Category:Plugins requiring privileges

List of plugins which require special privileges. Usually they need to open a raw socket or a netlink socket.

The purpose of this list is help to determine how to deal with those plugins. If possible, we'd like to be able to “drop” privileges after collectd has started up, in order to minimize security risks. Under Linux an alternative mechanism might be to only provide required capabilities(7).
