 +===== Prerequisites =====
 +This plugin requires the Autom8 plugin to be installed and activated. The Thold plugin, of which the versions 0.4.9 and 0.5.0 are compatible, needs to be installed too. 
 +This plugin is tested with Cacti 0.8.8a and PIA 3.1 but it should also work on older versions. 
 +This plugin contains patches for Autom8 v0.35, older versions of the plugin will need different patches and might not work with this plugin.
 +===== Installation =====
 +  - Untar contents to the Cacti plugins directory
 +  - Apply following [[userplugin:autom8thold#patches]]
 +  - Install and Activate from Cacti UI
 +===== Patches =====
 +In order to get this plugin running, applying patches to the plugin Autom8 is required.
 +Run following command from plugins directory:
 +<code bash>
 +patch --dry-run -d autom8/ < autom8thold/autom8_v035.patch
 +If everything looks ok, you can omit the %%--dry-run%% option and run the command again to actually do the patches.
 +**Note:**  The patch autom8_v035.patch might warn you about reverting patches if you have done this patch already for the plugin [[userplugin:autom8reportit]]. In this case, you can ignore this patch as it is already done.
