It's ok ... I haven't develop anything in the last years .. only my
scripts, and sysadmin smalls program .... sorry ... ;-)

Yes, it'is. I put it on one type to have only one rrrd file for gc type, but
you can put it on separate files if you want.
About it ... in the first message I send you a collectd servlet. If you
don't want stats about garbage collector then you can use the manager/status
servlet that is bundled with tomcat.

A tomcat connector is a port & protocol method to connect to tomcat. On the
tomcat instance you can define a connector on a 8080 port with HTTP
procotol, another 8009 with AJP protocol, another on port 80443 with HTTPS
protocol, etc ..... all stats on Mbeans are under the connector instances

I read the file and all your changes are ok for me... Now is easier to read
and safer ... good job !
Only ... on the tomcat_shutdown function, I forgot change
plugin_unregister_config to plugin_unregister_complex_config ....

You are welcome !! ... thanks for you and sebastian, you make a fantastic
job ! ;-)
I see the web git repository and I can't find this branch to see the man
page ... can you send me a copy for read it ?? ;-)
I'm testing your version ... I hope tomorrow send you my comments ...
