NAME

       collector - Torrus data Collector.

SYNOPSIS

       torrus collector --tree=TREENAME [options...]

DESCRIPTION

       This command starts the Collector process for the tree TREENAME. By
       default it forks into a daemon, sets the log output file to
       /var/log/torrus/collector.TREENAME.log, performs one Collector cycle,
       and sleeps until the next cycle is scheduled. In daemon mode the log
       file can be reopened by sending it a SIGHUP signal.

       Collector cycle scheduling is controlled by two parameters defined for
       each individual configuration leaf: "collector-period" and
       "collector-timeoffset". See the Torrus Configuration Guide for more
       details.

       The number of OID (Object IDentifier) variable bindings sent by
       Collector is controlled by the datasource parameter
       "snmp-oids-per-pdu".  It is set to a default value of 40 in
       snmp-defs.xml, and may be overwritten at the host level.

OPTIONS

       --nodaemon
           Prevents the process from becoming a daemon and sets the log to
           STDERR.

       --runonce
           Instructs the collector to run once and exit. Implies --nodaemon.

       --runalways
           Instructs the collector process to continue running even if no
           collector datasources are defined in the tree. In this case, the
           process will check once per hour if the configuration has changed.

       --debug
           Sets the log level to debug.

       --verbose
           Sets the debug level to info.

       --help
           Displays a help message.
