Awesome, logstash 1.3 comes with support for consuming +collectd metrics!

Probably a stupid question, but is there any way to make collectd send stats as rates (e.g. CPU utilization)? There is a nice StoreRates parameter for the CSV plugin which gives me the exact output I want, but I didn't find anything similar for the network plugin (or cpu plugin). Spend few hours googling, and it seems that no one has this problem but me. :-(

Should I somehow do it with chains? Thanks in advance to whoever decides to answer. (asking in this thread because I'm trying to make it work with new logstash collectd plugin, so old visualization tools that probably can get rates from values on their own are unavailable in Logstash's Kibana dashboard)

Put some +collectd hackers into a room, supply them with coffee and internet and they may start being creative. And then +Pierre-Yves Ritschard ends up embedding Riemann into collectd. How I love free software!

Talk about +collectd, Riemann and Graphite by +Dave Cottlehuber. For those not yet in on the open secret: The combination of collectd for metric collection, Riemann for correlation and fault detection and Graphite for storage is an awesome combination, or so I hear :)

Does Riemann do event correlation? Haven't been able to find a convincing example

I'm proud to announce that +collectd 5.4.0 has been released. This version contains a lot of new features, including six new plugins: Aquaero, cgroups, LVM, MIC, sigrok and StatsD.

Also new: the AutoLoadPlugin feature makes loading plugins more convenient: If a configuration block is found, the plugin is loaded automatically.

Grab the tarball from our website!

I did some profiling, improving and measuring of my #StatsD plugin for #collectd the other day, you may have seen my traffic generator fly past. After some tweaks, the plugin maxed out at approximately 440k metrics per second.

Further speedup would require adding parallel access to the lookup structure. It's an interesting problem, but I wonder how much use it would be in real live. What are typical loads of StatsD traffic?

I've just packaged and uploaded #collectd 5.3.1. This patch release includes a number of bug fixes, most notably a memory leak in the new Write Riemann plugin that was fixed.

I've written a StatsD plugin which implements the #StatsD network protocol and dispatches the metrics via #collectd. Hope you like it :)

I have some data from collectd sitting in mongodb. I'm using pentaho with groovy scripting to retrieve data. Problem is data values are stored as strings and surrounded with [ ]. How can I strip these and make the values integers.

Did you look into https://collectd.org/wiki/index.php/First_steps and the other wiki pages?

Didn't look into it yet but wanted to share with fellow collectdlers anyway ;-)
 
Just published a small library wrapping the collectd plain text protocol. No idea if it's of any use to anyone, but it's there.

The new release of GitHub Enterprise, GitHub's appliance product, includes +collectd to collect and provide performance metrics. Thanks to +Fabien Wernli for pointing this out!

Blog post by +Evernote on how they use #Graphite and #collectd . They say that they needed to make some changed to collectd to fit their purpose but unfortunately don't go into detail. The Write Graphite plugin seems to fit their needs, though :)

I'm in the process of packaging collectd 5.4. The community has been very busy these last four months and there are tons of new stuff: the new LVM, StatsD, sigrok, cgroups and aquaero plugins, support for Intel's Xeon Phi, UDP support for Graphite, the "AutoLoadPlugins" option … And I'm not yet done compiling the changelog entry ;)

+Louis Opter created a Docker image that makes it easy to roll out +collectd and Graphite in an LXC container. Containers seem to be the new hotness nowadays ;)
