It's just something which has to be done in order to integrate
collectd within a nagios environment. It might help to have a single
design of data storage which is consistent and steady. The work has
already been done with collectd-nagios. Just wanted to make sure that
there is no misunderstanding in its usage. Given the syntax in the
examples it just don't work. Take this series of posts more like an
issue tracking :)
