Okay, good. Thanks for the feedback :)

Feedback is always welcome, especially since I hardly use Solaris

I think Sebastian sent in a patch to fix a similar bug under FreeBSD and
I'm quite sure this resolves this problem, too. I'll double-check

Could you send me the entire output of an `make all'? It _should_ build
without warnings. (In my opinion warnings are there for a reason ;)

That's weird.. `collectd' uses the highlevel `getutent' or `getutxent'
functions.. I'll try to reproduce the problem tomorrow..

Sounds okay to me..

No, no serious plans at least.. As far as I know there's the `Windows
Services for UNIX' which supposedly provide the POSIX interface under
Windows. This should make it possible to compile the daemon there, I
hope. You'd still have to add some Windows-code to most of the plugins
though, so they'd be able to read some values..

Since I don't have a Windows machine, nor a Windows-license, nor an
windows-compiler it's extremely unlikely that I come around to porting
it. I'd be happy to accept patches in this direction, though.

It's a bit problematic with collectd version 3, but collectd 4 will fix
these flaws. I haven't quite worked out how to best map SNMP-OIDs to
RRD-files with there DSes, min- and max-values and so on, but it'd
definitely be interesting to have such a plugin. I've come accross quite
some hardware (thermometers, RMSes, NetApps, ...) on which I cannot run
custom software but which provide some statistics via SNMP..
