JumpBox for Cacti, the network graphing system.
Cacti is a complete network graphing solution designed to harness the power of RRDTool's data storage and graphing functionality. Cacti provides a fast poller, advanced graph templating, multiple data acquisition methods, and user management features out of the box. All of this is wrapped in an intuitive, easy to use interface that makes sense for LAN-sized installations up to complex networks with hundreds of devices.
JumpBox didn't develop Cacti, we just make it easier to use by packaging it with the JumpBox Runtime.
What is a JumpBox
JumpBoxes are virtual computers that make installing and managing server based software dramatically easier. All that's required is one of our supported virtualization platforms and you can have a server based application running in minutes on Mac OS X, Windows or Linux. This provides considerable time savings over manual installation while also being very easy.
The applications we distribute are created by a broad array of developers and solve many different problems. JumpBox doesn't develop the applications, we simply package them in a clean, simple and easy to use format. This JumpBox bundles the Open Source application Cacti.
