Integrate PIA into Cacti

#1 Post by yuval_ba » Sun Nov 14, 2010 5:38 pm

Hi,

(sorry if this was discussed before, I could not find...)

I was wondering why not integrate PIA into the main Cacti core?
After all it is simply an extension/patch to the main Cacti code, no?

It will save all the hassle to keep updating PIA for every release/patch of Cacti.
Also, currently PIA can be hard to install if you have existing Cacti install that you might have done small modifications to and now wants to add PIA...

You are correct.
We will integrate PIA into main cacti code starting with next cacti version, which will be 0.8.8.
Unfortunately, development was delayed due to some security issues which had to be fixed first (this was published as 087g). We still are not ready for alpha release. But PIA is already in. See SVN/main
