Hi everyone,

I would like to send all collectd metrics to a graphite carbon except
metrics collected by my python plugins. How could I do that?

I've tried something like this using Filters and Chains:

LoadPlugin "write_graphite"
<Plugin write_graphite>
                Host "10.x.x.x"
                Port "2003"
                Prefix "prod.servers."
                StoreRates true
                AlwaysAppendDS false
                EscapeCharacter "_"

<Chain "PreCache">
        <Rule "send_to_carbon">
                <Match "regex">
                       Invert true
                       Plugin "python"
                <Target "write">
                        Plugin "write_graphite"
                Target stop

Unfortunately it didn't work.
