[collectd] snmp woes

Hi there,

I was hoping someone could help me with the SNMP plugin.

I'm trying to query the amount of tapes in my tape library, the following
works fine;

[root at logs ~]# snmpwalk -v2c -c public X.X.X.X

SNMPv2-SMI::enterprises.3478. = INTEGER: 95

I've got the following defined in /etc/collectd.conf

<Data "tapes">

            Type "gauge"

            Table true

            Values ""


<Host "t120.mydomain.com">

            Address X.X.X.X

            Version 2

            Community "public"

            Collect "tapes"


Collectd starts up no problem without throwing any errors but for some
reason nothing ever gets parsed into graphite. (Other stats are)

Any ideas? I'm out of places to look.
