Zabbix triggers and web response scenarios

Posted by jpluimers on 2019/01/07

A few notes on Zabbix triggers and web scenarios:

  • Triggers are part of the web scenario as a whole, not the step inside a web scenario
  • A trigger is only displayed in the web scenario graph if it contains only the web response time
  • You do not need triggers for:
    • http response code: if you specify one or more “Status codes” (overview grid) or “Required status codes” (edit screen)” for a step, the web scenario will fail without the need for a trigger
    • http response content: if you specify a “Required” (overview grid) or “Required string” (edit screen) for a step, the web scenario will fail without the need for a trigger
  • If a step of a web scenario fails, the other steps are not executed.
  • Graphs for web scenarios show cumulative times of the steps, but absolute times for the triggers.

For now I’ve set these kinds of triggers on response times:

  • Level Warning: 2 minute of response time > average
  • Level Average: 5 minutes of response time > 2*average
  • Level High: 10 minutes of response time > 4*avarage
  • Level Disaster: 30 minutes of response time > 10*average

These are the colours by default used for the trigger levels: at http://example.org/zabbix/adm.triggerseverities.php
