Cacti SNMP v3 How-To (0.2)
This document is intended to describe the process required to enable encrypted snmp polling within cacti. The document was written whilst performing the installation on a Linux Fedora Core 3 server, although implemntations on Fedora Core 1 & White Box Enterprise Linux have also been sucesful. The host used to gather data from for the purpose of this document is a Nokia IPSO appliance.
The version of cacti used will be 0.8.6b, "TheWitness" has told me that this version has a pooler crash, but I've yet to try upgrading to 8.8.6c.
Apache, php, mysql, snmp, rrd-tool, and cacti ;-)
