I have a site called http://www.cactiexchange.com. There are some tools to help with scripting. Also, I will soon be adding some basic info about running and creating external scripts.

None taken.

The software is not hosted. You install it on your server and you maintain it. You have full control over the content. It lives on your server.

Yes. $$$ always helps. Free is good too. That's what this software would cost. Jive Software is willing to give a free license to make this happen . Not trying to be a pest about it and I know there are other things to consider. I just want this product to succeed and I think the support aspect is c...

I actually have the software up and running on another site now. http://www.getconfigs.com If anyone is interested to see how the software I am recommending works. On another note, the company, jivesoftware, has increased their prices since I posted this. Now the software would cost, for a site like...

Just a quick thought: What about using XML-RPC or SOAP for communications and possible RRD file Sync. I would think this could become a universal interface to all pieces of the "new" Cacti. It would allow for more modularity and you could seem to eliminate many of the sync issues (such as syncing RR...

You won't be able to get SNMP data for SQL. You will need to use WMI. Microsoft removed the SNMP counters from Exchange 2000 and up and SQL 2005 and up. I know that these don't work. They may have removed them sooner for previous versions. I don't know exactly what versions, but they did remove the ...

What do you get if you run the script from the command line? If it can't run, check your permissions. Make sure your script has execute permissions.

New Cacti Support System

I want to make a recommendation. I personally feel that with the release of the new Cacti 8.7 and more and more plugins and templates being created, things are starting to get a little unruly as far as organization goes (on the forums). It is already hard to search and find stuff on the forums (I ha...

Are you putting a hard return "<HR>" after the first Graph Template Item? This would be the one where you pick the color. If not, maybe look into the GPRINT Type. You may need to create a new one that doesn't require so many places before the decimal point. I think you can also change the font size(...

Google Index of the Forums

I have been using this for a while to search the forums. I find the search feature of the forums limited, so I looked around and found out how to do it with Google. I noticed Google was indexing the forums, so I tried this URL and it works great. The other day I noticed that a link has been put on t...

Check under your Graph Template Item. You should see a CDEF there (at least there is one in the CactiEZ installation) to convert bits to bytes. If you don't have it, make a request here and either I or someone will post the CDEF.

It depends on the data you are receiving from the host. Check how your data is sent, bits or byte or packets or whatever. You should be able to find it from the MIB. If it is coming in as bits, you may want to do a CDEF to convert it to bytes before you graph it. First check how your data is coming ...

Well, when I run the update command from the command prompt, it doesn't seem to update the dile. If I immediately do a dump or a fetch, I don't see it there. The redirct of the STDOUT and STDERR showed that Cacit seemed to be putting everything together correctly and then running the command. No err...
