Since there is no debug message from the `plugin_dispatch_values'
function, you apparently didn't load a `write' plugin, i. e. one that
will actually write the collected values to somewhere.

I see you loaded the network plugin, but for it to actually send the
values somewhere you need to give at least one `Server' option.
Alternatively, you can load one of the following plugins:
  csv, rrdtool, unixsock (, network)

Sorry if you've already done that and I just told you what you already
know, but without the configfile it's kind of hard to tell if that's the
problem or not - and it's the most likely problem.

That's bad.. Does it happen when you kill the process with another
signal, e. g. SIGTERM (the default kill(1) signal), too?

Sorry, can't help you there.. I'm not even sure what SELinux actually
does.. I mean, in a general point of view..
