Hi all, 

For my needs at work I wrote a plugin for collectd and I
wish to share it with you. 

This plugins, temporary called ethstat and
wrote in C, collect lot of performance counter about network interface
as "ethtool -S ethX" do by asking NIC driver module. 

At the moment
this plugin work only under Linux. Any help would be great for make it
working under Solaris, AIX and co ... 

If you think this plugin may be
included to collectd sources, what is the procedure to do it ?

To be added to configuration file to make
it work : 

LoadPlugin ethstat 

 Iface "eth0"

# Iface "eth1"

# Iface

# Iface "eth3"
