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.
The collected information can be used to find current performance bottlenecks
(performance analysis) and predict future system load (capacity planning).
This package provides a full installation of the daemon, including the
configuration. For the core system, see the "collectd-core" package, which
allows sites to, e.g., provide customizations (like a custom default
configuration) on top of it without having to modify the "collectd" package.

[ Luca Boccassi ]
* debian/patches:
- Add dpdk-pkg-config.patch: Backport upstream patch to build DPDK with
pkg-config. This allows DPDK in Debian to fix an upstream multi-arch
issue, where arch-dependents headers are installed in /usr/include
breaking multi-arch co-installability of libdpdk-dev. (Closes: #872482)
[ Sebastian Harl ]
* Disable the sigrok plugin for now; it's not compatible with libsigrok4;
thanks to Adrian Bunk for reporting this (Closes: #878348).
* Enable the write_mongodb plugin, libmongoc is now available. Thanks to
Saikrishna Arcot for reporting this (Closes: #858315).
- Add write_mongodb.patch to update the plugin to the most recent upstream
version to bring it up to date with Debian's libmongoc and fix some
other issues.
* Update to standards-version 4.1.1:
- Build depend on debhelper (>= 9.20160709~) instead of dh-systemd.
- Use priority "optional" instead of deprecated priority "extra".
* Disable the varnish plugin for now. collectd FTBFS against varnish 5.2.
Cf. and #879471.
