$JOB’s Cacti multi-server infrastructure has been running fine on Cacti 0.8.8b and UnifiedTrees 0.8. However, Cacti 0.8.8f is out and the trees are done quite differently. It’s time to update $JOB’s Cacti infrastructure and to make UnifiedTrees compatible, it had to undergo some major changes.
Got multiple Cacti installs? Want the Tree view of your graphs to show all of your trees mashed together? Then this is the plugin for you.
I wrote a Cacti plugin I called DPDiscover – Discovery Protocol Discover, which uses LLDP, CDP, and FDP information pulled from SNMP to ‘spider’ a network and attempt to automatically add equipment to Cacti. It is heavily based off of the original “Auto Discovery” plugin that would sweep IP ranges.
