Description

In this lecture I install and configure Zabbix Agent to run on a macOS.

The mac is behind a firewall and I configure it to be managed via the Zabbix proxy.

After installing the Zabbix Agent on macOS, you will need to configure it using,

sudo nano /usr/local/etc/zabbix/zabbix_agentd.conf

edit the Server, ServerActive and Hostname parameters, save and restart the agent.

The commands to restart Zabbix Agent on the macOS are,

sudo launchctl unload /Library/LaunchDaemons/com.zabbix.zabbix_agentd.plist

then

sudo launchctl load /Library/LaunchDaemons/com.zabbix.zabbix_agentd.plist

Go back to the Zabbix Server, add the host to be managed by the proxy. Then update the proxy cache.

sudo zabbix_proxy -R config_cache_reload
