Thank you so much for your effort, that saves a lot of time when you need to get a Cacti running. However, I am more interested to know how to utilize docker to achieve some level of Cacti configuration management.

When Cacti is installed and running, Cacti related files are spread everywhere, we obviously will add new hosts, new templates, new plugins, creating new RRD files etc ... I want to be able to recreate a Cacti server if original server dies or I want to keep a version control of all important files, it is going to be PITA to achieve this goal via puppet/chef etc, how can docker help here? I understand that Docker is not created for this purpose.

Hi

If you are using separate database just dump it and import into new one and save docker image that you have running

`docker save` should help.. see docker documentation

I started to study docker recently, my first task is to migrate the cacti service to docker, i saw your cacti image in the docker hub and found it very complete, however i am having difficulty migrating the files to that image, can you show me who can to import database into RDD files for this docker?
