Hi Otis,

The main problem with the redis problem, as they said, is the dependency
with credis library. When I create the first version of redis plugin, redis
was not too popular like today is, and there were no a lot of libraries to

I submit a couple of PR to switch the credis dependency to libhiredis one,
which is available in a lot of linux distributions (debian, ubuntu,
centos...). I hope that octo can merge the PR into the master branch.

The PR for use libhiredis is here:
And a bonus in my fork (branch hiredis):
you have a fully functional version of collectd 5.4 with libhiredis
(including also a custom query feature).
