[collectd] Which plug-ins support collection interval on a per-plugin basis feature introduced from 5.2

I've been testing the 5.4.1 release of collectd and assumed that most core
plug-ins now supported the Interval feature to override the global setting.
For ethstat, interface and table this hasn't been implemented yet. So
wondering if there is a list of which plug-ins do currently support their
own interval settings. I could check the source code to see if Interval is
included in the callback function. But if Interval support was included in
say the wiki  plugin table that would be helpful.

Why I'm interested is as a though the Interval 10 second default is good
for most metrics a higher collect frequency is desirable for cpu. However
with  no plugin options available for cpu the solution would be to set the
 Interval required for cpu within the global parameter and then increase
the interval for others that do provide a plugin block.

Any suggestions welcome.
