Hello everybody,

after a very long development cycle, I'm extremely happy to announce the
availability of version 5.5.0. This release is *packed* with new
features. So much so, that I'm only going to include a summary in this
email. The full list of changes is available in the wiki [0].

New plugins allow collectd to read metrics from Ceph and DRBD (both
distributed file systems), OpenLDAP and Apache Zookeeper. On the
hardware side, there are new plugins for reading barometers, SMART data
from hard drives and C-states (idle states) from Intel CPUs. From the
operating system we now get information on file handles and shared

Integration with other systems has also been improved, there are new
plugins to write collectd metrics to Apache Kafka, a distributed message
queue, Sensu, a popular monitoring solution, and OpenTSDB, a distributed
timeseries database.

Of course, many existing plugins have been extended, too. For example,
CPU usage can finally be reported as a percentage, rather than jiffies.
This was one of our most-requested features.


The new version is available in source-code form from collectd's
download page. The direct download links are:
