It has been far too long since a video tutorial made its debut here, so I would like to introduce a new tutorial!
Cacti is a great graphing and monitoring tool, but I have struggled in the past with getting it installed, and getting it to do what I want. It can be a little bit complex and fiddly, but recently I have had more success and am putting it to good use measuring and graphing more things.
In this tutorial, I will walk you through installing Cacti on a basic CentOS 6 system with Apache, PHP and MySQL already installed. By the end of the video, it is collecting information for the default graphs in the default installation.
I hope to extend this video series soon with some details about the additional graphs I have recently succeeded at getting installed.
As always, your comments and feedback are appreciated!
