[collectd] write_http silently discarding packets

We've been load testing write_http on a collectd 4.10.5 server thats taking
around 500pps
(packets per second) worth of updates via the network plugin and writing it
via json post
with the write_http plugin.

Regardless of how much traffic we send, the write_http plugin never pushes
more than 20-30pps. The
rest just disappears. Also unrelated we discovered that you can't use any
other write plugins with write_http.
Only write_http will work and the others wont work.

Any ideas?
