Hi All,

I have collectd version 4.5.3 installed on Xen platform.

[root at samoa1 ~ 11:12 PM]$ uname -a
Linux samoa1 *2.6.18-128.1.1.el5xen *#1 SMP Mon Jan 26 14:19:09 EST 2009
x86_64 x86_64 x86_64 GNU/Linux

I have two question regarding usage of collectd -

1. I enabled the Plugin section for libvirt but I don't see any entry for
libvirt in LoadPlugin section in default /etc/collectd.conf file. So I added
the entry myself and try starting the collectd with command and get this -

[root at samoa1 ~ 10:39 PM]$ /etc/init.d/collectd start
Starting collectd: Could not find plugin libvirt.
[2009-07-27 22:39:38] Found a configuration for the `libvirt' plugin, but
the plugin isn't loaded or didn't register a configuration callback.
[2009-07-27 22:39:38] Found a configuration for the `libvirt' plugin, but

                                                           [  OK  ]

Next I see the plugin directory specified at /etc/collectd.conf is located
at - *PluginDir   "/usr/lib64/collectd"*

But libvirt.so.x file is not available there. I also see libvirt.so.x file
in /usr/lib/ directory. So do I have to copy or create soft links to that
file from plugin dir ?

Or is there any other way to make libvirt plugin work ?

2. I see there is a plugin for gmond - which essentially recieves data from
ganglia gmonds but Is there a way to send collectd data to ganglia gmond ?
