The idea of this plugin is born in the middel of the year 2011. The first version are not with the features that install automatic etc.
The real reason to start are to many devices and not enough time to polling.
With the feature that you can work virtual with cacti the eventualities are nearly endless. In this year i would create an plugin that you can use the multipollerserver on your own system. The reason that the plugin is only for unix is that the filehandel over NFS in unix is very fast and uncomplicated. If in the future are give an version for windows is not sure.
Now you can create one masterserver, he handel all the installed plugins and you can make all configurations of the system.
In my installation the database is on other server and all files are on an storage and mounted with NFS on the pollerserver.
The work of the pollerserver are easy ... polle the allotted device.
. The real limit of pollerserver is only the hardware. My installation is on an range of vmware servers, so i can look at the feeling of the servers an i can create an new pollerser by copy an working server and to customize it.
So now enough spoken my me. Test the plugin an tell me your impression or wishes.Features:
- One master take the main (plugin,configuration) work.
- A couple of pollerserver share the polling process.
- The Update is update ready.
- No existing data are lost on update.
- No existing data are lost on disable the plugin.
- One ore more variant configuration of sever or infrastructure are possible.
- VMWare installations are possible.
- Fix any Bugs
- include an backup poller configuration on every pollerserver.
- more better features i think that update the plugin
- Cluster of mysqlserver.
- Make the plugin ready for work on split locations.
Option 3 (professional installation)
