Show Configuration on Juniper simplistic view

On Juniper devices usually you issue  “show configuration” which displays the configuration file how the device is configured as per below:

root@alcatron-switch> show configuration
## Last commit: 2013-01-11 14:14:58 UTC by root
version 11.4R1.6;
system {
    host-name alcatron-switch;
    root-authentication {
        encrypted-password “$1$GJroMRrQ$.UkiU”; ## SECRET-DATA
    syslog {
        user * {
            any emergency;
        file messages {
            any notice;
            authorization info;
        file interactive-commands {
            interactive-commands any;

This is completely different compared to the cisco equivalent, to make things easier in a simplistic view similar to cisco simply issue “show configuration | display set” and voila everything is set out much neater and easy to copy and paste.

root@alcatron-switch> show configuration | display set
set version 11.4R1.6
set system host-name alcatron-switch
set system root-authentication encrypted-password “$1$GJroMRrQ$.UkiU”
set system services
set system syslog user * any emergency
set system syslog file messages any notice
set system syslog file messages authorization info
set system syslog file interactive-commands interactive-commands any

CactiEZ v0.7

It appears CactiEZ v0.7 is released, as i’ve been doing some research online. CactiEZ v0.7 is the new update. This update includes as per the website:

  • OS is CentOS 6 x64 (there is no 32bit version)
  • Now prompts for a few key items during the installation such as Network info, timezone, and password
  • More secure out of the box than the previous builds (some linux hardening, randomized mysql passwords, etc…)
  • PHP Timezone is automatically configured for the timezone entered during install
  • Cacti and all plugins are now installed via RPMs from my custom repository for easy updating of Cacti
  • Switched to RSyslog instead of Syslog-ng
  • NTop removed
  • Now includes a custom setup plugin that walks you through setting up your Cacti server (plugin installs, templates, etc…)
  • Custom jquery based theme donated by an anonymous source (Thanks!)
  • No upgrade path from CactiEZ v0.6 provided

I have mirrored CactiEZ v0.7 on my website for your pleasure and it can be downloaded from the downloads section or simply by clicking here.
