Cacti device status not updating
To do that, open a browser and open the Cacti web interface, which should be on the for the username and password - right after that you will be advised to change the default password to one of your choice.
Now you can start adding the machines and routers you want to be monitored by Cacti.
If your environment constist of a lot of machines you might want to prefer using Cacti Spine just for that reason - performance.
To install Cacti Spine, we are going to use again the Free BSD Ports Collection.
Most configurations # use only name-based virtual hosts so the server doesn't need to worry about # IP addresses.
This is indicated by the asterisks in the directives below.
Assuming you have read the handbook for installing and configuring My SQL server under Free BSD, we will now create the database for Cacti.
You can skip this step, if your machines or routers already have configured SNMP daemons.
Here we are going to use the SNMP daemon that comes with the base Free BSD system - bsnmpd(1) You might also want to install a more extensible SNMP daemon like net-mgmt/net-snmp, but this is not in the scope of the current handbook. Please refer to the manual page for bsnmpd(1) for more information about the different options and explanation of them.
To install Cacti from the Free BSD Ports Collection, execute the following command: Now let’s continue with the configuration.
In this step we will configure the SNMP daemon on the Free BSD machines to be monitored.
