Issue grooming session

  1. ntpd plugin: private mode (7) is now deprecated #932
    • NTPd deprecated "mode 7" which is no longer enabled server side by default.
    • Recommendation is to use "mode 6", which is standardized.
    • "mode 6" is human readable, so parser needs to be rewritten.
    → flaged as bug (was feature request), left open, low priority
  2. Feature Request: need for self monitoring plugin (collectd getting metrics from itself) #849
    • Provide metrics about collectd's own operation
    • Nice to have.
    • FR has been open for ~5 years without movement.
    → Pinged the issue and set the "Waiting for response – 1st time" label.
  3. nginx plugin: support several instances #780
    • Offer to review a PR was not picked up in ~4 years.
    → Closed due to inactivity
  4. curl enhancement #614
