Advanced Ping Script (ss_fping.php ms timeout issue.)

I am using the Advanced Ping script which calls ss_fping.php, my issue is I am monitoring hosts which are over slow links, resulting in 100% loss failures when they are under heavy load. I want to use this script as more of a straight link up/down on loss, and so I want to give it a higher ms timeou...

While this sounds odd, the more complex filesystem capacity/usage graphs are working fine for me. But the basic cpu,mem,and cifs/nfs graphs are not, those 3 all just show blank graphs with "-1.#J" for all the values. I checked the snmp polling cache for them and the oids they show are correct, and w...

Yah, that is not going to work, because it's not part of the snmp table, it's out of the range. shame, I had thought since I could get the xml to query that value, that it would be something I could reference inside cacti :( any idea why |host_description| doesn't translate inside of a text field f...

I was not very clear before. My fault, please do the following: 1. Set your log output to log to the logfile, and set the mode to DEBUG. 2. manually run one poll cycle. 3. examine the debug output in the cacti.log file. 4. Post the lines which contain references to the problem host. Also A. please p...

Please post your debug log output for one of the affected hosts

Before

Changed to

This is the only change needed to get it working with 0.8.7a?

It's all about cost/value.
In theory, but even that much hardware can fail when poorly written scripts are used.

To be honest it will totally depend on what Virtual infrastructure you have. I only know from a VMware point of view but I have Cacti running on my laptop within VMware Workstation 6 and with 1 CPU, 512Mb, IDE Driver, I can easily monitor 10-15 devices. Cacti is mostly I/O and memory bound. I run C...

Do you have any devices that are flagged as down? If so, maybe disable them. I've got several devices on the other side of a firewall that I can (at least right now) only monitor via TCP and one day I noticed that if one of those systems was down cactid gathered data for everything that was up but ...

In thinking the problem was I simply have too many datasources being polled for a 300 second window, I disabled most of the larger devices, and got the following: Jan 11 18:54:56 vsrvr-nms-01-cacti Cacti[9890]: SYSTEM: STATS: Time:294.3332 Method:spine Processes:6 Threads:15 Hosts:65 HostsPerProcess...
