Zabbix MySQL (MariaDB) Monitoring

This is another one of those things that is pretty straightforward, but requires culminating information from a different sources in order to get things up and running.  The goal here is to get Zabbix to monitor our MariaDB (MariaDB is a drop in replacement for MySQL, I’ll refer to either as MariaDB here) server’s status.  There’s a built in template, but a few other files and settings need setup before you can get the juicy data flowing.

Resizing LVM Partitions on CentOS

One of the things I’ve done for my employer is resize partitions on a few CentOS machines that already had customer data on them.  The default CentOS setup didn’t work exactly for our needs, so resizing the /root and /home partitions were our chosen course of action.  Overall the process is pretty simple, but I’m writing it down here since it takes the concatenation of a two different processes to get things done.
