collectd + tags

Overview

The collectd Check allows you to run collectd in combination with the write_tsdb plugin to submit tagged metrics directly to Circonus.

collectd is a daemon that periodically collects system and application performance metrics through its extensive plugin library.

Configuration

Provided metrics depend on what is submitted by the underlying collectd daemon, and how it’s configured.

This Check requires the write_tsdb plugin be used in combination with collectd.

For additional instructions in using collectd to submit metrics to Circonus, see the collectd documentation.
