Hello, folks!

Long time happy user of collectd version3.11.7 (still running) here.

It's been a while since I had to dig into config files and such, and now I'm
having some trouble finding the best possible way to get some data from CSV
files into rrd files. My data looks like this:

2015-03-18 22:13:10,1426709590,26.625,22.187,22.000,20.000,1,0,1,0,0,62
2015-03-18 22:13:20,1426709600,26.625,22.187,22.000,20.000,1,0,1,0,0,62
2015-03-18 22:13:30,1426709610,26.687,22.125,22.000,20.000,1,0,1,0,0,62

Can you help me out with some example config which would generate separate
rrd files with each of the 3-rd to 12-th columns? My columns 1 and 2 are the
same - time - but in different format. I was hoping I could use the
"tail_csv" plugin, but I got nowhere with that. Is it even possible with the
plugins available with collectd? I considered the "table" plugin, but from
the documentation available - and the examples shown - I gathered its for
uses somewhat like I intended, but no exactly.

Any help would be greatly appreciated.
