Purpose

This plugin allows you to automatically view the Cacti graphs one by one after a specified time delay.

Features

  • Can set permissions on who can view.
  • Graph height and width can be specified.
  • Graphs are not displayed if the user does not have access to them.
  • Title of graph is displayed, font face, size and color can be changed.
  • You can use the Prev/Next buttons to change graph.
  • You can stop the rotation with the Stop button.
  • The time until the next graph change is displayed under the title.
  • It can use a custom graph list and only cycle through those.

Possible Bugs?

The custom graph rotation is very simple and does not check for permissions.

I am waiting for cigamit to add support for adding items to the edit graph pages so I can get it working fully.

Future Changes

Improve the way custom graphs are setup

Cycle through Weathermaps (I need to look into how Weathermap works)

Got any ideas then please let me know.
