Re: Script server: poller over ran its polling intervale

I guess the point is that it has to be looked at together with Data-Queries.md doc (which does not even mention Script server).

Well if I find some time I'll see if that can be streamlined. :)

Re: Script server: poller over ran its polling intervale

I see. Ehm, what is the order of things how script server queries are called anyway? I tried to find out empirically, and it seems to need 'index', 'query', 'get', ... Is that documented somewhere? It seems to 'get' each single value, why can't it just walk a subtree? Also, can you have global varia...

Script server: poller over ran its polling intervale

Hi, Ever since implementing a script server query (indexed) script (using SNMP) to retrieve the data from https://forums.cacti.net/viewtopic.php?f=21&t=59681 I am getting the following: 2019/03/20 08:30:02 - CMDPHP WARNING: cmd.php poller over ran its polling intervale and therefore ending 2019/03/2...

Brocade/Broadcom FC Switch SFP Stats (HW address inside OID)

Hey, I have found a peculiar MIB on these switches Normal stuff (like transmitted frames) looks, well, normal: SNMPv2-SMI::enterprises.1588.2.1.1.1.6.2.1.13.1 = Counter32: 3835485735 SNMPv2-SMI::enterprises.1588.2.1.1.1.6.2.1.13.2 = Counter32: 1492958274 SNMPv2-SMI::enterprises.1588.2.1.1.1.6.2.1.13...

GPRINT:LAST ?

Hey, Can someone explain what graph item type GPRINT:LAST, GPRINT:MAX etc. are? So you have to choose between GPRINT, GPRINT:LAST or :MAX or :MIN and in the CF again you have to choose AVG, MAX, MIN, or LAST. Well, now I am confused. Is there a place (in the documentation maybe ;-) where this is exp...

Unnecessary recaching due to bad system uptime detection

Hi, Looking at the cacti log we noticed lots of recaching taking place because of uptime on Linux hosts. In fact, DISMAN-EVENT-MIB::sysUpTimeInstance is reset to 0 when the SNMP daemon is restarted/reloaded (which it is after logrotation for example). A more sensible approach to detecting system reb...

Re: Host down, but manual polling on CLI is ok

This seems to have been an issue because of duplicated engine IDs on the remote hosts (cloned VMs). How to make sure SNMPv3 Engine ID is not duplicated: [*] Stop snmpd: service snmpd stop [*] Delete from snmpd config (location depends on distribution) engineBoots 2 oldEngineID ..... [*] Then: servic...

Re: Host down, but manual polling on CLI is ok

This is sick... The device is shown as down (with the SNMP errors shown in my previous post). However on the actual device page, everything seems to work normally: SNMP Information System:Linux hostname 3.12.51-52.39-default #1 SMP Fri Jan 15 20:03:12 UTC 2016 (16f5bac) x86_64 Uptime: 9467481 (1 day...

Re: Host down, but manual polling on CLI is ok

Oh and running the exact same snmp3_get() command as found in lib/snmp.php from the CLI is ok too.

Code: Select all

<?php
snmp_set_quick_print(0);

$r = snmp3_get("x:161", "ro", "authPriv", "MD5", "x", "DES", "x", ".1.3.6.1.2.1.1.3.0", 500000, 1);

print_r($r);

Code: Select all

I don't know if v2 works. Unfortunately I can't just go there and change those systems.

Re: Can Cacti replace Nagios ?

I believe a plain "yes" is a little bit too much. If the question is: "Can I get a mail from Cacti when something goes down or comes back up?" then the answer probably is yes. When you ask "Can Cacti replace Nagios?" then the answer is no. Nagios is not a monitoring tool per se. Nagios is in fact a ...

Re: ESXi 5.1.0 Monitoring

AFAIK you can't do much with SNMP on ESXi.

Usually you perform monitoring via CIM on ESXi, or by the means of vCenter.

I don't know the details but for our Nagios setup I'll have to do the works in the near future.
