Mmmh, not sure exactly how the collectd protocol decoder works on the
logstash side, but I could imagine it needs the matching types in
types.db. Did you try adding your "ssdhealth" type to logstash's
types.db ?

Other than that, maybe try enabling the cvs plugin to make sure
everything works fine on the collectd side.
