Pre-requisites

We have determined that this template may only support ACRC500 units out-of-the-box. Other models of InRow units may not work immediately. It appears that APC uses different OID structures for each model of InRow unit. I cannot explain why they would opt to do this. Follow through the discussion on the forum post: Host Template for APC InfraStruXure InRow CRAC Units

Several individuals have successfully modified the template to work with different units. Ideally, I would have developed this template to handle any unit - this would have required the use of script queries instead of snmp queries. Seeing as I don't have access to any other InRow units, I likely won't be able to make any modifications to support the full line of InRow products.

Installation

Place the inrow_group.xml and inrow_unit.xml files in <path_cacti>/resource/snmp_queries/. Then import the host template XML file into your Cacti installation using the 'Import Templates' function. Here is what to expect upon a successful import:

Data Query
[success] APC - InRow - Group Statistics [update]
[success] APC - InRow - Unit Statistics [update]

Host Template
[success] APC InfraStruXure InRow CRAC [update]

To create a new InRow host, follow the same procedure as normal and select 'APC InfraStruXure InRow CRAC' as the selected host template. There are two data queries available, 'APC - InRow - Group Statistics' and 'APC - InRow - Unit Statistics'. If you have multiple InRow units (and you generally will!) working in a HACS or CACS group you should not need to create Group Statistics graphs for every unit in that group. My recommendation is to generate these graphs for two units, mainly for redundancy. The values will be identical. Every InRow unit should have the 'Unit Statistics' graphs created, in addition to the static Graph Templates.
