 Post subject: [Cacti 1.0.6] Graph template from custom SNMP get OIDs

Hi everybody,

I would like to create a custom graph template with 3 input items and each of them has to be a data source with a custom OID manually inserted during the creation of the graph.

In earlier versions of cacti (8.8x) I could achieve such a thing by
  • creating data sources in advance for an host with "Generic OID template"
  • Create a graph with no data sources attached
  • attach the custom data sources to the graph.


In Cacti 1.0.x there is no chance to create a data source in that way and creating a data template with 3 data sources also does not work because when I try to generate a graph I have a request to insert only a single OID for all the 3 data input sources.

Now the options are :D
  • I don't know how to create custom data sources in Cacti 1.0.6
  • I didn't understand what data source inputs in data templates are meant to
  • There is a bug/design issue on having multiple SNMP Get data inputs in a single data template

Thanks everyone in advance, this is important for our monitoring.

Ok let me answer this myself :lol:

Apparently IT IS possible to add custom data sources in cacti 1.0.x , following this post and modifying the following setting:

Seems you can create data source independently:
Settings->Other Settings->Graph/Data Source Creation Method = Advanced
The default is "Simple" which disables this functionality.

Now anyway, question still remains that possibly it may be much more clean to be able to create a graph template that calls back for a multiple SNMP get data inputs with manual insertions OIDs.

Is this something possilbe? (feature request?)

You can also no longer create a graph referencing data sources from multiple devices, quite annoying that this functionality was removed.

I think that now you can achieve the same with "Aggregate" Graphs
