We're proud to announce that collectd 5.5.0
has been released. This version comes packed with new features. Here's merely a short summary, for the full list see https://collectd.org/wiki/index.php/Version_5.5
– you can download the tarballs from https://collectd.org/download.shtml
New plugins allow collectd
to read metrics form #Ceph
(both distributed file systems), #OpenLDAP
and Apache #Zookeeper
. On the hardware side, there are new plugins for reading barometers, #SMART
data from hard drives and C-states (idle states) from Intel CPUs. From the operating system we now get information on file handles and shared memory.
Integration with other systems has also been improved, there are new plugins to write collectd
metrics to Apache #Kafka
, a distributed message queue, #Sensu
, a popular monitoring solution, and #OpenTSDB
, a distributed timeseries database.
Of course, many existing plugins have been extended, too. For example, CPU usage can finally be reported as a percentage, rather than jiffies. This was one of our most-requested features.
Huge thanks to all of our contributors – you are awesome!
