OK - so which of traffic_in and traffic_out are you going to use to decide if an interface is up or down, and why? Are you just going to say if there there is 0 traffic, the interface must be down?
Weathermap 0.98 is out! & QuickTree 1.0. Superlinks is over there now (and built-in to Cacti 1.x).

Good Day,

I know I'm late, but i have a problem with host status.
SW1 is up and SW2 is down so the icon is correct, but why the LABEL is both up?
Below is my config

NODE node09115
LABEL SW1
LABELOFFSET N
ICON images/layer2switch_{node:this:state}.png
TARGET cactihost:14
POSITION node07617 43r250

NODE node04205
LABEL SW2
LABELOFFSET N
TARGET cactihost:70
ICON images/layer2switch_{node:this:state}.png
POSITION 936 110

I want to know the status of host based on ICON not LABEL.
Thanks,

The label doesn't say up, it's just green, based on the SCALE that is defined. All weathermap does is translate numbers into colours! It doesn't know what is up or down :-)

So, from the manual, you know that 1==down and 3==up for Cacti host status. There is also an example scale to use, there:

Code: Select all

SCALE cactiupdown 0 0.5 192 192 192 
SCALE cactiupdown 0.5 1.5 255 0 0 
SCALE cactiupdown 1.5 2.5 0 0 255 
SCALE cactiupdown 2.5 3.5 0 255 0 
SCALE cactiupdown 4.5 5.5 128 128 128 
and then you just need to add

Code: Select all

USESCALE cactiupdown in
to your nodes.

Thanks Howie, maybe I'll stick with the label being green :D
