I want to monitor my mysql server with zabbix.

So i've created a mysql user called zabbix. The user got a secret password.

Now is my question where i can update the password in the zabbix config? I read some pages in the internet and found something like this: mysql.status[zabbix,super-secret-password,Slow_queries]

Where should I insert this?

it's either in zabbix_agentd.conf.d or included in zabbix_agentd.conf for my installation, zabbix configuration file is at /usr/local/zabbix/etc/

# find -name 'zabbix_agentd.conf' will show me this files: './usr/share/zabbix-agent/zabbix_agentd.conf' and './etc/zabbix/zabbix_agentd.conf' But in both there are only the 'GENERAL PARAMETERS' without mysql config – David Nov 28 '13 at 6:59
