|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>
Host - Bind to the given interface/address. By default, if option is not set, the plugin will bind to the "any" address, i.e. accept requests sent to any of the hosts interfaces/addresses. This option is supported only for libmicrohttpd newer than 0.9.0.
Port - Port the embedded webserver should listen on. Defaults to 9104.
