    • Zabbix since 4.4

      Sometime in the Zabbix 4.x era, the Zabbix integrations teams re-worked two of the very most important templates of the whole Zabbix stack (at least in my humble opinion):

      • Windows by Zabbix agent
      • Linux by Zabbix agent

      They seem to be really great templates. Lots of work and thoughts in it, but I never switched from the 3.x era templates, because of the module system. Sorry for the rant, but I hate that approach.

      The Linux OS template consists of 8 templates. (https://git.zabbix.com/projects/ZBX/repos/zabbix/browse/templates/os/linux) That's a ridiculous overhead to mange and makes updating and maintaining those templates, when Zabbix teams decides to make improvements or bug fixes, really a pita.

      Therefore I request, in regards to the new and updated public roadmap (https://www.zabbix.com/roadmap), that the two most important Zabbix templates, should each be reworked back into one template, like it once was, and like it should be again.

      Ps.: I'm not a fan of making the three ICMP items part of every template. I like the ICMP module. It a pita to take care of every ICMP item update interval and pre-processing discard otherwise.
