Zabbix server is not running

After the installation of zabbix appliance, I made the necessary adjustments and brought the system to work. After recording the systems I wanted to monitor in Zabbix, I encountered a Zabbix server is not running error.

First of all, I observed that it stopped when I checked to see if the service was working.

service zabbix-server status

Then when I wanted to start the service, it didn’t start.

service zabbix-server start

As a result of my research from the logs, I have concluded that the error was fixed by editing Zabbix CacheSize.

tail /var/log/zabbix/zabbix_server.log

Zabbix CacheSize to edit. The /etc/zabbix/zabbix_server.conf file opens with the editor. It is added to the bottom row of the following field as CacheSize=512M. It’s nepotized.

Option: CacheSize
# Size of configuration cache, in bytes.
# Shared memory size for storing host, item and trigger data.
# Mandatory: no
# Range: 128K-64G
# Default:
# CacheSize=8M

After this adjustment, the service started successfully.
