PresideCMS Extension: Zabbix Reporting APIs For PresideCMS

v1.2.14 Preside Extensions

PresideCMS Extension: Zabbix Statistics Reporter

This is an extension for PresideCMS that provides configuration and an API for reporting to Zabbix.

The extension relies on Zabbix Agent being installed on the server running the preside application.


The extension provides a system configuration screen that allows you to configure:

  • Sender executable: Path to the zabbix_sender, e.g. /usr/bin/zabbix_sender
  • Remote server: Hostname or IP address of remote Zabbix server that will receive data
  • Remote port: Port of the remote Zabbix server that will receive data (default is 10051)
  • Zabbix Hostname: The hostname of the host, as configured in Zabbix, that all data will be recorded against


Direct sending of data

The extension provides a single API method through the ZabbixSender service, send( data, keyPrefix="presidecms" ). Example usage:

component {
    property name="zabbixSender" inject="zabbixSender";
    property name="syncService"  inject="syncService";

    function sendSyncStatsToZabbix() {
        zabbixSender.send( data={
              syncfailures = syncService.getFailureCount()
            , syncqueued   = syncService.getQueueCount()
            , synctotal    = syncService.getTotalProcessedCount()
        } );

All sent data keys are prefixed by default with "presidecms". In the example above, the following variables would be sent to Zabbix: presidecms[syncfailures], presidecms[syncqueued], presidecms[synctotal].

Provided scheduled task

A scheduled task (requires the Taskmanager preside extension) is supplied that announces a onCollectSystemStats interception point in order to gather statistics from the application. To provide statistics in this way, listen for the interception point with an interceptor, e.g.

component {

    property name="taskManagerService" inject="delayedInjector:taskmanagerService";

    public void function configure() output=false {

// listeners
    public void function onCollectSystemStats( event, interceptData ) {
        interceptData[ "taskmanager_failure_count" ] = taskManagerService.getFailureCount();
        // etc.



The extension defines a 'zabbixSender' logbox logger that, by default, logs to (yourapp)/logs/zabbix-sender.log. Warnings, errors and sending info will be recorded here.


Install the extension to your application via either of the methods detailed below (Git submodule / CommandBox) and then enable the extension by opening up the Preside developer console and entering:

extension enable preside-ext-zabbix
reload all

Git Submodule method

From the root of your application, type the following command:

git submodule add application/extensions/preside-ext-zabbix

CommandBox (box.json) method

From the root of your application, type the following command:

box install pixl8/preside-ext-zabbix#v1.1.0
