[collectd] Collectd and nagios on different machines

I am a new user of collectd. I am trying to explore if there is a way of configuring collectd to work with nagios running on a different machine.
I went through the documentation for collectd-nagios plugin and learned that one needs to pass the socket filename for collectd's unix sock plugin.
This would suggest that collectd-nagios and collectd instance have to run on the same machine.
It is a business requirement for us that we collect RRD files (using collectd) on a machine different than the one running nagios.
Did anyone else face the same issue? Can someone suggest me a solution?

Thanks in advance.
