|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.
<Plugin capabilities> Host "localhost" Port "9104" </Plugin>

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.
