Beginning with cacti

To get started using the cacti module with default settings use:

include ::cacti

However, the following NEED to be defined in hiera since no defaults are provided:

  • cacti::database_root_pass

  • cacti::database_pass

  • cacti::managed_services

Alternatively, if hiera is not available you can pass in the parameters directly:

class { '::cacti':
  database_root_pass => 'yourpass',
  database_pass => 'yourpass',
  managed_services => [ 'httpd', 'snmpd' ],
}

Usage

The following can be changed from their defaults by specifying values either in hiera or by passing them in as parameters:

  • cacti::cacti_package - Cacti's package name - DEFAULTS to "cacti"

  • cacti::database_root_pass - The database password for the root user

  • cacti::database_type - The type of database used - DEFAULTS to "mysql"

  • cacti::database_default - The database used by cacti - DEFAULTS to "cacti"

  • cacti::database_host - The hostname where the database in installed - DEFAULTS to "localhost"

  • cacti::database_user - The database user that cacti uses - DEFAULTS to "cacti"

  • cacti::database_pass - The database password for the cacti user

  • cacti::database_port - The port that the database is listening on - DEFAULTS to "3306"

  • cacti::database_ssl - Use SSL for database communication - DEFAULTS to "false"

  • cacti::managed_services - The services that this module will manage. Unless being managed elsewhere, you should define this as => [ 'httpd, 'snmpd' ]

Parameter example

class { '::cacti':
  cacti_package => 'cacti',
  database_root_pass => 'yourpass',
  database_pass => 'yourpass',
  database_type => 'mysql',
