Cacti 0.8.8b non-interactive installation and configuration

It may happen, you need to install Cacti without any user interaction. Usually after you install Cacti you need to finish the installation using Web installation wizard where you need to specify some details.

I would like to share the details how to install the Cacti 0.8.8b the automated way without user interaction.

Cacti Installation:

Download the OpenStack Infrastructure project's script which will help with automated adding of the hosts to the Cacti:

Then you can easily run "/root/create_graphs.sh my_host" to add the "linux" host into the Cacti. (You will need to setup the SNMP daemon on the client machine first)

Few Screenshots:

Enjoy :-)
