RRDcollect -- Round-Robin Database Collecting Daemon.
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 (`-').
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
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.
