After we do this, we can enable more collectd modules, add more PostgreSQL queries, and so on. All the collectd data will be transmitted to Graphite until we break the connection.
This is powerful functionality, as we will demonstrate.
In this recipe, we will be using both collectd and Graphite. Please follow the instructions in the Installing and ...
