Librato has invested considerable time in creating a variant of collectd that vastly simplifies setup and configuration and is fully integrated with the Librato app. We refer to it as the The Librato Agent. The agent works seamlessly with Configuration Management tools and makes installation of plugins featured in our Integrations Catalog seamless.
Collectd is one of the most popular and widely deployed OSS system monitoring agents. It is used for everything from basic statistics gathering, to performance analysis and capacity planning. Written in C, it is fast, lightweight, and included by default in most Linux distributions. With over 90 plugins, it is also quite flexible.
COMING SOON! We’re currently transitioning to a multi-dimensional, tag-based data model. This collection agent is still under construction and will be available soon. Please let us know if you need this integration. It helps us prioritize our work.
