But we have a ReadyNAS at most of our sites, so why not get the temperature data and graph that? Good idea, right? Yep, in theory. If I ever get the chance, I'd like to ask the authors of the ReadyNAS MIB why they thought that returning temperature data as a String containing both Celcuis and Fahrenheit data was A Good Idea. For some funny reason, Cacti isn't that keen on numbers that look like this: "32.0C/89.6F"
Oh well, nice try. There is a neato solution for this on the cacti forums, but:
- it requires a more recent Cacti than we have
- it requires a more recent ReadyNAS firmware than we have
