List of Plugins


The Tail CSV plugin "follows" (tails) and parses CSV files.

This plugin is a generic plugin, i.e. it cannot work without configuration, because there is no reasonable default behavior. Please read the Plugin tail_csv section of the collectd.conf(5) manual page for an in-depth description of the plugin's configuration.
