Issue with Cacti

I’m sorry to let you know that Cacti probably will not be working on SLAMPP at this moment. During latest preparation for the release of SLAMPP 1.1 some weeks ago, I forgot to compile PHP with net-snmp enable. :( As long as PHP doesn’t has it, Cacti won’t work properly. Thanks to Hayim Siloni for your feedback about this. So, if you still need feature like Cacti enable for your server, you can use ntop instead.

Run this command on console to activate ntop.
# ntop -d -w 3000 -W 0

And then, open your browser, type this link, http://localhost:3000/

ntop web management will be displayed after that. To login to its administration section, use the following username/password combination: admin / slampp

I’m considering to utilize ntop over Cacti in the next release of SLAMPP as it has more features in it.

Furthermore, a new version of SLAMPP hopefully would be available somewhere in December. This release will add some new features like backup system and new linux kernel. All applications and tools would also necessarily be updated.

That will be all for now. Once again, I’m sorry for this inconvenience. If you have any suggestions for the coming release of SLAMPP, please let me know. I will appreciate any feedback coming from you.

Have a nice day!

Update (Dec 08, 2005):
To solve the Cacti issue temporarily, please download the following PHP package. Please choose one which fits your situation most. If you still run SLAMPP as live CD, consider to use the .mo file. Please see How-To how to include the .mo file and edit your live CD.

- php-4.4.1-i486-6.tgz (4.61 MB)
- php-snmp-4.4.1.mo (4.63 MB)

  3. Thank you for your review Andriansah.

    At this moment SLAMPP doesn’t include vi or joe as editors. I usually use mcedit to edit the files. Of course everyone has their own preferences. But, I will have a look whether vi will be included in the next release of SLAMPP.

    Regarding installation problem, did you try to install using the HD installation program or did that manually? Thank you.

    How about just enabling net-snmp? I know ntop is pretty good but cacti is pretty popular. Also, how about not using absolute paths in the links to “localhost”? I’m running SLAMPP in a virtual machine and when I try accessing the server through the web site, it errors out when I use the links. It works fine if I enter the right IP though. Other than that this is an excellent piece of work.

  5. Thank you Bajaguy for your comment. Alright, I will fix the problem and have Cacti included in the next release of SLAMPP together with ntop. :)

    Concerning ‘localhost’, as it is setup to be easily used when it starts on a home PC, the path to localhost is set to absolute one. If you use it on another machine which has an IP address, I think you should manage it with approriate one. You can no longer call that machine with ‘localhost’ as you request it remotely. It’s pretty the same when you call a domain name, that domain name will try to find the IP address where it resides in. I hope you could understand the reason why I use the absolute path.

    Great! I am glad you took my advice regarding the Backup System.

  7. I will include two backup systems in the coming SLAMPP. One for online backup and another for internal use.

    I hope they would work fine.

  9. Andriansah, thank you for your reply.

    If the application didn’t work inside Xfce, you can also try it on console. Just type the following command:

    # python /hd_install/slampp_install_run.py –device=/dev/hda1

    Or, follow the following instructions given by Tomas to install SLAX manually, http://slax.linux-live.org/forum/viewtopic.php?t=5044

    I hope it could help.
