I started to use Zabbix appliance (server, proxy and agent) by editing zabbix_*.conf. Almost every time I upgrade one of them, the classic
So I reset the conf file to its default and add only one line at the end:
In this way, the diff are quicker to inspect, having moved all the customized parameters to an external file.
Still, I have to accept all new changes made by package distributor and then re-add the last line.
It would be convenient for sysadmin, if zabbix would include, as default, every .conf inside a directory, for example /etc/zabbix/zabbix_proxy.d/.conf. Like Apache or MySQL do. In this way using orchestration tool to upgrade many proxies and agent would proceed uninterruptedly.
