ITSI: collectd adding .value to metrics name

New Member


Trying to figure out a problem. We're using collectd on a Centos el7 box using the default configuration for the cpu plugin. Metrics are making it into Splunk with no problems. When looking at an entity, it shows no data on the graphs. Looking at the query for cpu, I see the fields like cpu.system and cpu.user. Looking at the metrics, I see cpu.system.value and cpu.user.value. Changing the query to use those fields with .value generates results and pretty graphs. Splunk docs specifically mention support collectd so I must be missing something? Do I need to further tweak collectd conf? Or do I need to tweak all the queries to use <metrics name>.value?
