Cacti Beginner's Guide - Second Edition - Reviewers needed

#1 Post by phalek » Thu Sep 14, 2017 2:08 am

Hi Cacti community,

I've in the process of updating my Beginners Guide for Cacit 1.x and I'm currently looking for reviewers ( hence a General Help request :-) ).

Anyone up to it ?

Here's a link to the chapters: https://www.packtpub.com/networking-and ... nd-edition

Please PM me or reply to this post.

Regards

Thomas

I'm game to help review and contribute if needed. I currently manage a graphing system for a tier 2 ISP consisting of over 750 devices, over 13 thousand graphs, and over 100 users. Please feel free to direct message me with what I need to do.

You have a pm :D

- A chapter with most common problems and/or some advanced problems and their solution would be really nice :D

- A chapter with some advanced (or weird) monitoring stuff, for example:
* a web application login delay
* monitoring IoT devices (the power consumption of a IoT device)
etc
cacti rulez!

Hi

The book is about to be published, so no new reviewers required.

Thanks for anyone who volunteered for the review.

Kind Regards

Thomas

I'll have to try and remember to take a look next week. I've been working on some bug fixes so been learning some of the system.
