Re: syslog plugin - no INFO file

I must say so far it's been a really painful exercise trying to get syslog into Cacti... surely it shouldn't be this hard. I've Googled a lot about setting up Syslog and I've got it logging to a .log file but I haven't a clue how to connect that to the Cacti Webinterface…. Has anyone created an "idi...

Re: syslog plugin - no INFO file

Hi,

I’ve configured my Cisco switch to forward the logs to my Cacti server.

My Cacti server doesn’t seem to be listening on port 514

Has anyone else configured the syslog plugin and made the necessary configuration adjustments.

Regards,

Dave.

Re: syslog plugin - no INFO file

That seems to be getting me further than before - I've got the plugin installed....

How do I then add a Cisco switch to push it logs to the syslog plugin to my Cacti server....

Re: [HOWTO] Install and configure the Net-SNMP agent for Win

Apologies for being not quite so switched on with this but how do I go about copying the template...

I've looked in the interface and it's not immediately obvious.

Re: Netflow plugin

Hi,

I'm quite a newbie to Cacti so please excuse me...

Is there an "idiots guide" to setting this netflow type information up within the Cacti server.

I know you can get netflow data in systems like Solarwinds but that is HUGELY expensive!

Regards,

Dave.

Re: Cacti monitoring windows disk space

Thanks for the reply.

Is there a preferred 3rd party SNMP agent to use with Cacti or are they all pretty much the same.
