    LiteSpeed SNMP/Cacti 1.0b2 Released

    1.0b2 (beta2) version of the LiteSpeed Parser/SNMP Bridge/Cacti Templates has been released.

    Enjoy! Feedback and especially tips on how to create better and more effective Cacti graphs are most welcome.

    There are 7 types of graphs monitoring 7 distinct data groups. One can monitor on 3 levels: General (Server Global) Level, per VHost Level, and per External Application level.

    Change Log:

    Beta2: 7/19/2006
    -----------------
    Only litespeed_cacti_template.xml file has been modified. Re-import the template file within Cacti to upgrade to Beta2.

    * Fixed Data Query template xml location value.
    * Removed 95th percentile graphing from Traffic graphs. Cacti problem.
    * Fixed Traffic graphs to properly convert displayed/graphed value to "bits".
    * Update ExtApp connections graph to make it less "messy". Removed IdleConn line: redundant and obvious it is the diff between PoolSize and InUseConn.
    * Updated various graphs to make the colors more consistent.

    Beta1: 7/17/2006
    -----------------
    Inital Release

    Here are 5 sample graphs.

    Great stuff, thanks.

    one little bug in litespeed_cacti_template.xml:

    <hash_04001176d81d4e3c52dab62afa5205a9c517a2>
    <name>LiteSpeed ExtApp</name>
    <description>LiteSpeed ExtApp</description>
    <xml_path>/xingwww/cacti/litespeed_extapp.xml</xml_path>

    The xml_path needs to be:
    <xml_path>&lt;path_cacti&gt;/resource/snmp_queries/litespeed_extapp.xml</xml_path>

    Otherwise its looking good and the graphs are collection now.
    Will look into it a little bit deeper later on.

    Thank you for the feedback. We found a problem where "Plain/SSL Traffic" graphs are plotting values with the wrong conversion factor. It's coverting KBytes to KBits instead of KBytes to bits (off by a factor 1000).

    A new b2 release will be released later today with the the path and traffic graphic fix.

    Issue with SNMP

    I keep getting the error message below when i try and snmpwalk:

    SNMPv2-SMI::enterprises.8888.101 = No Such Instance currently exists at this OID

    When i use V1 i get no message at all. I know my config is ok b/c i can access anything else:

    snmpwalk -c hhpv2 -v 2c localhost .1.3.6.1.4.1

    Returns a whole bunch of info. All i added to my config was the line:

    pass .1.3.6.1.4.1.8888 /etc/snmp/litespeed/sample.php

    and i replaced the first 2 lines of sample.php to the following:

    #!/usr/local/bin/php
    <?php

    Since my php does not use short tags, am i missing something here? Is there a way for me to test it via the command line and no SNMP?
