We are trying to use ovs_stats collectd’s plugin but it comes with an
error-warning and the metrics that are exposed are not stable.
We use openvswitch 2.11.0, dpdk 18.11.1 and collectd 5.9.2 (package
libyajl-dev is installed) with configuration:
When running collectd we get the warning:
plugin_dispatch_values: ds->type = if_errors: (ds->ds_num = 2) !=
(vl->values_len = 1)
When we tried it in debug mode the warning became an assertation error:
assert(0 == strcmp(ds->type, vl->type)) and collectd exited.
The check that fails can be found in this link:

In addition, some of the metrics (e.g. ovs_stats-fastbr0.dev1/if_packets)
are not exposed constantly and sometimes, when they are exposed, their
values are NaN. Is this expected to happen or does it come as a result of
the above warning?
Note that this warning occurs when using collectd 5.9.2 and not with
Thanks in advance for any help,
