Visual Settings

Overview

Cacti's Visual settings page is where you can go to globally control the behavior of Cacti's GUI. Settings like the default Theme, the maximum allowed size of a Graph Title, auto-complete settings, as well as a myriad of other settings can be found here.

The Visual page is broken down into several sub-sections. We will cover them and the meaning of the various settings here.

NOTE: This is a popular page for Plugin developers to augment. Therefore, if you have installed Plugins, your Settings page may look different than the default page.

Theme, Table, Tree, and Filter Settings

The image below shows the default layout for these sub-sections.

NOTE: The RRDtool Watermark control requires a recent version of RRDtool, such as the 1.7 release. If you attempt to use this setting and your Graphs break, then upgrade RRDtool.

Font Selection Options

The image below shows the available Font Selection options when you override the Theme settings.

Font Selection Options

The sizes are in pixels, and the Font Settings can either be a True Type Font file path, or a valid Pango font-config value. For more information on Pango font-config values, see your operating systems documentation. However, you can normally see all the fonts installed on your Linux system by issuing the following command fc-list.
