That would be an interesting read given I've started supporting cacti in my own time. I'll have to see if I can get my boss to spring for it at work since we use it there... though it may be tricky given the year end ;-)

Is there any text supposed to be in this or is it all just screenshots of what's on the system?

I did think that mightily strange given your experience :-D

I have, however, obtained them from packt instead and they are fine. I'll request a refund on Amazon later this week but if you get an update through before then, I'll check it again.

Anyone with the Kindle/Amazon ebook issue. I got the information that the issue will be rectified within 2 days.

Update: There were few errors when the file was uploaded on the third party channels. The book has been re-uploaded on third party channels now and the updated file will be soon available for customers now.

I'm also looking for some Cacti users to review the book. I've been notified by my publisher that there are 10 books available free for distribution with a request to leave a review at Amazon. Please PM or send me an email at [email protected] with some details ( Email, Cacti experience ) so I can forward it.

JJK / netniV if you could add a review as well, I would really appreciate that.

I no longer have the book on Amazon as I had it refunded. Don't think that would stop me leaving an Amazon review....
