Getting data from system collections #8

I've been trying out this plugin and it's great!
I'd like to get data from a system.profile collection in order to create an operation analysis dashboard in Kibana.
When I try to do that, logstash gives me this message:
D, [2015-08-16T12:17:14.914000 #30642] DEBUG -- : MONGODB | COMMAND | namespace=collection1.$cmd selector={:listCollections=>1, :cursor=>{}, :filter=>{:name=>{"$not"=>/system.|$/}}} flags=[] limit=-1 skip=0 project=nil | runtime: 32.0001ms

So system collections are filtered out. The code responsible for that is in the ruby mongo driver:

Is there any way to get around that in your plugin?

@RoeiA I haven't had much of a chance to take a stab at this. Do you have any ideas on the best way we could accomplish this? I'd be glad to look at a merge request and help you work through it.
