Re: GPS Maps for Cacti

#271 Post by spiffydudex » Tue Apr 02, 2013 12:33 am

It has been a busy year with my IT consulting business going full swing for through its first year. I have had little to no time and even less motivation to work on this project. So I have set some limits for myself in order to get a decent working API v3 GPSMaps version out in the wild before the May deadline.

Things completed:
Map Displays using Google API v3
Hosts are Displayed on Map.
Hosts display information about their status when clicked.
Hosts display notes about the device when hovered.
Able to isolate hosts by subnet.

Things to-do:
Display coverage overlay based on host grouping. (This is all completely new code)
Remove visible references to API v2.
Fix Map Templates configuration page.
Remove dead/unused code.
Comment each function for future developers.

It is a short list. But I feel once this final release is made I will make preparations for the Cacti group to maintain the code from that release onward. It has been close to 5 years since GPS Maps set sail. My determination and motivation are lacking to keep it afloat and current. I personally have not used the software for close to 4 years now and I need to set it free into the wild for future prospectors to find and modify.

Good to hear you are at least working towards someone taking it over though. I haven't had a chance to look at the issues mine was having since I last talked to you.

Hello everybody,

The support of the API Google Maps v2 is 19/11/2013.
Does anyone know if the support of the api v3 is provided in a future version ?

My updates on GPS Maps have effectively ceased.

Due to an increase in my IT Business, a massive hard drive failure, and a lack of use for Cacti, I no longer have a reason to continue development. The development of my plugin was housed on a old linux box with a RAID 10, no offsite backup was implemented. Two of the drives decided to die on the same day! Unfortunate.

Maxime from Wixiweb, a French company that specialize in web development and implementation had updated the GPSMap for one of his customers in order to implement Google Maps API v3. They both wanted to release the code to the community. I was contacted by Maxime on January 31st of 2014 about releasing updated code. After explaining my situation, he seemed very open to the idea of creating a GitHub area for continued development and updates.

The new home for any new updates to the GPS Maps plugin is located here:
https://github.com/wixiweb

I have also updated the plugin page with more information: http://docs.cacti.net/userplugin:gpsmaps

It has been great to create and contribute to the open source community. I think my time on this project has been finished for some time now and it is good to see it get a much needed update.

Hi guys,

I just installed GPSMAP 1.8.0 upon a 0.8.8b Cacti Server and I am not able to display the map and the objects. Any useful method to debug it?

Have you looked into your cacti log server ?

My setting seems to be OK and I can see the map but no devices on the map. Inside XML folder there are only two files as below and I set permission setting on this folder as 777

drwxrwxrwx 2 apache apache 4096 Apr 22 16:03 XML

[[email protected] gpsmap]# ls -l XML/
total 4
-rwxrwxrwx 1 apache apache 41 Apr 13 2011 index.php
-rwxrwxrwx 1 apache apache 0 Feb 16 2012 XML AND KML RELATED.txt


anything I need to do? Thanks for your help

Under device settings insert the coordinates of the object following this syntax:

Latitude : xx.yy
Longitude: zz.xx

Hello.

I have server with Cacti Version 0.8.8a and Plugin Architecture Version 3.1
Install the new version of GPSMAP (thanks to creators for that) but it is marking error

"A network error has occured while retrieving data markers: 404 - Not Found"

when entering the map tab and shows none of the points, any idea.

The coordinates are as follows;

33.5155701243
-166.9896745600

XML folders have the read and write.

Thank you....

Hello,

You have stuff on the South pole Station :)
Your server need an access through Internet.

Hello.

hahahahahaha. ;-)

The server you have access to internet, like my team .... was one of the first things that occurred to me to review, also check the log to see that no firewall blocking access embers required, but not the case.

The google map as shown in the view coordinates configure.

Also check that out as the key to access google maps API V3 and if it is correct.

Any other ideas.

Thank you.

Dis you rename the folder to "gpsmap"
I had to do this to make it work
the foldername "cacti-gpsmaps" resulting the git clone do not work.
