  cacti_data_template_hnas_filesystem_space.xml
  
  cacti_graph_template_snmp_-_hnas_filesystem_information.xml

  • CPU monitoring:

  cacti_graph_template_snmp_-_hnas_cpu_utilization.xml

USE

  • Activate SNMP on your BlueArc device.
  • On cacti: create a “Generic SNMP-enabled Host” device, and just add the:
    • SNMP - HNAS CPU Utilization” Graph Template
    • SNMP - Get HNAS Filesystem Information” Data Query
  • On “Create Graphs for this Host”, select “SNMP - HNAS CPU Utilization” and the appropriate Filesystems you want to graph.

NOTES

NOTE 1: space is reversed: occupation (red) grows down.

This is because snmp does not tell occupied space, but free and total space.

NOTE 2: cacti “ucd/net *” templates will not graph anything on these devices.

NOTE 3: default cacti templates also allows for some network monitoring.

Screenshots

This graph has been obtained using aggregate plugin on all the NAS filesystems:
