Hi Jiri,
I have to admit that we are doing this on just a couple of DBs, but a 
configuration management system sounds like the obvious place of 
implementing such a feature. As a bonus, it's usually easier to maintain 
and hack together than a C plugin. Any particular reason why you wanted 
this to be in collectd itself?

Anyway, in our case a forked and patched version of pdxcat's Puppet module 
along with stdlib's support for concat() for joining two arays did the 
trick without too much hassle.

With kind regards,
