List of Plugins

The ZeroMQ plugin transmits or receives values collected by collectd via the ØMQ (Zero Message Queue) messaging library. The data is encoded in the binary protocol used by the Network plugin, too. Depending on its configuration, the ZeroMQ plugin can operate in a number of messaging modes.

Currently, the plugin can be configured to use the PUSH, PULL, PUBLISH, and SUBSCRIBE patterns.


<Plugin "zeromq">
  <Socket Publish>
    Endpoint "tcp://localhost:6666"
  <Socket Subscribe>
    Endpoint "tcp://eth0:6666"
    Endpoint "tcp://"
