Hi

I have made my own CPU and Memory templates for Cisco Nexus. These have been tested on:-
cisco Nexus3064T
cisco Nexus5548

There should be 3 data templates and 1 graph template for CPU.
There should be 2 data templates and 1 graph template for Memory.

I just exported the data and graph templates from Cacti and ticked to include dependancies. I just used 5 minute polling for these templates.
See signature for the Cacti version I used to export. There is a chance they may not import successfully for you based on your Cacti version.

These are the OIDS I used.
5 second CPU = 1.3.6.1.4.1.9.9.109.1.1.1.1.6.1 = Gauge32:
1 minute CPU = 1.3.6.1.4.1.9.9.109.1.1.1.1.7.1 = Gauge32:
5 minute CPU = 1.3.6.1.4.1.9.9.109.1.1.1.1.8.1 = Gauge32:
Memory used = 1.3.6.1.4.1.9.9.109.1.1.1.1.12.1 = Gauge32:
Memory free = 1.3.6.1.4.1.9.9.109.1.1.1.1.13.1 = Gauge32:

Cheers
Jay

PERFECT! Working flawless!

The only thing I would change, is to set the Graph Template to "Auto Scale" rather than defining the MAX VALUE to 100. This allows you to not only see the 5 second/1 minute/5 minute values more clearly, but also allows you to get a quicker sense at a glance. On average most Cisco devices will be operating within standard ranges, so these values tend to be fairly flat. Having them auto-scale will just give much better visuals.

Have you considered getting these added to the templates section? Seeing as how Nexus is quite different with NX-OS compared to IOS from a MIB/OID perspective, these would be a tremendous help for users that don't know to search forums for templates like this.

Hi
Thanks for your feedback. I have changed to auto scale and I see what you mean it looks much better now.
I have also managed to create a wiki page on the cacti template page as requested.

http://docs.cacti.net/usertemplate:host:cisco_nexus

Thanks Jay
