Any chance you could highlight the differences so I can figure out how to apply them for the PA20XX series?

I've got the templates previously made available, but they don't do the session tables, the temperature, or the data plane utilisation properly - I obviously need to fix them, but I'm not sure where to go to do it.



finally you get working the PA20XX series cacti graphs?

I had to modify the PA50XX series templates to be able to graph correctly with PAN-OS version 4.1

But actually, i don't have on mind to do the same with the PA20XX series.


I was asking if you could point out what you had to do to make it work on the PA5000, not do it for me.

I don't know Cacti well enough to know where to dig into those templates to fix the issues I'm experiencing.

Can you tell me what you had to change to make this work with the PA5000, so I can try and fix the PA2000 appropriately?

I keep running into this error in Cacti when trying to import the template.

CMDPHP: Poller[0] parse_xml_hash ERROR wrong hash format

Any ideas? I'm using Cacti 0.8.8a, and I've tried replacing the hash value with the same result.
