Networking: SNMP Support for Servers Behind Astaro
We have several sites where we use cacti to monitor servers behind the UTM.
We can use Cacti to monitor the UTM, but if we want to monitor "sub-servers" we need to setup a VPN. That creates a lot of extra work for the amount of sites we would need to setup VPN connections for.
I'd love to see an extra screen/tab on the UTM where I can add the community details for these "sub-servers" and then just point cacti to the UTM, and give it the community name of the "sub-server", and then report that way.
While this idea is interesting, it will not be considered for implementation at this time.
I don't know that Cacti even would support this.
Setup a VPN, or take a look at a more distributed system such as ZenOSS or Zabbix, using multiple 'distributed collectors'.

I have over 100 servers on the inside, (not counting printers, and pc's and other devices) are you suggesting I set a different DNAT for every server on the inside..
Audrius Blaževičius commented
VPN? Jesus, have you guys tried using DNAT to forward? Something like: ports 98 and 99 point to snmp at your sub-severs. Choose any available port.
I like this idea. We use cacti too.
I also use zabbix and this would be good.

This I definitely want. Please, please, please.. :-)

This would be good.
I agree with both comments, this will make it easier for me to monitor complete sites, with minimal setup.
We alsi use cacti, great program.

We use zabbix and have the same issue. Setting up multiple vpn's takes too much time.
