For those of you who have been using Cacti to visualize the performance of various elements of your network, it is sometimes necessary to migrate Cacti and all its graph datasets from one server to another. The current server may be old, or is running out of space and CPU, or you may simply want to move to new hardware platform.
Whichever the case, it is possible to move Cacti data sets from one server to another, while minimizing disruptions in graph plotting.
Cacti default 5-minute RRA settings The default Cacti RRAs expect polling every 5 minutes, and use steps of 1, 6, 24, 288.
Multiply by 5 minutes, and that gives RRAs with resolution of 5 minutes, 30 minutes, 2 hours, and 1 day.
Cacti's installation is very simple and you don't need to be expert to complete its setup.
You should really, really get your Cacti RRA settings right before you begin using it.
Cacti defaults to polling every 5 minutes, but a lot of enterprise users change this to 1 minute in order to provide higher resolution for troubleshooting problems.
Hello and welcome to our today's article on another open source Network monitoring tool that is Cacti.
Cacti is a complete network graphing solution designed with RRDTool’s data storage and graphing functionality.
