Re: Cacti variables: |variable_name| list?

There are a lot of samples in the documentation here: http://docs.cacti.net/manual:088:6_reference.variables#variables You can also do |input_abc| to re-use information from a new data input method. I did a Google search for 'cacti variables' and it was at the top. Maybe my results are skewed becaus...

Re: Data Queries / Script Data / not being polled

I was about to write a me-too for this post, and then I followed suggestions of re-reading the manual. :) My first missing step was not checking the box on the data template for Index Type, Index Value, and Output Type ID.

Indeed, that modification to functions.php seems to have done the trick. Thank you for that.

Now, if I have everything set to 1 minute,...
