Well I found couple of things which I was missing -
1. I yum installed *collectd-virt* which puts collectd version of libvirt.so
in my Plugin directory.
This was not there earlier with installation *yum install collectd *and I
would have to install libvirt-devel as mentioned below and then compile
collectd from source.
So this way I just *yum install collectd-virt* which for now makes it work
for me. I believe it takes care of libvirt-devel even if I did not had it
Now I have libvirt installed and getting the metrics but the problem I have
now is it gets me only CPU metrics by default.
I want to atleast have 2-4 metrics - CPU, Memory, Network and Disk. How do I
add these to be fetched from libvirt through collectd ?
I do not see any options for that in -
162 <Plugin libvirt>
163 Connection "xen:///"
164 # RefreshInterval 60
165 # Domain "name"
166 # BlockDevice "name:device"
167 # InterfaceDevice "name:device"
168 # IgnoreSelected false
169 HostnameFormat name
Do I just uncomment BlockDevice and InterfaceDevice for Disk and Network ?
What about memory ?
