       RRDcollect  --  Round-Robin Database Collecting Daemon.


       rrdcollect [option]...


       The rrdcollect daemon is responsible for fetching statistical data from
       various soures  (listed  in  rrdcollect.conf),  typically  files  under
       /proc/ directory.  It periodically reads them and searches for patterns
       from configuration file.  Values are then stored inside rrdtool's  .rrd


       RRDcollect follows the usual GNU command line syntax, with long options
       starting with two dashes (`-').

   General options
       -c file
           Specifies which file should be read instead of default config file.

           Program will not fork.  Very useful when testing or debugging.

           Increase verbosity.  This option also implies --no-fork, since  you
           probably  don't  want  RRDcollect  in  daemon  mode  trashing  your

   RRD update options
       -o file
           Specifies  file  to  which  rrdtool(1)-style  commands  should   be
           written.   If  file  you  specify is `-' (hyphen), then commans are
           written to standard output (this case implies --no-fork).

           When this option is used, RRDcollect will open pipe  to  rrdtool(1)
           program  and  send  it update commands.  If you don't give program,
           the compiled-in default is assumed (either `rrdtool  -  >/dev/null'
           or  full  path  to  rrdtool(1)  binary).  The program option can be
           specified as a full path or just a command name, in the latter case
           the program should reside on PATH.

       If  no  RRD  update  option  is  given, RRDcollect uses internal librrd
       routines (the preferred mode  of  operation).   If  RRDcollect  is  not
       compiled with librrd, then it will fall back to pipe-mode.

       Hopefully not many...
