Im a first time user of collectd under CentOS 4.4.
Im trying to use the exec pluggin to push custom metrics into collectd.
My simple test case does not work and nothing is logged to syslog. This
little scripts is run and I expect the metrics to appear under
/opt/collectd/var/lib/collectd/qcaste01. Metrics gererated by default
pluggins works. I see the shell script being forked and executed.
while [ 1 ]; do
echo "qcaste01/cpu-0/cpu-idle N:$((x=$x+1))"
This prints to stdout every seconds:
The output metric looks ok as described in the doc... I surely missed
My collectd.conf has only the syslog/logfile/exec pluggins enabled. The
Exec "nobody:nobody" "/opt/collectd/scripts/test.sh"
I tried to put debug log level but nothing is logged.
Any suggestion is appreciated
