       collector - Torrus data Collector.


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


       This command starts the Collector process for the tree TREENAME. By default it forks into
       a daemon, and sleeps until the next cycle in its schedule.

       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.


           Defines the collector instance. A single tree can allow more than one collector
           instance. The number of instances is defined in "run" hash in the
 's %Torrus::Global::treeConfig.  If the number of instances is
           more than one, this option is mandatory.  The collecting job is split between the
           instances, and normally all instances should be started by the startup scripts. The
           tree should be re-compiled after the number of instances is changed in the siteconfig.
           In the example below the tree tree_A will be served by three collector instances:

             %Torrus::Global::treeConfig = (
               'tree_A' => {
                 'description' => 'The First Tree',
                 'xmlfiles' => [qw(a1.xml a2.xml a3.xml)],
                 'run' => { 'collector' => 3, 'monitor' => 1 } },

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

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

           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.

           Sets the log level to debug.

           Sets the debug level to info.

           Displays a help message.
