An output plugin for collectd.
NOTE This work has been merged into collectd as of version 5.1. I strongly suggest using the native client, as octo has done great things with it and I no longer plan on maintaining this code. Thanks!
First, modify the variables at the top of the Makefile to fit your system. (I use FreeBSD.) Then continue making the project as usual. During the initial make, collectd will be downloaded and configured to provide the neccesary libtool script.
$ git clone firstname.lastname@example.org:jssjr/collectd-write_graphite.git $ cd collectd-write_graphite $ make $ sudo make install
Enable the plugin in collectd.conf by adding:
Configure the plugin to match your carbon configuration.
<Plugin write_graphite> <Carbon> Host "localhost" Port "2003" Prefix "collectd." </Carbon> </Plugin>
Restart collectd to load the new plugin.
The hostname of the Carbon collection agent.
The port used by the Carbon collect agent.
The prefix string prepended to the hostname that is sent to Carbon. Use dots (.) to create folders. A good choise might be "collectd." or "servers."
The postfix string appended to the hostname sent to Carbon.
The character used to replace dots (.) in a hostname or datasource name. Defaults to an underscore.
