works fine with RHEL 7.4 but won't gives an error "Token is required","code":2 . it looks like it may be related to version 5.5.2 of the collectd but I need to know if there's a newer version that's possible to use that does work with redhat 6.9.
collectd version 5.6 or higher is required 🙂
I have updated the doco to be clearer on this point.
is it really required
collectd version 5.6 includes support for the write_http plugin, which is used to send the metrics to the Splunk HTTP Event Collector.
I have not tested collectd below 5.6, but a different method of sending events to Splunk would have to be used.
