NAME

       collectd-tg - Traffic generator for collectd.

SYNOPSIS

       collectd-tg -n num_vl -H num_hosts -p num_plugins -i interval -d dest -D dport

DESCRIPTION

       collectd-tg generates bogus collectd network traffic. While host, plugin and values are
       generated randomly, the generated traffic tries to mimic "real" traffic as closely as
       possible.

ARGUMENTS AND OPTIONS

       The following options are understood by collectd-tg. The order of the arguments generally
       doesn't matter, as long as no argument is passed more than once.

       -n num_vl
           Sets the number of unique value lists (VL) to generate. Defaults to 10000.

       -H num_hosts
           Sets the number of unique hosts to simulate. Defaults to 1000.

       -p num_plugins
           Sets the number of unique plugins to simulate. Defaults to 20.

       -i interval
           Sets the interval in which each value list is dispatched. Defaults to 10.0 seconds.

       -d dest
           Sets the destination to which to send the generated network traffic. Defaults to the
           IPv6 multicast address, "ff18::efc0:4a42".

       -D dport
           Sets the destination port or service to which to send the generated network traffic.
           Defaults to collectd's default port, 25826.

       -h  Print usage summary.
