Aliases (item keys) for zabbix agent should be better described

      Description

      1. Regarding an "Alias" parameter a page:
      https://www.zabbix.com/documentation/2.0/manual/appendix/config/zabbix_agentd
      doesn't have clear description and example for the parameter.
      since this page:
      https://www.zabbix.com/documentation/2.0/manual/appendix/config/zabbix_agentd_win
      is much better.

      Need to extend *nix page and review windows' one. For example this sentence looks complicated:

      Aliases cannot be used for parameters defined in "PerfCounter" configuration file records.

      I think it could be:
      "Aliases cannot be reused in "PerfCounter" parameters."

      Description also should provide a hint that it allows to create several items in zabbix frontend with different custom keys, which will return identical value from agent.
      Might be single workaround in case: need several LLD rules with identical keys but with different filters.

      2. Default zabbix_agentd.conf must have the parameter syntax example. Also need to mention that multiple aliases are allowed.

      3. For both 1 and 2: why we say "Sets an alias for parameter" ?
      Why not "Sets an alias for item key" ?
      Which would be more correct! IMO.
