Re: RRD writting performance improvement

As I/O is paramount in Cacti (in my expierence) we just put all RRDs into RAM and use
a copy job-script to periodically store the RRDs onto harddisk (something like this: https://www.a-netz.de/blog/2013/02/pers ... -ramdisks/).

Re: Gradient Graphs for Cacti

sooo pretty :)

cheers, Phalek!


edit:
Now, if only I could remove the " ' " apostrophes from all my graphs, that´d be even better!

Individual Device/Host Polling Time (via logfile)

After being annoyed long enough that I couldn´t find a template which will graph my devices for how long a polling-request takes, I created some solution of my own. It´s a very basic log parser which requires your cacti setup to be set to MEDIUM logging (only then "Total Time" is shown!). This is ho...

McAfee WebGateway 7.5 Graphs

Hi, these graphs can come in handy when running one or more MWGs. Reqs: use SNMPv2, all MWG mibs are 64bit. DS-Design: I use one single RRD and manually pointed the graphs to that source for I/O optimization. Feel free to split the DS as you see fit or create mutliple (about 16MB each) if you don´t ...

Re: Process Performance Counters

Hi all, thanks, Helmut, for the nice graphs. You just missed exporting your "data query" template, hence some questions came up about how to use them. If you have a look at how the "old" SNMP process queries are setup you can easily recreate your own data query with Helmuts templates. Adding SNMP-qu...

Re: New skin

Can I just say that I am very excited to see that Cacti is still being worked on? All fancy UIs are a big plus for sure, but I´m just happy that one of the best monitoring perfomers out there is alive and kicking :).

Elasticsearch Monitoring via ruby/JSON API

Hi, if you are using an elasticsearch cluster these graphs might come in handy. I copied most of this template and adjusted it slightly: http://www.keepthingssimple.net/2013/12/elasticsearch-cacti-template/ Adjustments were made to use only ONE larger RRD-file instead of mutliple smaller (decreases ...

Hitachi HUS/AMS SAN Storage Monitoring

Hi there, based on some existing templates and scripts for monitoring Hitachi SAN devices I managed to get it working for my needs and maybe some other people can benefit as well. This is working for a Hitachi HUS130 using their SNM2CLI Linux binaries which collects perfomance data and a perl script...

Re: Thold: how to alert on No Data? (not zero!)

Since I´ve searched quite some time for this exact question, this is how I made it work for me. Using Thold RPNs: |ds:proc_mem|,1,+ . Ofc you have to adjust your ds for whatever you want to query but basically i just add +1 to the nan and have a low threshold detection for 1.1. Now whenever a proces...

Re: Large Cacti Setups..

Hi Hol, thanks for your input and tips! I´m always interested to see how other people set up large scale monitoring with cacti. I did check out multiserver but it doesn´t really work across WAN-links when you have 2 seperate RRD-Caches. Our setup has roughly 1.2k hosts and about 20k DSs but so far I...
