Using the “tabs” in the top right corner you can switch between the homepage and the wiki. When in the wiki, the menu on the right holds a link to the “Main Page” (this page) and other wiki controls.
Unfortunately, we had to stop allowing anonymous edits and even self-registration due to huge problems with spambots. If you want to contribute to the wiki, we're more than happy to create an account for you: ping us on IRC (
#collectd on freenode) or on the mailing list – we need an email address and the username of your choice.
This sucks, wikis should be open by default. We've tried our fair share of more permissive variants, from allowing external links only to registered users to letting users solve a Captcha. If you're an awesome wiki admin and want to deal with this, please ping octo. Also feel free to reach out on collectd mailing list at email@example.com.
