Hi Paul,

I've confirmed that cacti continues to work with "--define suhosin.memory_limit=512M" specified and php5-suhosin uninstalled. There seems to be no negative impact on having it specified when not using suhosin.

However, I've determined that for all error messages to disappear, you must make three changes:

- Set memory_limit to a reasonable value (like 128M) in /etc/php5/cli/php.ini, it cannot be "-1".
- Modify /etc/cron.d/cacti to look like this:
"*/1 * * * * www-data php --define suhosin.memory_limit=512M /usr/share/cacti/site/poller.php >/dev/null 2>/var/log/cacti/poller-error.log"
- and modify /usr/share/cacti/site/poller.php, line 297 to look like this:
"$extra_args     = "-q --define suhosin.memory_limit=512M \"" . $config["base_path"] . "/cmd.php\"";"

Sorry for not responding for such a long time.

Question, does this "--define suhosin.memory_limit=512M" also work if
php5-suhosin is not installed? I.e. does it break systems that don't use it?
