 +===== Host Templates =====
 +To create a new host template in Cacti, select the Host Templates option under the Templates heading. Once on that screen, click Add on the right. Type a unique name for the host template and click the Create button. You will be redirected back to the edit page with the Associated Graph Templates and Associated Data Queries boxes. These two boxes allow you to associate certain graph templates or data queries with the host template. Simply select something from the dropdown menu and click Add to associate it with your host template.

 +
 +and fill in the name of this new Template:
 +
 +{{:manual:088:host-template-new.png|Host Template New}}
 +
 +Now you'll find two sections added. First, let's deal with **Associated Graph Templates**. The **Add Graph template** select box holds all defined Graph Templates. Select the one we've just created
 +
 +{{:manual:088:host-template-new-gt.png|Host Template New Graph Template}}
 +
 +and **Add** it:
 +
 +{{:manual:088:host-template-new-gts.png|Host Template New Graph Template Added}}
 +
 +Next, let's add the Data Query already selected above:
