Talk:Monitoring With Cacti
I have done this as well using perl. I also have created a cacti template and a couple other graphs. One graph is the number of concurrent commercial flagging jobs. The other two are counts of the recordings from the database, the number of current recordings and the number of previously recorded show. Unfortunatly there was no efficient way to get this data from the XML server, so I went right to the database.
I have a set of instructions as well as the template and perl script on my website: http://www.e2r4.com/cacti/mythtv/
Perhaps we can combine our efforts here.
Note: you might also what to log directly using RRDTool see some scripts here==> http://martybugs.net/linux/rrdtool/traffic.cgi
