Spine needs to be compiled before it can be used. If you found a binary package of
Spine for your operating system, you can skip the next step about compiling Spine.
Setting Up Spine
Once Spine is installed on your system, you must perform the following steps to make your
Cacti installation aware of it.
Login to Cacti as an admin user.
Select Settings on the menu and click the Paths tab.
Enter the complete path to your Spine binary in the Spine Poller File Path field and click Save.
Click the Poller tab.
Choose "spine" from the Poller Type dropdown box and click Save.
After completing these steps, Cacti will spawn Spine every 5 minutes instead of cmd.php. If you
are having problems getting Spine to gather data, you can always temporarily change Poller Type
back to "cmd.php".
