List of Plugins

The DPDK telemetry plugin collects interface, application and global statistics. It is used as a replacement for the dpdkstat plugin from the DPDK 19.08.

The plugin retrieves metrics from a DPDK packet forwarding application by sending the JSON formatted message via a UNIX domain socket. The DPDK telemetry component will respond with a JSON formatted reply, delivering the requested metrics. The plugin parses the JSON data, and publishes the metric values to collectd for further use.

Configuration options are documented in the collectd-dpdk_telemetry(5) manual page.
