I would like to use Spine instead of default Cacti’s poller. At first, I’m thinking about to use Dag repository. It should work easily if I don’t have DirectAdmin installed. However, I do have DirectAdmin installed and that caused dependencies problem when I tried to yum install it.
configure: error: cannot run /bin/sh config/config.sub
So, here is what I did to install Spine.
1. Get Spine 0.8.7d
shell> wget http://forums.cacti.net/download.php?id=17107 2. Extract it.
tar xzvf cacti-spine-0.8.7d.tar.gz cd cacti-spine-0.8.7d 3. Compile it. I've searched and found many people said that I need to do the following steps :
aclocal libtoolize --force autoconf autoheader automake ./configure make automake
However, I got the following error when I run “automake”
configure.ac:7: required file `config/config.guess' not found configure.ac:7: `automake --add-missing' can install `config.guess' configure.ac:7: required file `config/config.sub' not found configure.ac:7: `automake --add-missing' can install `config.sub'
So, here is what I did (Do steps below only):
aclocal libtoolize --force autoconf autoheader automake --add-missing ./configure make
So, it will look like below :
shell> aclocal shell> libtoolize --force libtoolize: putting auxiliary files in AC_CONFIG_AUX_DIR, `config'. libtoolize: linking file `config/ltmain.sh' libtoolize: Consider adding `AC_CONFIG_MACRO_DIR([m4])' to configure.ac and libtoolize: rerunning libtoolize, to keep the correct libtool macros in-tree. libtoolize: Consider adding `-I m4' to ACLOCAL_AMFLAGS in Makefile.am. libtoolize: `AC_PROG_RANLIB' is rendered obsolete by `LT_INIT' shell> autoconf shell> autoheader shell> automake --add-missing configure.ac:7: installing `config/config.guess' configure.ac:7: installing `config/config.sub' shell> ./configure shell> make
4. Copy Spine to /usr/local/bin and Spine.conf to /etc
cp spine /usr/local/bin cp spine.conf.dist /etc/spine.conf
5. Set Spine Configuration.
cd /etc nano -w spine.conf
Set Spine Configuration below :
6. Log into Cacti. Set Spine Path in Settings :
At Console -> Configuration -> Settings -> Paths -> Spine Poller File Path
Set it to /usr/local/bin/spine
7. Set Cacti to use Spine
At Console -> Configuration -> Settings -> Poller -> Poller Type
Change it from cmd.php to Spine
Note : For Crontab that is set before. Do not remove it. That Crontab will pick poller type by itself from what we set in the Cacti Settings.
