collectd docker image
collectd is a daemon which collects system performance statistics periodically
and provides mechanisms to store the values in a variety of ways, for example
in RRD files.
This image allows you to run collectd in a completelly containerized
How to use this image
Run collectd with the default configuration:
docker run \ --privileged \ -v /proc:/mnt/proc:ro \ fr3nd/collectd
Run collectd with a custom configuration stored in /etc/collect
docker run \ --privileged \ -v /etc/collectd:/etc/collectd:ro \ -v /proc:/mnt/proc:ro \ fr3nd/collectd
Do you need to run the container as privileged?
Yes. Collectd needs access to the parent host's /proc filesystem to get
statistics. It's possible to run collectd without passing the parent host's
/proc filesystem without running the container as privileged, but the metrics
would not be acurate.
