[collectd] collectd flooding logs when rrdcached isn't running

Just started to play with rrdcached in combination with collectd 4.10.2. So far it works great!

The only issue is that when I start collectd when rrdcached isn't running and the socket doesn't exist, my logs are flooded with "rrdcached plugin: rrdc_connect (unix:/var/run/rrdcached.sock) failed with status 2". About 500 times/second.

Would it be possible to use an exponential backoff?

Kind regards,
