I installed Collectd in CentOS 7.2 I followed the link. http://www.tecmint.com/install-collectd-and-collectd-web-to-monitor-server-resources-in-linux/2/

After I started Collectd from what I read the one of the default metric is CPU. I was not able to find the location where this information is collected.



Collectd provides mechanisms to store those metrics in different ways. One being in RRD files.

If you choose that method, you'd want to enable the plugin rrdtool in /etc/collectd.conf and specifically set the Directory to store those files as well:

LoadPlugin rrdtool

<Plugin rrdtool>
     DataDir "/var/lib/collectd/rrd"
