Set Up a Cacti Monitoring Server in Minutes with this GoGrid Community Server Image

Thursday, May 19th, 2011 by

One of the best open-source tools ever created and maintained is Cacti. Cacti can be used to monitor and log critical information for your servers, applications and other network devices. The monitored data can be graphed in a variety of ways and becomes a valuable resource when troubleshooting problems and projecting future resource utilization.

However, the initial configuration can take hours to complete, not including the server OS install process and pre-configuration.

Deploying Cacti Easily in GoGrid

To make this process a bit easier for GoGrid users, I have performed the routine installation of Cacti 0.8.6 along with the package requirements within a Community GSI (GoGrid Server Image). Also, I have added DenyHosts for added system level protection. The ssh_banner will provide the details of what was configured on the system. All that needs to be done is going into your account within the GoGrid portal, clicking on the Add button and filter for “Cacti”.
