      Description

      I find myself in the situation where I need to use agent.ping to verify Zabbix agent functionality. However, I need to be able to test the availability of the agent both in active and passive mode.

      Currently I'm using an Alias statement in the agent config file allow querying of agent.ping via another name. However, I'd rather have this as a builtin agent option.

      One way to do this could be via item parameters, extending agent.ping to also accept agent.ping[] would already solve the issue for me.

      Another way could be to specify passive and active to the item as follows:

      agent.ping[active]
      agent.ping[passive]
