Configuration Parameters

The plugin supports the following configuration parameters:

Key

Description

Default

Address

Set the address to listen to

0.0.0.0

Port

Set the port to listen to

25826

TypesDB

Set the data specification file

/usr/share/collectd/types.db

Configuration Examples

Here is a basic configuration example.

[INPUT]
Name collectd
Address 0.0.0.0
Port 25826
TypesDB /usr/share/collectd/types.db,/etc/collectd/custom.db
[OUTPUT]
Name stdout
Match *

With this configuration, fluent-bit listens to 0.0.0.0:25826, and outputs incoming datagram packets to stdout.

You must set the same types.db files that your collectd server uses. Otherwise, fluent-bit may not be able to interpret the payload properly.
