The problem is with collectd python module - python script can't load it. It can't find it in default python modules path. Is collectd python module included in collectd source code? If so please write with file it is because I couldn't find it. If it's not included in collectd source code from where can I get it? In collectd python plugin documentation there is example with "import collectd" which is loading collectd python module.

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?
