks do not require any agent running on a host being monitored. Zabbix server collects aggregate information by doing direct database queries. See Zabbix Manual. grpmax will calculate the maximum value, based on the various parameters supplied
      grpsum[group,key,func,<param>] Aggregate checks do not require any agent running on a host being monitored. Zabbix server collects aggregate information by doing direct database queries. See Zabbix Manual. grpsum will calculate the sum of values, based on the various parameters supplied

      It's not that it'll be the longest list in Zabbix, and will provide users a better experience not having to check the documentation for the functions.
