Spine 1 Minute Polling Problem

#1 Post by shoelessfarmer » Mon Nov 08, 2010 5:40 pm


I am currently having a problem with a Spine when trying to do a 1 minute interval. When I use cmd.php the 1 minute polling works perfectly...as soon as I switch to Spine, it immediately breaks.

CentOS 5.5
cacti-0.8.7g-2.el5.rf (RPM from RPM Forge)
cacti-spine-0.8.7g (built from source)

Logs show the following (this effectively repeats every minute):
11/07/2010 07:05:01 AM - POLLER: Poller[0] NOTE: Poller Int: '60', Cron Int: '60', Time Since Last: '60', Max Runtime '58', Poller Runs: '1'
11/07/2010 07:05:01 AM - POLLER: Poller[0] DEBUG: About to Spawn a Remote Process [CMD: /usr/local/spine/spine, ARGS: 0 3]
11/07/2010 07:06:00 AM - POLLER: Poller[0] Maximum runtime of 58 seconds exceeded. Exiting.
11/07/2010 07:06:00 AM - SYSTEM STATS: Time:58.7854 Method:spine Processes:1 Threads:30 Hosts:4 HostsPerProcess:4 DataSources:22 RRDsProcessed:0

I found a bug, 1815 (http://bugs.cacti.net/view.php?id=1815) which looks like it addressed this problem...what I can't seem to find out is if the version of code they mentioned in the bug has been rolled into 0.8.7g. Anybody have any insight into this?

You don't need to change your cron job interval to 1 min in order to get 1 min polling.
Try leaving your cron job at 5 min interval and only setting poller interval to 1 min inside Cacti settings.
There is a great thread about 1 min polling you can check out here:
