Graphs Do Not Display Any Data

Hi

I am a first time cricket user. Figured I'd pick something simple to
graph to start off with. Using http-performance to monitor 2 URLS.

Cricket is collecting data fine, but when i check my graphs, no data is
being displayed. Errors from the www log show:

Expanding rra without loosing old data


Hi everybody,

we're now collecting data since one year and would like to expand our
graphs. Is it possible to change rras to expand colltected data up to 2-4
years without loosing old graphs.

Thanks

FW: collector runs but no result put in RRD

Hi Guys,
 
The strangest thing is happening with one of subtree sets.  
 
I can collect data fine except for one of my subtrees!!! 
 
When I test the collector manually if collects data fine but when I run it via the cron it doesnt collect data? what am I missing?

Re: FW: collector runs but no result put in RRD

Hi,

Check you don't have an old lock file in /tmp. If that doesn't work try
putting a MAILTO entry in the cron job so you get any errors generated.

Cheers,

Andrew

Not a simple interger when using High Capacity SNMP counters

I am trying to gather statistics from Gigabit interfaces and OC3 interfaces on a Cisco router (Cisco 7513 running Version 12..2.21).  When I run the collector the first time everything works fine.  But when I try to run the collector subsequently I get the following errors on the high speed interfaces.  The interfaces that aren't using the high capacity (64 bit counters) work fine.

Multiple levels of "instances"?

Cricket newbie here; using 1.0.5 on FreeBSD 4.10-STABLE (via FreeBSD
ports), only for the last 3 days or so.

Cricket looks quite promising, but I'm getting a bit confused as to how
to set up the monitoring for the specific class of devices for which I'm
investigating Cricket, and I'd appreciate some guidance.  [Yes, I have
searched through the archives to some extent, as well as read the bulk
of the reference manual & other forms of docs.]

The issue is that the devices I'm trying to monitor have something
akin to "multiple interfaces" at more than one level, and the number
of those "multiple instances" can change over time.

More specifically, I'm dealing with Aperto PacketWave 1000 Base
Station Units (BSUs).  Each such BSU has one Ethernet NIC and from
0 (well, 0 would not be useful, but...) to 6 "Wireless Subsystems"
("WSSs" -- radios, really).  Each WSS, in turn, may be connected
to some number of complementary "Subscriber Units" ("SUs" --
basically, CPE gear; one side radio and the other is Ethernet).  (A
given WSS is, in our usage, typically attached to a sector antenna, and
used as part of a "point-to-multipoint" configuration.)

The objective is to monitor various health & signal quality metrics, as
well as traffic, for the various components of the system.  This
includes the BSU itself, each WSS, as well as each SU.

(If we get this far, we also would probably want to go a bit further:
we will typically feed multiple customers from a single SU, and being
able to break those out would probably be useful at some point in the
future.  Still, that's more a "desired direction" than an immediate
requirement.)

The number of WSSs connected to a given BSU is admittedly relatively
constant, so I could implement this part as separate targets.  But the
only difference between looking at an OID for WSS1 vs. the corresponding
OID for WSS2 is that the first ends in .1, while the second ends in .2.
So I think I'd prefer to "lump things together" if that's feasible.

[Indeed, I've managed to get to this point so far -- though it's rather
imperfect, at best.  The "Index" is a little weird, but seems to work.
And I need to improve my data-representation skills.  :-}]

But I'm a bit stumped when I get to the SUs:  I don't see how I can use
"instance mapping" for the SUs if I'm also using it for the WSSs.

If someone has an example that illustrates a way of doing this type
of thing, and wouldn't mind sharing (a sanitized version of) it,
or could point me at where such an approach is documented, I think
that would be ideal.

In any case, if I get this working, I plan to contribute it back, both
to Cricket and to Aperto.  :-}

Thanks,
david

Mod for GenRtrConfig 1.5.48

Francois,

long time...

I noticed that my FWSM blades were not collecting CPU data and only memory. Some 
snooping around and I found that they report same data as regular PIX. So I 
modified the script to recognize the FWSM code. here is the diff between your 
original script and my mod...

Seems to work. There is also a mod to the 2950xl :-)

892,893c892
< if ($opts{sysDescr} =~ /Cisco PIX Firewall Version 6\.[23]/ ||
<     $opts{sysDescr} =~ /FWSM Firewall/) {
---
 > if ($opts{sysDescr} =~ /Cisco PIX Firewall Version 6\.[23]/) {
1051c1050
<     } elsif  ($model eq 'C3500XL' || $model eq 'C2900XL' || $model eq 'C2900xl') {
---
 >     } elsif  ($model eq 'C3500XL' || $model eq 'C2900XL') {

Errors on Collector

Hi all cricket experts
 
I am new to cricket and have only recently installed vsn 1.0.5 on a machine running Red-Hat 9
I am only monitoring 2 switches at the moment
I ran the genRtconfig script to get the snmp info
With very little modification to this output in the config tree
 
when I run collector i get
 

Use of uninitialized value in pattern match (m//) at /home/cricket/cricket/lib/Common/Util.pm line 68

Use of uninitialized value in pattern match (m//) at ./collector line 443

 
This is repeated for every target
 
I am sure the error is in my installation or config
 
 
Anyone any ideas?
 
Many thanks in advance for your help

Re: Not a simple interger when using High Capacity SNMP counters

I have had the same error message reading big numbers (>64K) on a Cisco 4000.

I got no response on this list.

Please let me know if you get a response.  I was able to just exclude the relevant interface.

My number being colllecte actually showed as negative, and looked like a wraparound at 2**32-1

RE: Not a simple interger when using High Capacity SNMP counters

I got a response from one person.  That is all.
 
He suggested switching from GAUGE to DERIVE.  But the interfaces look like they are already at DERIVE.  I was going to try switching to GAUGE but haven't had a chance to try it yet.  The other option to try is COUNTER.
