Graph Titles Including ifAlias

Change the graph template

(You either have to manually do this before you create your graphs, or you get to edit your graph definitions manually after the fact.)

console -> Data Queries -> SNMP Interface Statistics -> Associated Graph Templates -> I/O Bits -> Suggested Values :

Several formats are listed there , change their order with the up/down arrows . Or create a new one with your desired params in it and move it to the top of the list

Mine Looks Like This:

title |host_description| - Traffic - |query_ifName| - |query_ifAlias|

Then you can re-apply the template to the existing graphs:

# cd ~cacti/cli
# php poller_graphs_reapply_names.php -id=All
Instead of =All you can just apply the templates to devices if you know the device ID.
# cd ~cacti/cli
# php poller_graphs_reapply_names.php -id=5

To regenerate labels from updated switch information:

There's a php script in the main directory to do so (poller_reindex_hosts.php). But it's VERY time consuming. You may run it on a per host basis.

Reason # 443 why 3Com Sucks

3Com Port Labels are not read as ifAliases. Boo.

This is a collection of techical information, much of it learned the hard way. Consider it a lab book or a /info directory. I doubt much of it will be of use to anyone else.
