PDF report from Cacti 0.87e


Hi team
I have installed Cacti 0.87e in fedora 11. And it is working fine. But as per our organizational requirement, they want report as pdf format. I have installed nmidcreate pdf also for the same. It generates the report in pdf format but the content of the pdf is blank i.e. it does not contain any graph or value in the report. It shows only header and footer information, nothing more than that. Kindly resolve this issue, either using the above mentioned plugin or other else. Because this is an urgent requirement. I am waiting for your affirmative response.

Thanks & Regards
Arghya

This is not urgent for ANYONE here...since this is a requirement for your organization, then it's only urgent for YOU. Don't tell us to hurry up...we volunteer our time here, and answer when we can (or feel like).

And since it's **URGENT**, did you bother to Google for it, or check the Cacti forums???

You should post these questions to the Cacti forums. I normally do not browse all available internet forums to give support.

The report stays blank, as you probably did not download the required parallelGraphRetriever tool. Check the Projekt page for the missing file as well as a User and QuickInstall guide.

ok, can you send me the output of "ls -l" from the nmidCreatePDF directory to support@nmid-plugins.de ?

Also you should enable error logging for php. Look in your php.ini file for a line for the error_log and either send errors to syslog or a separate file. It should help with identifying the issue.

You can also check the support page. There should be a link in the Console->NMID section for that one.

Although the post is 5 years old, it's still valid and the old page still gets links from this post. So here are the updated links:

nmidCreatePDF has been renamed to CereusReporting. There's still a free-to-use version with more or less the same features as nmidCreatePDF had.
It's supported from Cacti 0.8.7g up to the latest Cacti version ( 0.8.8h as of July 2016 )

Project/Plugin Page is now at https://www.urban-software.com/produ...rts-for-cacti/
The latest files can be downloaded here: https://www.urban-software.com/produ.../cr-downloads/

There's also an install guide on that page for Centos and Ubuntu.


Always make sure to check the "Debug Info" page which shows up after installing the plugin. It will point out some permission issues and missing php modules as well as configuration issues.
