ZABBIX BUGS AND ISSUES

Frontend didn't know zabbix server is runing

Details

Description

When you use only passive items and set the parameter:

### Option: StartTrappers
#<----->Number of pre-forked instances of trappers.
#
# Mandatory: no
# Range: 0-1000
# Default:
StartTrappers=0

Zabbix will never listen on port 10051 and then front end will never know zabbix server is runing.
But server work correctly.

we should probably document this, nothing to change codewise

Of course, your choice

The simple solution is to have at least one Trapper active at system.

I agree, it should be documented and closed.

(1) let's add it also as a note in the server config file, it seems important enough

added the following to server config file :

Trappers accept incoming connections from Zabbix sender, active agents, active proxies and child nodes.
At least one trapper process must be running to display server availability in the frontend.

and the following to the proxy conf file :

Trappers accept incoming connections from Zabbix sender and active agents.

committed to 2.0 in r30561 and to trunk in r30562.
