collectd_graphite - Send measurement data from collectd to graphite

Graphite is a real-time graphing package that incorporates a fast backend for storing numeric measurements and a server for reading measurements.

Collectd is a system monitoring package that measures many things.

collectd_graphite is a very simple python plugin for collectd that transmits data from collectd to a graphite server.


Install the collectd_graphite python package:

$ python install

Import it in the collectd configuration file. For example:

<LoadPlugin python>
  Globals true

<Plugin python>
  Encoding utf-8
  LogTraces true
  Interactive false
  Import "collectd_graphite"

  <Module collectd_graphite>
      TypesDB "/usr/local/share/collectd/types.db"
