gmond is configured with multicast

when gmond is configured with multicast and bind_hostname as below:

udp_send_channel {
    mcast_join    =
    bind_hostname = yes
    port          = 8640

you should specify mcast_join ip address to host and set bind__hostname true:

<match metrics>
  type          ganglia
  port          8649
  group         metric_group
  name_keys     metrics.field1,metrics.field2
  bind_hostname true

gmond is configured with unicast

when gmond is configured with unicast, you should specify host and port with same value of gmond.conf:

<match metrics>
  type              ganglia
  port              8649
  group             metric_group
  name_key_pattern  ^field
