Devices - Read-only view of Cacti devices

17th March 2006

This is a simple plugin for the Cacti Plugin Architecture created by Jimmy Conner for Cacti 0.8.x.

I knocked it up to fill a request by Chadd on the Cacti forums, who wanted a tab to show the current availability of his devices, but without the ability to edit the devices. This is a hacked up copy of the 'hosts.php' page that forms the Devices page within the console. All the editing code is removed, and the device links go to the Graph Preview mode, with that device as the filter (so you see only that device's graphs).

To use it, you need to install the Plugin Architecture first, and make sure that you can get plugins to work at all. Then, unpack the devices archive into your plugins folder, and add the following line to your cacti config.php:

$plugins = array();
$plugins[] = 'thold';
$plugins[] = 'update';
$plugins[] = 'weathermap';
$plugins[] = 'links';
$plugins[] = 'devices';
Next, go to User Management for the user you are currently logged in as, and give yourself the new 'realm right' that should have appeared: "View Devices Tab". Then a Devices tab should appear at the top of the page.


Here's a zip file for 0.4.

The plugin is enabled for Jimmy Conner's update plugin, so if you have that plugin, then it will notify you of updates to this one.
