Cacti Satellite setup

#1 Post by leostereo » Fri Nov 06, 2015 10:20 am

Hi Guys, this is the situation:
I have a main cacti screen and 5 remote cacti servers.
All of them are interconnected.
My idea is to grab most important graph on the 5 remote cactis and embbeded them onto the main cacti to create a sort of KPI / dashboard screen.
So far I have the following ideas:
1_I dont want to pool again from the main cacti to create the graph.
2_I would like to re-create the graphs using the existing datasources located on the remote cactis.
This could be achieved using a web service or an ssh script or maybe if existes a client-server aplication for rrd db reading.
3_ It think this is the easiest way: To create a "shadow" graph just embbeding the url of the remote cacti into the main cacti.

Any iddeas would be pretiated.

Hi Leostereo,

Did you ever get this answered? Are you looking for a (another) way to do this?
