did you define a type `ld' in the `types.db'? It's usually installed in
${pkglibdir} and lists the types known to the daemon. Without a correct
definition there collectd doesn't know how to create the RRD files.

I'd suggest to use the already defined `load' type though:
  echo "${HOST}/${PLUGIN}/load N:${MIN_01}:${MIN_05}:${MIN_15}
