collectd is a small daemon which collects system information periodically and
provides mechanisms to monitor and store the values in a variety of ways.
Since the daemon doesn't need to startup every time it wants to update the
values it's very fast and easy on the system. Also, the statistics are very
fine grained since the files are updated every 10 seconds by default.
This package contains the development files needed to create your own

collectd (5.1.0-3) unstable; urgency=low
* debian/patches/migrate-4-5-df.dpatch, debian/collectd-core.postinst:
- Added patch to fix the migration of 'df' values in migrate-4-5.px;
thanks to 'markuskaindl' for reporting this on IRC.
- Pass --rrdfilter and --rrdtool parameters to migrate-4-5.px in order to
let the script find those binaries/scripts.
(Closes: #681363)
* debian/collectd-core.collectd.init.d:
- Catch disabled state in start and restart and don't exit with an error
status. Amongst others, this fixes an upgrade of collectd when the
daemon is disabled. Thanks to Florian Ernst for reporting this and
Evgeni Golov for providing (an early) patch (Closes: #681216).
- Don't use 'set -e' and 'exit 0' (at the end) in order to let return
statuses propagate correctly. (cf. #681216)

* debian/collectd-core.postinst:

supports libmodbus 3; thanks to Ivo De Decker for reporting this

- Use log_* and status_of_proc functions from LSB's init functions to
make collectd's output look like all the other output; thanks to
Matthias Urlichs for pointing this out (Closes: #679355).
