Yes, I don't think the virt plugin is able to gather data from more than
one libvirtd instance.

A typical usage pattern which would get you out of this situation, is to
run the collectd agent on each hypervisor, and have them all ship their
metrics to a central server for archiving & graphing.

Hope that helps !
