Via the Cacti UI, “Import Templates” and import the Data, Host, and Graph templates. * Included graph templates are not required for functionality.
* Due to the method used by Cacti for creating graphs and the related RRD files, it is my recommendation NOT to create all graphs via the Device Page. If you create all the graphs via the “*Create Graphs for this Host” link on the device page, Cacti will create an individual data source (RRD file and SNMP query for each graph) resulting in a significant amount of wasted Cacti and Device resources. Test yourself with the Stingray SNMP graph.
My recommendation is to create a single initial graph for each Data Query or Data Input method (i.e. one for Virtual Servers and one for Global values) and add any additional graphs via the Cacti’s Graph Management using the existing Data Source Drop downs.

Cacti is sufficient with providing SNMP based RRD graphs, but is limited in Information available, Analytics, Correlation, Scale, Stability and Support.
This is not just a shameless plug; Brocade offers a MUCH more robust set of monitoring and performance tools.
