Cacti Graphs


There are occasions where the status indicators are just not enough, and one wants to see a little more history. This gadget pulls in graphs from cacti for display on nagvis pages.

It uses cURL, so you will need the relevant PHP module installed and enabled. The required parameters are passed in through gadget_opts, most imnportantly the graph_id (unfortunately neither hostname nor servicename can be used to cleanly identify the relevant graph in cacti).

The gadget also provides user authentication, but I haven't tried this on a cacti installation using LDAP, so any feedback would be appreciated. Username, password and the cacti base URL are defined via global variables.

The parameters provided via gadget_opts allow setting of width, height, legend display and the time period (from a set of predefined constants ranging from 30 minutes to 2 years).

Juan Manuel 2011-09-19 16:31:26 I have the same problem, when I tried to graph on nagvis it doesn't work, instead a text "Cannot find a suitable graph for host XXXX and service YYYYY" is shown. Thanks for your help.
Stefan Eichberger 2011-07-25 11:14:57 Hi. I guess it won't be relevant anymore but anyway. I had the same issue and I forgot that the php5 curl module was not installed. installing and restarting apache did the trick

Bomm 2011-05-27 09:35:34 Thanks a lot for this tool ;) Unfortunately I can't make it run right now ... I tried some changes in the source code as asked (base url...) but when I want to add the gadget on a map, i only see characters saying "service_2" for example but no graph .. I don't really know where my error comes from ... URL, OPTS ..? May be you can help me, it would be very nice :) Thanks again !
