Can you clarify what you mean by "the plugin can't load it?" Do you can an 
error? Or is the Python plugin not finding the mongodb.py plugin?

Per the wiki page here: https://collectd.org/wiki/index.php/Plugin:Python you 
will need to provide a path to the module you're trying load.  Can you post 
your collectd config?
