Many do not send to another collectd, but directly to a time-series 
database. You can find a lot of documentation about 
Note : do not use the network plugin of collectd to send your metrics to 
the time-series database. There are other plugins to do it. write_tsdb 
is one of them.

Note : I have not used Influxdb for more than 1 year now. Maybe things 
have changed and the network plugin of Collectd can send meta-data ?
