The Write target is a built-in target of collectd's filter subsystem. It is used to send value lists to one or all write plugins, for example the RRDtool plugin.

Synopsis

<Target "write">
  Plugin "rrdtool"
</Target>

Common info messages

Filter subsystem: Built-in target `write': Dispatching value to all write plugins failed with status 2.
The function plugin_write, which is used to actually send the value lists to the appropriate plugins, returned the status ENOENT which, on many (GNU libc based) systems, has the numeric value 2.
This info message most likely means that you forgot to load a write plugin. Load the RRDtool plugin, configure the Network plugin to send values (→ howto) or pick any other plugin registering a write callback.
This error code is also returned if the data_set_t cannot be found. This is very unlikely though because this is checked earlier in the processing.
