An Open Source software that automatically collects system information every 10 seconds
Thanks to its numerous plugins, collectd gathers data about CPU load, RAM usage, disk usage, as well as network interface usage and DNS traffic. It resides in the memory and uses the /proc-filesystem for reading the information.
Among its features, we can mention SNMP integration for querying network equipment, as well as a powerful network code that can be used to collect statistics for complete system setups.

What's New in This Release:
- collectd: The LoadPlugin config option no longer attempts to load plugins twice. If more than one LoadPlugin statement or block is encountered, only the first will have any effect.
- collectd: The AutoLoadPlugin option allows to automatically load plugins for which a configuration is found.
- collectd: The WriteQueueLimitHigh and WriteQueueLimitLow options allow collectd to drop values when under stress, to avoid running out of memory. Thanks to Yves Mettier for his patch.
- AMQP plugin: The GraphiteSeparateInstances and GraphiteAlwaysAppendDS options have been added. Thanks to Laurent for the patch.
