template.CHANGETHIS.com question

Brand new install of LibreNMS on CentOS 7. This is my first exposure to LibreNMS, though I have used MRTG and RRDTool for ~20 years. So far, really impressed with this software, mainly due to it’s completeness. Kudos to the developers.

On to my issue…

My interface graphs are not being generated. So, after rtfm when starting a ticket, I ran the validate script and got this:

[[email protected] librenms]# ./validate.php

Component Version
LibreNMS 1.59-45-ga2c227b
DB Schema 2020_01_09_1300_migrate_devices_attribs_table (154)
PHP 7.2.24
MySQL 5.5.64-MariaDB
RRDTool 1.4.8


[OK] Composer Version: 1.9.2
[OK] Dependencies up-to-date.
[OK] Database connection
[OK] Database schema correct
[FAIL] The poller (template.CHANGETHIS.com) has not completed within the last 5 minutes, check the cron job.

I have grepped for “template.CHANGETHIS.com” and “CHANGETHIS” in all files in the /opt/librenms and /etc/ directories, and cannot find it. I also searched this help forum, and couldn’t find “CHANGETHIS” anywhere. So, where is this coming from?

BTW, this is an install on CentOS 7, PHP 7.2, apache. I followed the install instructions to the letter (I believe). Did I miss something?


OK, nevermind!!! I found the settings-pollers dialog and deleted the “template.CHANGETHIS.com” poller…
