Part 65: GPT4All is compatible with Zabbix 7.0 ChatGPT widget

For those of you who were present in Zabbix Summit 2023 in Riga, Latvia do probably remember how InitMAX demoed their Zabbix 7.0 ChatGPT widget. That was and is extremely cool, but even though the plugin itself is freely available and open source, using it with ChatGPT requires a ChatGPT account and real money.

Part 64: I, for one, welcome our new AI blogger overlords

As I now have GPT4All perfectly suitable for writing fascinating stories about everything, why not to utilize it even more? Please welcome the new spin-off website, What's up, home? Generative AI Edition. A cronjob running on my What's up, home? environment will run itself every morning 7am Finnish time, generate a fresh new story based on active Zabbix alerts, and post it to the new website over Drupal API.

Part 62: Zabbix the AI alert journalist

As I am now entering the dungeons of Generative AI, of course I'm having some fun. Instead of just analyzing a single alert through Zabbix manual actions, how about using the Zabbix API and the official zabbix_utils for querying the active alerts and feeding the list to GPT4All?

Part 61: My Zabbix goes Generative AI

I just integrated my Zabbix with locally running generative AI in five minutes. You could do it, too. Here's how.

Install GPT4All

For my test, I'm using GPT4All, or its Python libraries. Install it with 

pip install gpt4all

Next, I took one of their example scripts and added very primitive command line argument handling. Here's the full Python script.

Part 60: OS upgrade made my Raspberry Pi 4 literally cooler

Ever since I started my What's up, home? project back in the spring of 2022, the Raspberry Pi 4 I bought back then has been running on Raspberry OS 11 -- or, a rebranded Debian 11 with a splash of love to make it perfect for these little credit-card sized computer marvels.

Today I took a brave step and upgraded my Raspberry Pi to Rasberry Pi OS 12, or again, to modified Debian 12. Even though Debian 12 has been out for some time now, Raspberry Pi OS 12 only came out late last year. 

Part 59: I created my first Zabbix 7.0 custom widget

As Zabbix 7.0 will come with the new widget framework, allowing communication between different widgets on dashboards, of course I had to try it out. 

Creating the module

The blog post title is a bit of a clickbait in a sense that this example is just 1:1 from Zabbix Summit 2023 custom widgets workshop session. I made some very, very minor modifications to code, mainly just changed my name and so on to manifest.json files. Since the code itself was obtained from the workshop session, I'm not going to publish it, but this much I will tease:

Part 58: Time to start to use Zabbix 7.0 (at home)

Since I will have some real use for Zabbix 7.0 when it comes out, I figured out that maybe it's time to switch my What's up, home? main instance to run on Zabbix 7.0beta1. Actually, I first upgraded to Zabbix 7.0alpha9 early yesterday, but then 7.0beta1 got released later in the evening before I had time to play around with alpha9. 

Anyway, now my Raspberry Pi 4 is running the latest-and-greatest version of Zabbix. A possible bumpy ride ahead, but I'm ready!

Part 57: Control your lights with Zabbix

Can you control your lights with Zabbix? Of course you can!

As I told during my Zabbix Summit 2023 speech, there will be a blog series about how I control my home with Zabbix. Let's start with how I control my home office lights -- or any light connected to our Cozify -- with it.

First of all, in Cozify I have the office light (Philips Hue) like this.

Part 56: Track product prices with Zabbix

In December, my wife told my how she's annoyed about one Finnish company which tends to change its product prices out of nowhere all the time. To visualize this, of course I added a random product from that company's website to my dear What's up, home? monitoring.

The products in question are not complex to manufacture, and are not dependent on terribly fluctuating things like chip availability, oil prices or similar factors. Anyway, the price randomness is very real - the price varies between 23.90 EUR and 59.90 EUR.
