List of Plugins

The NTPd plugin queries an NTP server (usually the local one, where statistics access is allowed) and extracts :

  • "local" clock parameters :
    • time offset
    • error and offset loop
  • parameters for each NTP server used to sync time
    • offset
    • dispersion
    • delay

Details of the configuration can be found in the collectd.conf(5) manual page.
