[collectd] collectd exec plugin

I'm trying to use the exec plugin.

So far, I have it running a script which outputs this when run under collectd:

PUTVAL host.somedomain.com/foobar/foobar interval=10.000 N:18

(which is similar to what I see under https://collectd.org/wiki/index.php/Plugin:Exec)

over and over with N varying. Interval will vary when I fix the timing but
for now it is always 10 seconds.

How do I verify that this is collecting in collectd?

When I do a 

  collectdctl -s /var/run/collectd.sock listval | grep foobar

it doesn't show up.
