Hi ,

I have installed collectd and libvirt in a ubuntu box.

Here is the way I have installed collectd:

 cd /tmp/
# wget http://collectd.org/files/collectd-x.y.z.tar.bz2
# tar jxf collectd-x.y.z.tar.bz2
# cd collectd-x.y.z

# ./configure

# make all install
# cd /opt/collectd/

I have enabled libvirt plugin.

This is my collectd.conf:

 LoadPlugin libvirt

 <Plugin "libvirt">
  Connection "xen:///"
  RefreshInterval 60
  Domain "dom0"
  BlockDevice "name:device"
  InterfaceDevice "name:interface"
  IgnoreSelected true
  HostnameFormat "name"

I have executed the following command:

# /opt/collectd/sbin/collectd

Received the following error: 'Unable to load plugin Libvirt'

Please help me to resolve the issue.
