Appreciation

#1 Post by Dacob9906 » Tue Apr 03, 2007 1:10 pm

So, I wasn't quite sure where to post this, so I just put it here. I just thought it would be nice to have somewhere that we can all post our appreciation for everything that the Cacti group does. I don't know a whole lot about programming or even the cacti project yet, (just getting it up and running, kinda new) but I know that they spend hours every week working on this; providing everyone with a tool that would otherwise cost thousands of dollars to purchase. I think you guys are all great, whoever you all are, I'm sure I will get to know some of you, I hope. So I just wanted to say thanks for everything you do and all the time that you put into this project, and all the help I will recieve in the future. :D

Thanks guys

I figured you would move it to general, but I couldn't post there. Cool, I will look into donating, kinda poor, but every little bit helps right. :D

Appreciation should be done in a more formal setting...

We need to arrange a Cacti Users Group Conference, in Vegas...

I totally agree with you Gandalf,
Not that famous but a beauty spot.

Hi StarLog,
we currently try to schedule the 2.CactiCommunityConference.eu to the 19.-21.October 2007 at the Linuxhotel in Essen. It's really the best location for such events and very cheap for OpenSourceCommunities (including a flat rate for beer :lol: ). Look at http://www.linuxhotel.de. We are disussing the agenda and timeline. Do You have any ideas and suggestions?? Where do you live??

Best regards

I totally agree with the Original Poster. Devotion like that is what makes Open Source work and makes it awesome!

Keep it up! :-)!

Thank you so much Ian, Larry, Tony, and Jimmy! Our business completely depends on Cacti to operate. Without it, not much would happen :P

This is one of the best Open Source projects out there. So much support for free. Just wanted to thank you guys!

9 Months with cacti!
I wanted to say that this is a great tool for me. Since 9 Months ago, my Cacti box (CactiEZ) has evolved to include flowscan (right in Cacti), then I added IDS (using the same port that collect the flowscan data), and then a continous tcpdumper with a script to timestamp each tcpdump file (25Meg files). I then soon just about run out of space, so I set up a NSLU1 linksys ftp with a 300Gig HDD to have backups and the dump files transfered there via automatic scripts to hold 2 weeks of backups, and 2 months of dumps. Now I've integrated the 'docs' plugin and changed the main console page to include recent news! I include now Reports, ReportIt, aggregate, and more. Weathermap is also a sweet addon for bosses, they LOVE IT!!!
I am constantly making small changes to best suit fit for our company, and I wanted to bragg abit, and say thanks! If I had of went with Solarwinds, or something similar, even though there are more features, I would not have the flexibility to modify to do that.
Keep up the great work Cacti Community! I learned lots about my network, and I learned a great deal of Linux! Can't wait to see the what the future years of development will bring!

I also wanted to add that the support is great also! You guys are doing great at keeping us cactitians happy!!!
