It's highly probable the collectd package you installed on CentOS 6 doesn't
have the Python plugin compiled in.

Running `rpm -ql collectd | grep python` will tell you if you've got any
Python bits in the installed package.

You likely need to find an alternative package with the Python plugin, or
build collectd from source.
