Collectd

The collectd input plugin allows you to receive datagrams from collectd service.

Configuration Parameters

The plugin supports the following configuration parameters:

Key

Description

Default

Listen

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
Listen 0.0.0.0
Port 25826
TypesDB /usr/share/collectd/types.db,/etc/collectd/custom.db
‚Äč
[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.
