Can I graph memory usage in windows for cacti?
We are running cacti version 0.8.7i on windows.
When I go into a windows server device and go to the “Associated Graph Templates” section. There is a drop down list “Add Graph Template”
I see one that says “Linux – Memory Usage” but I assume this only works for linux machines?
I also see Cisco Cpu Usage. Can I use any of these ?
short answer: Yes.
long answer: Install the windows SNMP server. From there on you will have to figure out which SNMP ID holds the windows memory. (cheat:
.188.8.131.52.184.108.40.206.220.127.116.11 – Total physical memory .18.104.22.168.22.214.171.124.126.96.36.199 – Used physical memory .188.8.131.52.184.108.40.206.220.127.116.11 – Total virtual memory ["virtual"="swap" in Windows lingo] .18.104.22.168.22.214.171.124.126.96.36.199 – Used virtual memory)
After this: Profit!
