Devel package for collectd needed to build additional plugins
Last modified: 2016-02-14 05:57:21 EST
Description of problem:
Building plugins not included in collectd, such as collectd-write_graphite, requires downloading and building all of collectd (i.e. executing the "rpmbuild -bc collectd.spec" stage to get config.h").
The current epel7 collectd package does not include sufficent headers or pkg-config information to build plugins. The collectd package currently includes:
# rpm -ql collectd | grep [ch]$
Specifically, to build the collectd-write_graphite plugin, the following header files are needed from the collectd source:
Other plugins may need additional header files.
write_graphite is part of collectd. Just install the collectd-write_graphite package.
I'm not entirely sure what you're asking.
Is there a specific plugin you're missing in EPEL?
*facepalm* I'm so sorry. I didn't see a collectd-write_graphite package and didn't look it the main package. I didn't realized it was included in the upstream source package. I was referred to the write_graphite github page as a starting point.
No problem at all, this happens more often than you think :)
