Aggregate Interfaces Limitation

#1 Post by lopsa84 » Sun Nov 03, 2013 8:28 pm

Hi,

I'm currently working on a project that requires me to monitor traffic from different ports on different switches (~50). I would like to have 1 graph that shows me the total outbound traffic for all of these interfaces. I'm new using CACTI and the aggregate plugin and what I have encounter is what looks to be a limitation on the amount of interfaces that can be aggregated. Can anyone point me to the right track? Thanks in advance.

I've been testing it out and I was able to add ~160 ports from 10 different switches with no problem. I have created a template just to add all the outbound traffic.

Hi,

I'm attaching the template I created in order to add all these interfaces. Please be advise that using this template the graph will only not display all the legend only the total of all the interfaces just to keep it nice. Hope this helps someone since it took a lot of time. Also, the name says aggregate outbound but really you can use inbound and just change the name.
