Hi All,

I am using collectd 4.5.3 on RHEL5 with Xen 3.1.2.

I have the following configuration in /etc/collectd.conf file -

LoadPlugin unixsock

400 <Plugin unixsock>
401     SocketFile "/var/run/collectd-unixsock"
402     SocketGroup "collectd"
403     SocketPerms "0775"
404 </Plugin>

I created this file /var/run/collectd-unixsock and it has permissions -

[root at samoa2 collectd 11:14 PM]$ ls -l /var/run/collectd-*
*-rw-rw-rw- 1 root root 0 Jul 28 22:43 /var/run/collectd-unixsock
I also created group *collectd* and can be seen as -

[root at samoa2 collectd 11:11 PM]$ cat /etc/group | grep collectd

When I start the collectd it shows up in the /var/lib/collectd.log file the
following error -

 [2009-07-28 23:07:44] unixsock plugin: bind failed: Address already in use

Is there anything missing in configuration of unixsock plugin ?
