I am running Cacti on a Linux host and found the other BES template which uses WMI difficult to install so I created one to use SNMP.
You need to have Windows Server SNMP Service installed and then install the BES snmp files on your BES server. Go to the RIM knowledge base and search for SNMP for instructions for more info.
I put each item on it's own graph as my pending messages are quite high all the time. I also did not like the messages per second values listed at the bottom of each graph so I modified the graphs so they would provide messages per 5 minutes. The actual graph looks the same either way. If you want per second just go to each graph and change the CDEF function from Make Per 5 Minutes to None for each Item. I didn't like seeing 0.01 messages sent, I'd rather see 20 messages sent over the last 5 minutes. Just a personal preference.
These are the SNMP values I am querying:
besSysHealthV1MsgsPending.1 4980 SNMPv2-SMI::enterprises.35184.108.40.206.202.1 = INTEGER: 4467
besSysHealthV1TotalMsgsSent.1 79843 SNMPv2-SMI::enterprises.35220.127.116.11.203.1 = INTEGER: 79898
besSysHealthV1TotalMsgsReceived.1 2330536 SNMPv2-SMI::enterprises.3518.104.22.168.204.1 = INTEGER: 2334790
besSysHealthV1TotalMsgsExpired.1 1511 SNMPv2-SMI::enterprises.3522.214.171.124.205.1 = INTEGER: 1511
besSysHealthV1TotalMsgsFiltered.1 36034 SNMPv2-SMI::enterprises.35126.96.36.199.206.1 = INTEGER: 36581
They are all counters except for MsgsPending.
I am attaching the host template which should have everything needed.
Hope this helps someone as I got a lot of help from these forums.
