Collectd Client


#1

Hi, I usually use NSClient++ with NRPE and it works great, I noticed that is available a module to send data to a Collectd server which is really GREAT!

I tried this feature adding those lines:

[/settings/collectd/client]
hostname=<HOSTNAME>

[/settings/collectd/client/targets/default]
address=<IP COLLECTD SERVER>
host=<HOSTNAME>
port=<COLLECTD SERVER PORT>
retries=3
timeout=30

I tried also adding “CollectdClient = enabled” under “[/modules]” section but noting happened and launching a test returned “core Failed to find plugin: CollectdClient in C:\Program Files\NSClient++\modules”.

I also tried to sniff network searching for any TCP or UDP connection between NSClient++ and Collectd server but there was nothing.

I’m using NSClient++ 0.5.2.35 x64, and under “Modules” directory there’s no Collectd dll files. On Github sources there’s a whole CollectdClient directory (https://github.com/mickem/nscp/tree/master/modules/CollectdClient) but no sign of a binary dll, is there anyone that could help compile that or can share a compiled dll for this feature?

Thanks
