Hi Experts -

I have a cacti 0.8.7e and it's working fine. When I added a new remote host (centos) to monitor system utilization, nothing is showing under ucd/net * when I try udner tamplate "Unix *" it started graphing... I have never used unix template before, what is the difference between "ucd/net*" and "Unix *"?

Also, there is no CPU graph...for unix it's only "load on average" any work around?

    Use snmpwalk and see what data is being provided by the remote centos, my guess is that /etc/snmpd.conf has not been configured with a security settings that would provide the data that can be graphed.
