SNMP system values

Cacti doesn’t have system informations with default. If you need system values (sysDescr, sysNaem, sysUpTime …), then you install “system.xml”.

  1. For Debian/Ubuntu

    sudo cp utils/cacti/system.xml /usr/share/cacti/resource/snmp_queries/
  2. Add Data Queries

    Name: SNMP - Get System Information
    Description: SNMP System Information
    XML Path: <path_cacti>/resource/snmp_queries/system.xml
    Data Input Method: Get SNMP Data (Indexed)
  3. Add Host Templates

    "Left menu" > "Host Templates" > YOUR_TEMPLATE_NAME > "Associated Data Queries" > Add
    "Add Data Query": "SNMP - Get System Information" # Select and Add.
