images not showing up

I just installed NetMRG and am not seeing the pictures. I used the RPM. Also, the rrd/ dir is empty. I went through the steps on setting up a group and all that crap and though I'm not sure what to put for the SNMPv1 community I added "ifInOctets.%ifIndex%" so that's probably wrong. Anyway the graph isn't showing up for the lan traffic graphs, which are the only graphs I've set up thus far.

Also, [root@localhost rrd]# netmrg-gatherer -c1023 -l1023

For SNMP v1 and v2c, your community string is commonly something like 'public' unless you've configured it.

The libmysqlclient error definitly looks bad. What version of RedHat are you using? Are you using stock RedHat rpms or others?

Hopefully we can get stuff figured out. Thanks for your help.

I'm using Redhat 9. The RPMs installed are default RPMs from Redhat and other various groups which put out their own for their softwares. MYSQL was installed via RPMs and is the latest release by Redhat.

Could you do a [code117d4bfbe73]rpm -qa | grep -i mysql[/code117d4bfbe73] and post the results?

Also, did you do a fresh Red Hat install or did you upgrade from a previous version?

Some preliminary reading indicates that re-installing the mysql-devel RPM might fix this problem, if you want to try that first.

Good luck, and let us know the results.

Okay; the MySQL-shared package looks bad. That looks like its from a MySQL provided RPM. Try..
[code1421220675b]
rpm -e MySQL-shared
[/code1421220675b]
RPM should complain if anything depends on it, but everything should be supplied by Red Hat's 'mysql' package

Let us know how that goes. Don't try that 'rpm -e' if you don't feel comfortable with it; it just looks out of place from my experience w/ Red Hat boxes.

21-10-2003 20:37:25

Well it worked that time. Thing is I'm not getting data into my Network Interface at this point. Could you supply me with some quick default instructions to get eth0 and eth1 monitored on different graphs? Or is that possible?

Also, I was messing around with my NOTWORKING (in the sense of no data) Interface monitor so I clicked RECACHE INTERFACES under the Group or whatever and nothing came up, a page loaded but it didn't show me anything though it seemed to have spots where data should have been displayed under different columns.

After I can solve the graphs not displaying data, is there a way (simple, not hard as heck) to get separate graphs for eth0(also ppp0) and eth1(in/out of lan to wan)?

Ok, I think your SNMP config needs tweaked.

Try changing the "subtree" to ".1" instead of the default, which I think is "system." Here is what that section of my snmpd.conf looks like

[code1a84e9967d8]
####
# First, map the community name "public" into a "security name"

# sec.name source community
com2sec notConfigUser default public

####
# Second, map the security name into a group name:

# groupName securityModel securityName
group notConfigGroup v1 notConfigUser
group notConfigGroup v2c notConfigUser

####
# Third, create a view for us to let the group have rights to:

# name incl/excl subtree mask(optional)
view systemview included .1

####
# Finally, grant the group read-only access to the systemview view.

# group context sec.model sec.level prefix read write notif
access notConfigGroup "" any noauth exact systemview none none
[/code1a84e9967d8]

It should be easy to graph each individual interface (should be able to click [ba84e9967d8]Monitor/Graph[/ba84e9967d8] on the [ba84e9967d8]Interface Cache[/ba84e9967d8] page). If you're trying to graph traffic that flows in a specific path (not just through a specific interface), then that could get much harder.

Let us know how things turn out.

Still nothing and I changed the name to .1.3.6.1.2.1.1 to reflect the configuration file.

[code19a4e81583f]
com2sec notConfigUser default public

group notConfigGroup v1 notConfigUser
group notConfigGroup v2c notConfigUser

view systemview included .1.3.6.1.2.1.1
view systemview included .1.3.6.1.2.1.25.1.1[/code19a4e81583f]

Also it seems that i was netgathering and something went wrong with my connection so umm it's now "locked." Where's the lock file to remove? What sort of path within netmrg? And possibly the name to "locate."

silfreed

NetMRG keeps all its lockfiles and output info in the log directory. For the RPM, this should be in /var/log/netmrg, and in your case, /var/log/netmrg/lockfile (just 'rm' it and you should be good).
Running the netmrg_cron.sh script will also take care of this for you, but is normally meant to be run from cron.
Also, I think Brady meant that your community string will remain 'public', but modify the line that says
[code1e90763783c]
view systemview included .1.3.6.1.2.1.1
view systemview included .1.3.6.1.2.1.25.1.1
[/code1e90763783c]
to just be
[code1e90763783c]
view systemview included .1
[/code1e90763783c]
and restart snmp (service snmpd restart).
Doing a 'recache interfaces' for the device should then show eth0, eth1, and if you're ppp session is up, ppp0. You can then just click 'graph/monitor' next to each interface and it'll start gathering (this takes about 10 minutes before graphs w/ data show up). In the device tree, open up your group (click on the name), then there should be an orange graph next to your device. Click on that to view your interface traffic.

Well it seems to be working (still waiting on the 10 minutes to pass to see graphs working). Is there a way to have a page that can show up with graphs without going through all of the Device kinda stuff so that I can put them up for public access by going to just one specific page?

balleman

21-10-2003 22:52:54

The view page (which is what you see when you click the orange graph icons on the Device Tree page) is bookmarkable/linkable. Those viewing the graphs will still need to log into NetMRG, but it should then redirect them to the page they tried to go to.

Why would it not be showing data as of yet?

I'm not sure why you wouldn't be seeing anything. The monitors running on subdevices 5 and 6 (your interfaces) look to be working perfectly. What do you see when you view the device (Device Tree -> orange graph icon beside your device name)? Do you see blank graphs or no graphs at all?

I am only seeing blank graphs.

http//www.mercywireline.com/derek/graph.jpg is an example of what I'm seeing.

For the device in the jpg there is data cached
Interfaces - Bytes In Value 1.55585 G
Rate of Change 421.86
Time Stamp 2003-10-21 233334

Interfaces - Bytes Out Value 102.6996 M
Rate of Change 129.14
Time Stamp 2003-10-21 233334

I also just noticed that not everything that should have data is getting it collected. Here's another URL to an image showing the multiple graphs for different things and that not all have data.

Judging from the time stamps it looks like the gatherer isn't running correctly out of cron. Could look at your cron log and/or cron config to make sure it is being run? Also... are you using the same user to run netmrg from cron as you are when running it manually? There could be some permissions issues responsible for the RRDs not being updated.

Thanks for posting the screen captures; they are helpful.

Good luck.

Yeah youre right. haha. Right before I checked for new posts I read the mail and it was griping about cron issues. Sorry about the annoyance...and thanks a lot. Also with ping latecy, will that ping an ip on the net or what? I'd like to use it but I'm not sure how it works.

Excellent! I hope that takes care of things.

The ping latency test pings the IP of the device you add the test to.

Cool...Ok with the Ping Latecy test what do I put in for parameters to get it to ping www.swbell.net (151.164.129.2). If that's not where I would put in a command string to ping that IP, where would I? Thanks so much, I really love NetMRG now that it's working. It's the first to actually operate correctly for about four of us using Redhat 9...That's a milestone considering how smart the other three are (I'm the dud in the group D )

The easiest way would be to create a device "www.swbell.net" (even if you're not going to monitor it via SNMP). You could then create a "System" subdevice for it, and add the ping test.

Alternatively, you could edit the ping test, removing the %ip% substitution. You could then use the parameter field (in the monitors) to specify what host you want to ping.

I'm glad things are finally working for you! If you have any suggestions about documentation additions/changes that would have made the process easier, please feel free to let us know!
