Processor load, for a number of hosts on the same graph How to avoid getting crazy from all the slow clicking in the Zabbix UI by using its API I will indicate how it could be done with plain HTTP POST andContinue reading “Escaping the Zabbix UI pain: How to create a combined graph for a number of hosts using the Zabbix API”
