Not that we have been using ZFS (using OI + Napp-It) on a regular basis, we need to be able to produce at least some usage history. Having used Cacti in the past, it seemed like a quick and easy option.

NET-SNMP was installed by default on Open Indiana, a quick edit of the snmpd.conf and an enable did the trick:

vi /etc/net-snmp/snmp/snmpd.conf
svcadm enable net-snmp

If you make any changes, use the restart command:

svcadm restart net-snmp

That’s it!

    Im sorry im slow I am trying to follow cacti’s instruction for installing Cacti but cannot get it to work. Did you have a step by step guide?

    I don’t have an actual guide for the cacti install myself, but there are plenty that exist. You’ll need to search for your particular Operating System.

    RH/CentOS is an easy one to find plenty of information for:
