Cacti Beginners Guide Book - Update to Cacti Version 1.0

#1 Post by phalek » Wed Jan 18, 2017 2:38 am

Hi folks,

I was finally able to get in touch with Pack Publishing regarding my Cacti Book ( 0.8 Beginners Guide / ISBN-13 978-1849513920 ).

They are interested in an update so I'm going to compile a list with updated chapters.

Some chapters will be removed ( e.g Blackberry client ), some new ones will be added (atuom8 ?).

I would like to know which topics you would like to see on there, so post them here !

Ok.

I decided to go for a Version 1.0 book including the new multiple poller stuff and some(most?) of the integrated plugins.

I've already signed the contract and will start writing in Februrary. Hope it will prove a good starting point for new Cacti 1.0 users.

Yes,

9 Chapters completed, 5 still to go.

The new ones will be:
  • 13: MIGRATE CACTI TO A NEW SERVER
  • 14: MULTIPLE POLLERS WITH CACTI
And if time allows a small chapter on getting Cacti running on a Raspberry PI


See here:

I still need some Reviewers:
