Yesterday my zabbix server ver 2.2.21 crash twice. I attach log files.


Zabbix server is working on the following machine:

 CPU: Intel(R) Xeon(R) CPU X5660 @ 2.80GHz
 CPU: Intel(R) Xeon(R) CPU X5660 @ 2.80GHz
 CPU: Intel(R) Xeon(R) CPU X5660 @ 2.80GHz
 CPU: Intel(R) Xeon(R) CPU X5660 @ 2.80GHz
 HDD: 682G
 RAM: 9.65162 G

On the same machine I have all components of zabbix (front-end, server, db). To be sure that zabbix server is always running, I added the following script to crontab



 echo $(date +%d/%m/%Y-%H:%M)


 if (( $(ps -ef | grep -v grep | grep $service | wc -l) > 0 ))
 echo "$service is running!!!"
 echo " "
 echo "Zabbix Server is not running on $HOSTNAME!!!" > /tmp/mail_zabbix_server
 mail -s "Zabbix server is down on !!!" some_email@zxy.com < /tmp/mail_zabbix_server
 /etc/init.d/zabbix-server start
 rm -rf /tmp/mail_zabbix_server

Anybody have some idea why my zabbix crash?

  • What Linux distro you use? Did you install Zabbix from the OS repositories or did you compile it yourself? – Janne Pikkarainen Jun 30 '14 at 10:19
  • CENTOS 6.4x64 & zabbix are install from repo – Mick Jun 30 '14 at 11:02
  • OK, truly shouldn't crash unless you have some very exotic Zabbix 3rd party plugins installed. Is the server otherwise stable? A some kind of hardware fault is what I suspect. – Janne Pikkarainen Jun 30 '14 at 11:44
  • Can you provide the actual logs, or links to them, rather than links to a very questionable web site? Try pastebin.com – Michael Hampton Jun 30 '14 at 14:01

This is probably bug https://support.zabbix.com/browse/ZBX-7521 .

1) upgrade Zabbix 2) increase ValueCacheSize parameter in the server configuration file as the logfile suggests
