List of Plugins


The gmond plugin subscribes to a Multicast group to receive data from gmond, the client daemon of the Ganglia project. These values are mapped to types known to collectd and submitted to the system.

Built-in mappings

To map data collected by Ganglia to collectd's “types”, some additional information is necessary. You can specify this information in the configuration file, but for some common data the appropriate information is already built-in. The Ganglia metrics that are understood without configuration are:

System load
load_one, load_five, load_fifteen
CPU usage
cpu_user, cpu_system, cpu_idle, cpu_nice, cpu_wio
Memory usage
mem_free, mem_shared, mem_buffers, mem_cached, mem_total
Network traffic (octets)
bytes_in, bytes_out
Network traffic (packets)
pkts_in, pkts_out
