CSV Export in Cacti is not working

Sometimes it may happen that the CSV export from a Cacti graph is not working for large date ranges. You then may see an error 500 being returned by the browser. If this happens, you should try increasing the memory limit of your php instance.

This can be achieved by editing the php.ini file and changing the following line:

memory_limit = 64M ; Maximum amount of memory a script may consume

Try settings this to 256M:

memory_limit = 256M ; Maximum amount of memory a script may consume

and restart your webserver. On CentOS you can use the following command:

/etc/init.d/httpd reload

Install VMWare Perl SDK

This post will show you how to install the VMWare Perl SDK on CentOs 6 and CentOs 7

CentOs 6 / SDK Version 5.1

The following commands will install all necessary perl modules on a Centos 6 system required for the SDK .

rpm -Uvh http://download.fedoraproject.org/pub/epel/6/i386/epel-release-6-7.noarch.rpm
yum install gcc perl-CPAN perl-Archive-Zip perl-Class-MethodMaker perl-SOAP-Lite perl-XML-SAX perl-Crypt-SSLeay
yum install perl-XML-NamespaceSupport perl-XML-LibXML perl-Data-Dump uuid-perl libuuid-devel uuid-devel
wget --directory-prefix=/tmp http://search.cpan.org/CPAN/authors/id/J/JN/JNH/UUID-0.04.tar.gz
tar -zxvf /tmp/UUID-0.04.tar.gz -C /tmp
cd /tmp/UUID-0.04
perl Makefile.PL
make install

CentOs 7 / SDK Version 6.0.2

We’re going to install version 6.0.2. You should have downloaded the required file to the /tmp directory already. The following section will show you of installing the required modules. The actual install will ask you to accept the license terms and choose an install directory. It will also ask you for the permission to install the pre-built binary files for the required perl modules. You can accept all the default settings.

yum -y install openssl-devel 
cd /tmp
tar -xzvf VMware-vSpehere-Perl-SDK-6.0.0-3561779.x86_64.tar.gz
