monitoring Jitsi with Zabbix

If you want to monitor your Jitsi Server (number of logged on user, running sessions, etc.) with Zabbix you

  • first have to enable Colibri Stats on your Jitsi server
  • secondly import a monitoring Template to your zabbix server

Enable stats on Jitsi Server

edit /etc/jitsi/videobridge/ and add/alter the lines:


then add in /etc/jitsi/videobridge/config :


And restart with

sudo service jitsi-videobridge2 restart

Then check if port 8080 is open with:

nmap localhost

check if data gets delivered via json-file:

curl -v

Trying to open the page with your browser might not work as the statistics are not available through https but your http-header forces a ssl-redirect (depending on you webserver-config).

Import zabbix template

Make sure you clone/download the files and not just copy them as my zabbix server complained about the xml-syntax when importing the “saved-as”-file.
