List of Plugins

The SysLog plugin receives log messages from the daemon and dispatches them to syslog(3). At version 5.1 and later, the Syslog plugin can also act as a consumer of Notifications if the NotifyLevel option is provided.

Currently, using LogLevel "debug" is only valid if the collectd sources are built with -DCOLLECT_DEBUG at compilation time.
