I think what the question was really about was monitoring. not just metrics

the use if metrics in an overall monitoring solution is important. collectd itself I view more as a metrics collection framework

what is really needed as part of the answer is that collectd itself is not an alerting framework. eg they need I look at something like nagios. getting nagios checks to do threshold checks against historical metrics ( say link errors in the last 30 seconds ) is very helpful

collectd itself does not necessarily know not care about individual link state

original requester - hope that helps. was that really more your question/direction?
