List of Plugins

The capabilities plugin collects platform capabilities decoded from hardware subsystems, for example from SMBIOS using dmidecode. The static platform data is exposed through a micro embedded webserver and returned by the plugin in json format.

Synopsis

Caveats

Accessing the stats

The capabilities plugin doesn't operate like a regular read plugin. Since it exposes static information, there is no need to constantly sent the information to collectd. The information is exposed through a webserver and available by cURLing the Host:Port from the configuration.

   curl localhost:9104
