I have got some basic questions to be clarified. Please don't mind if it sounds trivial to you.
I have a cacti setup with boost enabled on it. Where in one issue of cacti not graphing, I see the rrd files created are having user and group as "root" instead of cacti. When I manually changed the user and group to cacti, it started graphing. However, this issue happened everytime the new RRD is created until I made the below changes.
Modified the group ownership of Boost.
chown root:cacti boost_server.php
chown root:cacti boost_rrdupdate.php
What I thought initially is, cacti creates a rrd file where boost is used to update them on demand. But is it other-way ?
Could someone tell me the basics of how rrd is created and the role of a boost in it?
Thanks in advance.
