I'm using collectd with the snmp and write_graphite plugins. I want certain metrics to go to Graphite with prefix A, and others to go with prefix B, to keep the data in Graphite/Whisper organized.
For example, I would like to divide things up like this:
My write_graphite config looks like this:
<Plugin write_graphite> <Node "mygraphitehost"> Host "mygraphitehost" Port "2003" Protocol "tcp" LogSendErrors true Prefix "network." Postfix "-collectd" </Node> </Plugin>
This causes everything I gather with the snmp plugin show up under the "network" folder in the Graphite web interface. Is running multiple collectds with different configs/init scripts the only way to solve this?
