Reapply Suggested Names to Graphs

For a general understanding of suggested names used with data queries, please see Associated Graph Templates. Be aware, that changes to the Suggested Names section of a data query will not automatically be propagated to all existing graphs. This is, where poller_graphs_reapply_names.php drops in. Calling the script with the parameter –help yields

shell>php -q poller_graphs_reapply_names.php --help
Cacti Reapply Graph Names Script 1.0, Copyright 2007 - The Cacti Group

usage: poller_graphs_reapply_names.php -id=[host_id|All][host_id1|host_id2|...] [-s=[search_string] [-d] [-h] [--help] [-v] [--version]

-id=host_id   - The host_id or 'All' or a pipe delimited list of host_id's
-s=search_str - A graph template name or graph title to search for
-d            - Display verbose output during execution
-v --version  - Display this help message
-h --help     - Display this help message

Assume a situation, where the suggested names where changed for the standard data query named SNMP - Get Mounted Partitions. In this case, you will want to rework all graphs for this data query only. A verbose run will yield

shell>php -q poller_graphs_reapply_names.php -id=All -d -s="Used space"

Please notice my miss-spelling of the word “Space”. The -s= option is not case sensitive.
