types.db - Data-set specifications for the system statistics collection
if_octets rx:COUNTER:0:4294967295, tx:COUNTER:0:4294967295
The types.db file contains one line for each data-set specification.
Each line consists of two fields delimited by spaces and/or horizontal
tabs. The first field defines the name of the data-set, while the
second field defines a list of data-source specifications, delimited by
spaces and, optionally, a comma (",") right after each list-entry.
The format of the data-source specification has been inspired by
RRDtool’s data-source specification. Each data-source is defined by a
quadruple made up of the data-source name, type, minimal and maximal
values, delimited by colons (":"): ds-name:ds-type:min:max. ds-type may
be either COUNTER or GAUGE. min and max define the range of valid
values for data stored for this data-source. If U is specified for
either the min or max value, it will be set to unknown, meaning that no
range checks will happen. See rrdcreate(1) for more details.
The location of the types.db file is defined by the TypesDB
configuration option (see collectd.conf(5)). If you want to specify
custom data-sets, you should do so by using a custom file specified as
an additional argument to the TypesDB option.
