Just a minor suggestion: at http://collectd.org/related.shtml under "Similar
projects" you might want to add links to:

  Graphite <http://graphite.wikidot.com/>
  Statsd <https://github.com/etsy/statsd/>

Graphite *is* mentioned if you dig down into the description of the Carbon
and Graphite plugins, but this is difficult to find.

Statsd has a lightweight UDP protocol (similar to collectd),
aggregates/summarises data before submitting it periodically to graphite.
Graphite has a data storage engine and a very powerful dynamic GUI.

The combination of collectd for data collection with graphite for data
storage and graphing looks like it could be very powerful.
