Configure plugins for the collectd monitoring daemon.
This cookbook has only been tested on Ubuntu 10.04.
A number of recipes for standard plugins are available:
Output to RRD database files.
Log errors to syslog.
Free space on disks.
Disk I/O operations.
Network I/O operations.
Swap file usage.
It is recommended to always enable the first two (rrdtool and syslog), but the others are entirely optional. For convenience, the collectd_plugins default recipe will include all of these.
A plugin to monitor Redis is included as collectd_plugins::redis. This recipe requires that you be using our redis cookbook for your servers, but can be trivially modified to look for a different recipe or role name.
