Uhm, strange … exit status 127 usually means "command not found". So, it
looks like collectdmon cannot find your collectd executable. In case
you're using the Debian package, the init script should set up every-
thing as needed, though. Would you please try to manually start collectd
on the command line:

  collectd -C /etc/collectd/collectd.conf

Does that work? Any other output from that? If that works all right,
please try the following:

  collectdmon -- -C /etc/collectd/collectd.conf

(please note the "--" ;-))

If all of that works fine, please provide some more information about
your setup: Where did you get collectd from? How did you install it? Any
custom modifications or unusual system settings? What kind of system are
you on?
