Check Basic Data Gathering

For scripts, run them as cactiuser from cli to check basic functionality. E.g. for a perl script named with parameters "p1 p2" under *nix this would look like:

su - cactiuser
/full/path/to/perl p1 p2
... (check output)

For snmp, snmpget the _exact_ OID you're asking for, using same community string and snmp version as defined within cacti. For an OID of ., community string of very-secret and version 2 for target host target-host this would look like

snmpget -c very-secret -v 2c target-host .
.... (check output)
