I'm having some problems trying to collect stats from mongo using collectd.  I am trying to use this python plugin : https://github.com/sebest/collectd-mongodb.  I have it configured in collectd and it is actually sending mongo related metrics however they don't seem to be correct based on some manual correlation that I've done.  I also get this error when starting up collectd with this plugin enabled:

[root at mongo6 ~]# /etc/init.d/collectd restart
Stopping collectd:                                         [  OK  ]
Starting collectd: Parse error in file `/etc/collectd.d/mongodb.py', line 1302 near `<newline>': syntax error, unexpected EOL
yyparse returned error #1
configfile: Cannot read file `/etc/collectd.d/mongodb.py'.
Parse error in file `/etc/collectd.d/mongodb.pyc', line 1319 near `>': syntax error, unexpected CLOSEBRAC
yyparse returned error #1
configfile: Cannot read file `/etc/collectd.d/mongodb.pyc'.
.():():.=.=.=.=[,].=.=.=.=.=.=(,,,,=)::='%-%'%(.,):=(.)=.()[  OK  ]=.=[,].()():=(=.,=.,=)=[.[]]..:.(.,.)=.('')=['']=()

Here is the snipet from my collectd.conf file where I enable the plugin:

<Plugin python>
    ModulePath "/etc/collectd.d/"

    Import "mongodb"
    <Module mongodb>
        Host ""
        Port 26019
        Database "i19" "local"

Does anyone have any idea what might be causing that error?  I tried submitting a bug report directly on the github page for the project but haven't gotten any response in a couple of weeks.  I was about to give up on this when I saw a recent posting to this mailing list saying that someone was able to get this plugin working.

Any help would be greatly appreciated.
