if you set the `CreateFiles' option to `false', only existing files will
be updated by the daemon. Do those files exist?

Could you please provide a PCAP file (the output file format of tcpdump)
of some network traffic between collectd and rrdcached? That way it'd be
easier to understand what's really going on.
