Zeus ZXTM templates

#1 Post by sauron » Mon Aug 07, 2006 11:39 am

I've created the following templates for graphing the ZXTM load balancer product from Zeus. They represent my first tempate set for Cacti, so they might still be a bit rough around the edges- YMMV.

Attached file contains the exported templates from Cacti, along with the data query XML files and the scripts that fetch the actual data. You'll need to have SNMP enabled on your ZXTM box, the net-snmp tools installed, Perl, and the Perl Bit::Vector module. This is used to recombine the two 32 bit half counters provided by ZXTM for various values into single 64 bit counters.

Any feedback would be welcome.

hey
I installed this
but can not query data from zxtm host
Data Query [ZXTM - Get Available Nodes] Reload Associated Query
This data query returned 0 rows, perhaps there was a problem executing this data query. You can run this data query in debug mode to get more information.

Data Query [ZXTM - Get Virtual Servers] Reload Associated Query
This data query returned 0 rows, perhaps there was a problem executing this data query. You can run this data query in debug mode to get more information.


problem is my snmp running on 161, but you can not enable 161 on zxtm anymore.
so I changed port to 1161

Code: Select all

Can you run the scripts from the command line?


What happens if you try to execute:-

Code: Select all

/usr/bin/perl /home/httpd/htdocs/cacti/scripts/query_zxtm.pl nodes public 192.168.20.33 index
This should return you a list of nodes. Similarly, replacing "nodes" with "vservers" should give you list of virtual servers. The script uses snmptable to return the data - if your SNMP agent listens on something other than udp:161 you'll need to change the lines in the code that call snmptable to use the different port. For 1160, you'd need something like:-

Code: Select all

open(NODELIST, "$snmptable -CHif : -v 1 -c $community ${address}:1161 $nodetableoid | ");


You'd need to change all the lines that call snmptable, but there are only 4 or 5.

Hmm - maybe your ZXTM uses a different MIB?

When I download the mIB from my ZXTM box, and install it under /usr/local/share/snmp/mibs/ I can test the OID like so:-

Code: Select all

# snmptranslate .1.3.6.1.4.1.7146.1.2.4.2
ZXTM-MIB::nodeTable
So, it should be a table. If it isn't, I suggest you have a look at the output of an snmpwalk to see:-

Code: Select all

# snmpwalk -v 1 -c public 10.0.0.250 .1.3.6.1.4.1.7146
You can easily replace the OID values in the script once you've found the base OID, but you need to get the snmptable command to give you sensible output for the node table before the rest will start to work:-

Code: Select all

# snmptable  -v 1 -c public 10.0.0.250 .1.3.6.1.4.1.7146.1.2.4.2
SNMP table: ZXTM-MIB::nodeTable

If that works, then you should be able tp get the script to produce sensible output, and then you'll start to be able to get data into Cacti.

Installing the MIB will allow the snmp utilities to use nice symbolic names for things, rather than just OIDs. If your device has a different MIB to mine it should be obvious if you try what I suggested in my previous post. It's not going to actually fix stuff for you, though.

Hello,

Does anyone has a solution for this problem. I'm running Zeus 4.1 and we have the same problem.

I've tried what was suggested but I can't figure out how to find the correct OID

Code: Select all

...
SNMPv2-SMI::enterprises.7146.1.2.4.1.0 = INTEGER: 3
SNMPv2-SMI::enterprises.7146.1.2.4.2.1.1.195.154.98.98.80 = IpAddress: 195.154.98.98
SNMPv2-SMI::enterprises.7146.1.2.4.2.1.1.195.154.98.99.80 = IpAddress: 195.154.98.99
SNMPv2-SMI::enterprises.7146.1.2.4.2.1.1.195.154.98.100.80 = IpAddress: 195.154.98.100
SNMPv2-SMI::enterprises.7146.1.2.4.2.1.2.195.154.98.98.80 = INTEGER: 80
SNMPv2-SMI::enterprises.7146.1.2.4.2.1.2.195.154.98.99.80 = INTEGER: 80
SNMPv2-SMI::enterprises.7146.1.2.4.2.1.2.195.154.98.100.80 = INTEGER: 80
SNMPv2-SMI::enterprises.7146.1.2.4.2.1.3.195.154.98.98.80 = STRING: "195.154.98.98"
SNMPv2-SMI::enterprises.7146.1.2.4.2.1.3.195.154.98.99.80 = STRING: "195.154.98.99"
SNMPv2-SMI::enterprises.7146.1.2.4.2.1.3.195.154.98.100.80 = STRING: "admin-lp.lpn.fr"
....
table doesn't seem to exist

Code: Select all

snmptable  -m ALL -v 1 -c zeus <private>:1161 1.3.6.1.4.1.7146.1.2.4
Was that a table? ZXTM-MIB::nodes
Any suggestion ?

Thanks.

FYI, another potential fix

#9 Post by elentar » Thu Jan 15, 2009 5:50 pm

The net-snmp tools don't load all available MIBs by default. After adding the mib (ZXTM-MIB.txt or whatever) to your /usr/share/snmp/mibs folder (location may differ), you'll need to do one of the following:

export MIBS=+ZXTM-MIB
(load it for this session only)

or

echo "mibs +ZXTM-MIB" >> $HOME/.snmp/snmp.conf
(load it every time for you)

or

echo "mibs +ZXTM-MIB" >> /etc/snmp/snmp.conf
(load it every time for everyone)

I know this post is now quite old but is there any chance you could let me know what version of cacti was used to export the xml templates?

When importing into 0.8.6j nothing happens and no errors are displayed either. I cannot find the vservers and nodes templates in my list.

Any idea?

Running the perl scripts at the command line work fine though (once the paths to snmpget and snmptable have been updated in the scripts).

I had imported the wrong xml files! d'oh...
I'm now having issues with the data sources 'Index Type' 'Index Value' and 'output Type ID' !!

It's not very obvious hehe

ZXTM Template Problem

I have installed ZXTM template over cacte, the query works on command line. The script works on command line. But it does not show any output on the web interface. Any one can please guide me in the right direction if I am missing something here

If I run the script as it is displayed on cacti web interface using the cacti user it works fine.

I had exactly the same issue. It took me ages to firgure out why it worked at the CLI and not using the verbose query link... I solved it by changing the ownership of the perl script to be 'apache:root' (or whatever user your web server runs as).

Once you have done that, re-run a verbose query and you should start seeing the actual vserver and node names in your query results.

Hope that helps.

Hello,

See the topic remains open. I would, if possible, who was returning ... I had have reported problems similar to the last two participants. I see that there is not an official template for the balancer Zeus.

grateful
