Hi Yves!

We are speaking here of on the primary collectd server, not the clients
where the data is being collected, hence the lsof could only be run remotely.

We're looking for something entirely local on the primary collectd server, not
farming out the question to the clients.

The only method I know of on the server (besides ssh/rsh/telnet/etc) is 
to run collectdctl for the particular item and if it doesn't show, then assume
the data is not available.
