Purpose

A completely re-written version of the original H.aloe plugin, which allows you to view syslog messages stored in a database. There are too many new features in this release to document here. You must test out the new version to completely comprehend.

Features

  • HTML, Text and SMS Text Alarms
  • Complex Alarm Rules
  • Message filtering and search Capabilities
  • CSV Export of Both Messages and Alarms
  • TimeSpan Selector for Messages
  • Ability to View Syslog Messages in Range from Graphs
  • Syslog Message Removal (for Events you don't want to see)
  • Supports Native MySQL 5.1.x Database Partitioning for Large Systems

Prerequisites

You must either install syslog-ng or rsyslog binary packages for this plugin to properly operate. In addition, the Cacti Settings plugin is required.

Installation

Follow the Syslog Configuration documentation prior to installing the syslog plugin

Install just like any other plugin, just throw it in the plugin directory, in a folder called syslog. Edit your includes/config.php and add it to your $plugins list, and you are rolling.
