this was a project a while back that never got finished. The code is
still available [0] but would probably need some work to be rebased onto
the current master branch.

It's been too long to remember what kept this from being merged, but if
you're interested on working on this I'll take a look and we can get a
code review process started.

The AMQP plugin might be worth a look.

Also, there's this idea of creating a "netcmd" plugin [1]. It's supposed
to work like the "unixsock" plugin first (i.e. accept control commands
such as "flush") but I would like to, eventually, make it possible to
use for collectd-to-collectd traffic, too.

(I'm kind of ashamed of this plugin: I've been working on it for years
and it's been nearly done for pretty much the entire time. I really
should finish it up some time. Soon …)

HTH and best regards,
