Re: CereusReporting - PDF/HTML Cacti Reports - v2.90 out !

#931 Post by juliangomezr » Tue Nov 15, 2016 10:15 pm

Hi Every one, I have found that on the PDF reports the title of the graphs were very small, to solve this:

1. go to /usr/share/cacti/plugins/CereusReporting/templates/ or your templates folder,
2. vi CereusReporting.pdf.css
3. Chaneg the font size on .nmidImageText, to large:

.nmidImageText {
font-size: large;
color: #132F70;

I hope that it helps someone... : )

Hi again,

I have a question about CereusReporting:

when Creating a report, it has the option called "Report Appended PDF File", i found it works, but it only adds one page of the selected PDF file, how can I add the total pages of this PDF File?

Hi

Thanks for reporting this. Yes indeed, it is only adding the last(?) page of the PDF.

Version 3.0 has a fix for this, so it adds all the pages of the external PDF file to the end of the PDF Report.

Hi Thanks for your answer.

Do you know when could be ready the new version? Is there a workaround that I could make while the new versions is being developed?

Another thing that I found: creating the report there is an option that says "You can order the items of this report using Drag&Drop functionality", it allows to move the graph, but even if you save the changes, when you enter to the report, the graph is on the original place, so you really cant move it...

And a suggestion: I have to create reports with different times on graphs, could be an excellent option, if you create chapters, you can select the timespan for this chapter, and all the graphs behind it, takes this time for the report... :o

thanks for your time.

In case you already have the latest EXPRESS version, You can try the attached file(s). Make sure to do a backup first.

Thanks for the suggestion. I'm going to have a look into that.

Hi Phalek, thanks for your help.

It worked fine, when i move a graph on the report, it remains on the place I moved it... : )

Respecting to the Report Appended PDF File, It permits to add a PDF document with more than one page, but I saw some situations that probably will be important to notice:

*It creates a blank page between the new document and the appended PDF File.
* it added more than one page
* it did not added the pages that had graphics (the appended file was a report previusly genarated with Cereusreporting)

thanks for your time.

Hi, My native language is spanish, so on the reports I have to use accent marks: á é í ó ú and ñ, but the report change those characters...

I have found that if I change those characters for:

á á
é é
í í
ó ó
ú ú
ñ ñ

it works, but it is very tedious, because we have to use so much this characters...

Does some one knows what can i make to solve it?

Hi

This worked and it looks like some additional security ( filtering/string sanitizing ) did break it.

Now unfortunately that part needs some re-writing as it also looks like it is removing any text after the very first carriage return ...

Progress on Version 3.00 is coming along quite nicely. Several features have been added/updated and the plugin code has been partially re-written.

The following features have bee completed:
- Email Report directly from the end-user interface
- Removed dependency on parallelGraphRetriever tool
- Included new enhanced Reporting engine, removing the old FPDF engine
- Updated and improved availability charts
- Additional templates included

The following tasks still need to be completed:
- Add template management system
- Add new report items ( Add items by RegExp )
- Improved user experience ( run reports in background, notify on completion )
- Ability to assign templates to reports and Cacti trees ( removing patch dependency ).

See the attached PDF report for an example of the new templates. The report has been generated using the new report engine. Please note this is still work-in-progress .
