Configuring Collectd


(Jonathan Young) #1

I have already installed and setup Collectd. I am having a problem trying to send my server statistics to another collectd server on my LAN. So in /etc/collectd.conf on my Nethserver, I have:

LoadPlugin network

Server "xx.xx.xx.xx"
ReportStats true

If I restart Collectd, it seems to running fine but my Nethserver does not seem to be transmitting the collectd data to the server. All the other graphs work except for ‘network’ which says “Error: Please check your error for instructions”. When I check the logs, no errors are reported. The collectd network module seems to be loaded ok.

Can anyone help? Thanks

@filippo_carletti probably could help :wink:

OK. Thanks. Is it best for me to email him directly?


(Alessio Fattorini) #4

Nope, certainly he’s reading this topic right now

The config looks correct to me. I can only advise reading the docs:
https://collectd.org/wiki/index.php/Troubleshooting

collectd logs to /var/log/messages. See what’s there, we could probably find the problem.
