Input plugin: collectd #992
+1, it would be great to have such an option available natively !
collectd/collectd#696 also discusses what would be the best way to send collectd metrics to influxdb.
What is nice with your work @kimor79 is that people running old collectd versions can just add a couple of lines to their configuration to start shipping data to influxdb. No need to patch/upgrade/rebuild collectd on those legacy systems.
not sure, but FWIW in one of my other OSS projects if add-on packages become too much of a burden and no one fixes it within a reasonable time we just drop it until somebody steps up and puts things in good shape. It's just a matter of being upfront and clear about it. Granted said other project is a linux distro where packages come and go all the time, so it's a thing that people get used to. This case is a bit different.
