Need to use a fixed value

#1 Post by Chrysalis » Fri Nov 08, 2019 7:54 pm

So I am trying to use a fixed value of 100

Trying to avoid fetching a value from a data source as it seems stupid to be using a data source to get a fixed number.
If I enter a fixed number in something like CDEF or VDEF its rejected as invalid by rrdtool.
If I try to use zero to get there in CDEF so e.g. 0+100, or variable/0+100, I end up with NaN as a value as it seems cacti cannot work with values of zero in any part of its calculations.

So whats the solution other than making a dummy data source that always supplies the number 100?

Also I tried setting max graph value to 100 and using the CDEF special function max graph limit, but that also makes rrdtool reject saying 100 is invalid input.

If you are trying to use it in a CDEF, you just enter it.
