Purpose

Many users of Cacti require access to the log, but should not be allowed to erase it. This plugin allows administrators the ability to share the log and it's powerfull regex functionality without exposing it to deletion.

Features

Allows users to see, and not purge log

Allows Cacti administrators to hide sensitive information from users

Prerequisites

Cacti PIA 2.x

Installation

Simply place in the plugins directory and install like any other PIA 2.x plugin.

Usage

The Cacti Log plugin for Cacti has two operational modes. The first operational mode allows Cacti Administrators to view the Cacti Log tab identically to the System Management menu pick. The second mode allows Cacti Administrators to grant read only access to the Log file for normal users.

The Cacti Administrator also has the ability to limit what a normal user can and can not see from the Cacti Log tab. If for example, the Cacti Administrator does not want the normal user to view login events, those events can be disabled from the Clog Settings page (Settings → Misc). The rule system uses a Regular Expression match to limit the view for the normal user.
