So I just set up ganglia on a single debian node. It followed a pretty simple process of
1 - installed from stable repo using
apt-get install ganglia-monitor gmetad apt-get install ganglia-webfrontend
2 - configured using using: https://www.digitalocean.com/community/tutorials/introduction-to-ganglia-on-ubuntu-14-04#installation
Now I have everything running and I can access it on localhost/ganglia and it shows the grid memory, network, and load but not CPU. The CPU total is 0, hosts up and down are 0 and there is no avg load or utilization.
Just to be clear this is debian wheezy, I am only running it on a single node that is running both gmetad and gmond so thus reporting to itself. Is there further setup I need to do or does anyone know what could be the cause of this problem and lack of information?
