Cacti data sources and graphs not created (complex)

Hi,

General / summary:
One of my data queries doesn't work. It's a new one but the same one works on one host and not on another
(actually doesn't work on a couple of others tried).
>From initial (as far as I could) analysis - the data query does not create the graph and data sources
correctly on the effected host(/hosts) and rrd is not created (nor does poller ever retrieves the data).

********************************************************************************
How do I see a log of a new graph creation (from device -> data query), not the poller events (that aren't,
there are none).
********************************************************************************

Specific:
I've took example of two hosts: "Peach" and "Orange", both trying to add the same generated data queries
(from script server) graphs.
It all works well as expected in "Orange", but does not in "Peach"
I've included everything in screenshots (those are temporary internal lab servers so I don't mind) so
you'd get the full picture.
The two differences I can see tell between the two are:

1.       "Peach"'s (not working) MVSnew dataquery is significantly larger (150 items, 75 rows) vs. "Orange"'s
one (8 items, 4 rows).

2.       Peach has a lot of script server data queires, about 65, vs. very little on Orange.

Performance

Hi

We are allready using spine,
but the balancing from hosts to processes/threads seems not to be the best.

The first 20 seconds, the system will be under heavy load,
but later only two spine processes are running and it will already take about 230 seconds to complete one run.

Do you have any suggestions about optimization?

Cacti script_server index invocation

Hi,

I've tried the same question in the forums (http://forums.cacti.net/viewtopic.php?f=21&t=54713) for
the last couple of days with no reply, I hope someone can pick it up here.

I don't recall encountering this in the docs nor the FAQs, if it's there please enlighten me and if not IMHO it
belongs there.

I have a very expensive script server "index" query, one I want to do as seldom as possible.
When does an index query called? once? whenever num_indexes change? can I set it up to only manually as
num_indexes is equally as expensive.

Thanks, Bye, Nitzan.

Adding links to weathermap

Hi there Cacti Users,

I want to script the ability to add links to the weathermap.  Is there a 
tool out there that does this already?  Any ideas about how to make this 
task easier to do?

Cheers,

Noah

ISSUE : Create a RRD file in cacti to get a bar view in cacti

Dear Team ,

I want to create a  bar graph rather than a line or default view in cacti.

For this purpose i am using RRD tools

I have  a script in perl i.e rrdbar.cgi.pl that generate a bar graph but i
am facing issue while creating a rrd file

*RRD file* is created for database and it requires following parameter to
give bar view

1.RRD file
2.DS : one or more data sources, separated by + or  <at>  for bar view
3.T : time interval
4.MAX: maximum upper bound for the data
5.LAB : Labelstyle.
6.WID : Bar width
7.LEN : Bar length

>From README file i have configured everything i.e file location . but i am
facing an issue while making a RRD file

I have generated one RRD file and gives path on browser

*http://localhost/cacti/cgi-bin/rrdbar.cgi.pl?RRD=meshdata.rrd&DS=ds0%20 <at> ds1
<http://localhost/cacti/cgi-bin/rrdbar.cgi.pl?RRD=meshdata.rrd&DS=ds0%20 <at> ds1>*

and give usual output .

Bug on graphs_new.php since upgrade to 0.8.8c

Hi All,

Since an upgrade from 0.8.8b to 0.8.8c we are experiencing issues with the 'pages' which you can scroll
through on the New Graph page.

Whenever there is more than one Data Query section on the New Graphs page, it doesn't matter which page
number you choose, it always changes the page on the lowest query (in our case, SNMP - Interface
Statistics). So even though there are 3 other query sections above it, no matter which one you click on (or
which page number you request) the page is always changed on the SNMP - Interface Statistics section.

Full sequence:

Select a host from the "Devices" tab (from http://cacti-server/host.php)
Select "Create Graphs for this host" (from http://cacti-server/graphs_new.php?host_id=142)

Then, 3 different page-changing example selections are made as follows:

Example URL if I choose page 8 on the first query we have called "Cisco - CBFWQ Scripting":

http://cacti-server/graphs_new.php?page1=8

Example URL if I choose page 5 on the second query we have called "Interface Queueing":

http://cacti-server/graphs_new.php?page1=5

Example URL if I choose page 3 on the final query we have, the default "SNMP - Interface Statistics":

http://cacti-server/graphs_new.php?page1=3

As you can see, every link, no matter which query type I click on, always makes the same URL, and therefore

Issue : RRD files not created

Hi,

I’m having issue with one of the devices we monitor with cacti. I’m trying to get graph for
hrProcessLoad from an SNMP device, but the rrd is not created. I’ve searched the web, but most of the
suggestion is about permission issue of <htdocs>/cacti/rra which I have confirmed to be not the issue.
I’m running 0.8.8c on SLES 11 SP3.

Here’s the output from cacti.log about the poller. As seen, the poller is able to retrieve the value from
the device, issue a rrdtool create command, and rrdtool update command. But there’s not graph created
