Thanks for the reply. Last night I sat down with the rrd code and got a
much better feel for how things work. I think my initial issue was that I
was conflating reading with collecting and thinking I would be using
collectd for both. So far, things are smoothing out for me as I understand
more about how things need  to work.

You're correct that setting the RRDCACHED_ADDRESS before I start calling
the python rrdtool resolved the main concerns that I had.

Thanks :)
