Color Templates

Color Templates define a list of Colors to be used for Aggregate Graphs in Cacti. As you add Graphs to an Aggregate Graph, you need to distinguish one Graph from the next within the Aggregate Graph. These Color Templates are a list of colors that will be looped through in Round Robin fashion to render the Aggregate Graph.

So, for example, if your Color Template uses 8 differing Colors, and your Aggregate Graph includes 16 Graph Items, then each color will be used twice in the Aggregate Graph.

Below, you can see the four standard Color Templates, you can see that you have the ability to either Delete or Duplicate the Color Templates. As with other Cacti objects, you will not be allowed to Delete a Color Template in use.
