Collectd Docker Image

This image provides a Dockerized collectd configuration to gather operating system statistics from the underlying Docker host instead of a container where it's launched.

The collectd agent started within the container is automatically configured to send metrics into your Axibase Time Series Database instance using the write_atsd plugin. The target ATSD instance is specified in the --atsd-url argument.

Prepare Image

Docker Hub

docker pull axibase/collectd
