I would like to get up/down working for the hosts in my maps, but there isn't much in the manual yet for this. Has anyone got this working yet?
I ask here because I do not want to bother Howie since he is probably busy with more important things than answering my silly questions
I saw in the image dir that there are different symbols for up/down/recovering. Does that mean it would be possible to have different icons for host status, and still use different colors for the label (cpu load)?
edit: I found the answer to one of my questions in the manual. Seems you can use different icons for different values using the SET command. I also read about using up/down status, but I do not seem to understand how to use it....
The cactihost: datasource plugin sets a variable called 'state' for the node, which has the name of the state in it. It also returns a number as the actual "bandwidth" value, which is the cacti-internal state number.
So, for Cacti device 33 (the number in the URL on the host.php page)
LABEL my host name
Then create a set of images call nodestatus_up.png, nodestatus_down.png, nodestatus_disabled.png and nodestatus_recovering.png in your images directory.
That should do it. Let me know if it doesn't - this bit is not very well used so far. You're a pioneer
