    Description

      We know about possibilities of connecting Zabbix to grafana, but all hard-work has already been done - data is already in the db)

      In graph widget you can choose specific item with a wildcard inside, like UPS * temperature to get "UPS DC4:Rack11 temperature" and "UPS DC7:Rack13 temperature" on one graph - which is more than cool

      We have aggregate, selects by groups and wildcard support - but we cannot table display separate items with different item names!
      Only if you have 100%  identical item names.

      Consider following:
      template item key: vfs.file.cksum[\{$FILE}]
      template item name: Checksum [\{$FILE}]
      {$FILE} on host1 = test.log
      {$FILE} on host2 = syslog.log

      When they are created on 2 hosts you get :

      host1 Checksum test.log vfs.file.cksum[test.log]
      host2 Checksum syslog.log vfs.file.cksum[syslog.log]

       

      As they have different item names - the data overview will be

                          host1 host2
      Checksum test.log     X    _
      Checksum syslog.log   _    X

       

      If you will change template item name to => Checksum some-file

                              host1     host2
      Checksum some-file        X         X

       

      Only items with identical name will display good, which is sad
      Situation get worse when you have 10+ hosts - this makes a huge staircase

      Check this:

      host1 HAproxy status 1
      host2 HAproxy status 1
      ___   HAproxy status 1
      host3 HAproxy status 1
      ___   HAproxy status 1
      ___   HAproxy status 1
      host4 HAproxy status 1

       

       

      This is latest data display. Why not use it in Data overview + some columns sorts/filters in addition?

      • Sorting
      • Filtering
      • wildcard/aggregate selects in filters

      Shortly:
      1. Make "Latest data" widget for dashboards (it is easier than adding support for wildcards to Data overview )
      2. Data overview page (and widget) needs improvement in table display part
      3. Similar pages/widgets that display tables can also be improved by reusing that code
