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"

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.

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. Examples:

   curl localhost:9104
