Hi Suresh
You can use a filtering chain to set the metadata, Please see: https://collectd.org/documentation/manpages/collectd.conf.5.shtml#filter_configuration

I need to add some custom metadata like (region/site) for all metrics from a host. How to achieve that?

I can in see in write_tsdb or write_riemann,there are direct options available. I don't see anything similar with write_http.

<Plugin write_tsdb>

   <Node "example">

     Host "tsd-1.my.domain"

     Port "4242"

     HostTags "status=production"



<Plugin "write_riemann">

   <Node "example">

     Host "localhost"

     Port "5555"

     Protocol UDP

     StoreRates true

     AlwaysAppendDS false

     TTLFactor 2.0


   Tag "foobar"

   Attribute "foo" "bar"
