[rrd-users] rough day trying to set up rrdtool/cricket

[I apologize for hitting both lists, but I'm not exactly sure which tool does
the snmp chatter. -- Rob ]
After fighting perl modules, BerkeleyDB, and the lack of caffeine all day
yesterday, I still haven't gotten rrdtool/cricket to behave.
perl 5.004001 (upgrading to 5.004_004 would take some effort since
perl is deeply rooted in our environment)
latest required perl modules as of yesterday
I was following the steps in cricket's doc/beginner.txt...
First up, I have to put the FQDN in the config file. This is more annoying
than 'broken', but I'd rather not have to do that.
Secondly, where can I hardcode the 'home directory' for cricket so that I
don't have to create a new user? I'm currently running mrtg as myself and I
really don't want to create *yet* *another* application-specific account on
our systems. (My temporary fix is by doing "HOME=/foo ../compile") This is
probably a simple thing to chase down, but I haven't had a chance to do it yet
and figured that I would ask while I'm here.
Thirdly (and most importantly), I get the following, regardless of whether I
point it at a solaris box (yeah, I know Solaris 2.6 smpdx is less than
optimum) or either of our two NetApps:
[20-Jul-1999 17:55:18*] Received SNMP response with error code noSuchName
[20-Jul-1999 17:55:18 ] Got:
[20-Jul-1999 17:55:18 ] Retrieved data for na1.bbg.adc.com (): U,U,U,U
Thanks in advance.
obtw, 'hi' to fellow former-Synopsys-ites.
