Ignoring Windows Services in Zabbix Windows Template Low-Level Service Discovery

Posted on 27/12/2017 · Posted in Microsoft, Zabbix

The new Zabbix Windows templates include a Low-Level Discovery for Windows Services. The service.discovery LLD creates items based on discovered Windows Services and accompanies triggers to services with Automatic startup.

To ignore a set of services, from all Windows clients, you need to modify  the discovery regex. To modify the default regex, open Administration > General > Regular Expressions. Modify the Windows Service names for discovery reged that has a return value of false. Add any services to this in valid regex format to exclude them for the LLD discovery.
