Boost-2.0 is sweet. Running this version on all production Cactis. Gaps are gone now. Nice!

The default permissions in the tar.gz are 700 to some random user-id. Make sure you chown/chmod so that cacti and the webserver can read the boost folder, and *then* it will appear in the plugin install list.
Weathermap 0.98 is out! & QuickTree 1.0. Superlinks is over there now (and built-in to Cacti 1.x).
Some Other Cacti tweaks, including strip-graphs, icons and snmp/netflow stuff.
(Let me know if you have UK DevOps or Network Ops opportunities, too!)

I'm just in the process of building a shiny new Cacti server (15K SAS, lots of RAM etc), and I thought I'd try Boost on it, starting with the 'basic' stuff - image caching.

I've enabled image caching, set the path, chmod 777 that path, and I don't get any images created in it, nor any error messages in the cacti log.

Looking at setup.php, I can't see how I would get neither.

This worked for me with Boost 1.x - has something changed in the image caching code? I don't have any update caching running, for example...

Great to see a new version of boost, TheWitness :]
