There is no service you can monitor by port however you could utilise a script to monitor your needs (job state for example). I haven't seen any custom scripts yet for Zabbix or Nagios but there is a custom mail report which can get you started. For more information check this thread.

Hi Petr,

Not sure if I understand what exactly do you want to monitor, but I guess you could make Zabbix to watch after /var/tmp/veeam/socket/veeam.sock socket state? If that does not meet your requirements then please kindly elaborate.

Thanks

Hi all.

I've made simple zabbix template and script to monitor Veeam Agent for Linux job conditions. It is for free version of Veeam Agent so it is suitable to monitor one job only.

0. It is assumed that Zabbix Agent and Veeam Agent are already installed and configured.
1. Copy zabbix.sh script to the host.

Code: Select all

#!/bin/bash
# add user parameter to zabbix_agentd.conf
echo "UserParameter=Veeam.Result,veeamconfig session list | tail -n 2 | head -n -1 | awk '{print \$(NF-4)}'" >> /etc/zabbix/zabbix_agentd.conf
# add user zabbix to group veeam (it enables it to run veeamconfig)
usermod -G veeam zabbix
# restart zabbix agent service to enable new config
service zabbix-agent restart
2. Make executable and run zabbix.sh:

Code: Select all

sudo chmod +x zabbix.sh
sudo ./zabbix.sh
3. Download and import template zbx_VeeamAgentLinux.xml to zabbix

4. Apply the template to the host.

You can freely copy, use, distribute and modify the template for your needs.
