  1. problems with polling windows (2003) servers over SNMP using cacti

    Hi,

    I'm having problems with polling win2003 servers over SNMP using
    cacti.

    The situation
    - The polling server is a Sintinix installaion running on a VM inside
    GSX Server (that's hosted bij a w2003)
    - The polling server has it's own bridged IP address
    - all rrd-files are owned by root
    - The final goal is being able to graph all the parameters available
    in windows perf. mon.

    Parts that works:
    - I verified that I can reach them over SNMP from the polling server
    - getting statistics from the server itself on it's external exposed
    IP address is no problem

    Parts that do NOT work:
    - As soon as I try to get graphs from a windows machine it either
    -> shows an empty graph (so no data is collected)
    -> doesn't show a graph at all

    What can be the problem? Can anyone help me out on this one?

    Kind regards,

    Hi,

    I am not a specialist but I am using sentinix for about 1 month now and It's
    quite fresh in my brain.
    (But i used it ony to graph some quite simple stuff like interface, disk
    usage and memory)

    My first question is how do you create your "device" ?
    --> is it ok ? (you shouldn't have a snmp error at the top of the device
    page)
    --> the device must be UP on the "all devices" page (If not UP the device
    will not be query by the poller)

    In the device page
    --> do you have a "success [ X Items, Y Rows] in your "Associated Data
    Queries" ?? (Where X and Y are diffrent from 0) [SNMP - Get Processor
    Information for example]

    How do you "create" the data source ?
    --> did you make your own data template ? or is it a data queries ? etc ?
