I'm interested in converting my cacti installation from mysql to postgresql. I'm checking out the cacti-0.8.7-psql branch from subversion to see if it will work. I'm willing to resolve issues and submit patches. My questions are:
  1. What revision was this initially branched from? The CHANGELOG seems to match /cacti/tags/0.8.7/. Does this mean 0.8.7a-0.8.7c need to merged into it to bring it to the latest stable?
  2. What was the original psql patch that was applied to it?


Thank you for your time.

We aren't currently developing in the 0.8.7 branch any longer. 0.8.7 has been put on patch status only so that development can focus on 0.8.8.

I would be interested in testing any, version of cacti that has pgsql support
as we need it. We use pgsql almost exclusively,and we prefer not to have a separate server just for cacti to run mysql.

thank you in advance for supporting pgsql

I have heard this before.

We want to have multiple database support, but until Spine can and does support it as well, we will not release it.

I'm no stranger to C so I have no problem patching Spine as well.

I noticed that the user iamsure recently posted interest in working on postgresql compatibility as well. It would be nice if we could coordinate our efforts. I'll send a PM.

Before I jump in, I wanted to get a handle on the ancestory of the fork so patches could be merged onto other branches. What's the best way to get ahold of TheWitness (the original committer)?

In version 0.8.7h, support for PSQL will be made more difficult through the use of "ON DUPLIDATE KEY UPDATE" syntax, which if adopted by PSQL, would make me 'very' happy. To date, even in v9.x they have not delivered.
