Cacti Mirage Add-On for Splunk: Why are no hosts being reported?

Builder

Hi i have installed the Cacti Mirage Add-On for Splunk on my lab instance which is Search Head and indexer in one.
Cacti is installed in /var/www/html/cacti-1.0.1/
I have installed the Universal Forwarder on cacti and am seeing data for the following sourcetypes coming in to my index called cacti:

cacti:mirage
cacti:system
cacti:lookup:mirage

However some of the reports are missing data - i think because my lookup table is not being populated.

Looking at the search for Cacti Polling & Lookups Status the search is driven by:

eventtype=cacti:mirage | timechart span=5m count by host

In the eventtypes.conf i have:

[cacti:mirage]
search = `cacti_index` sourcetype=cacti:mirage

and if i run

`cacti_index` sourcetype=cacti:mirage 

then that works fine but then if i run:

eventtype=cacti:mirage

i see no results

Any idea why?

Thanks.

Hey Eksy73!

Sorry for the inconvenience! I believe the issue is the use of the macro in the eventtype, which broke somewhere along the upgrade path since we released the app in 6.3

I will make sure to update the app on Splunkbase, in the meantime, try updating the eventtype to :

[splunker@n00bserver local]$ cat eventtypes.conf 
[cacti:mirage]
search = index=cacti sourcetype=cacti:mirage

[cacti:lookup:mirage]
search = index=cacti sourcetype=cacti:lookup:mirage
[splunker@n00bserver local]$ 

The macro was only thrown in to let users set their own index, but at this point we will just take it out and ensure the users either use index=cacti or configure the eventtype accordingly.

Let me know if that solves it for you

Thanks!

Matt

Hi,

Using 6.5.2

Thanks for that - there were a few other broken searches - but you got me on the right track and all's looking good. Thanks a lot.
