Collectd DF Plugin not generating output on Linux with XFS file system

The Collectd DF plugin configuration is not generating output on some Linux operating systems with an XFS file system, for example CentOS 7. This might happen if the installed Collectd package was not built with XFS support.

The configuration in the workaround below will be the default configuration for the Collectd DF Plugin for releases after SII 1.1.1.

Workaround

In collectd.conf file, set IgnoreSelected as true and add all FSType you do not want to be reported by Collectd. For example, change the DF plugin configuration in /etc/collectd.conf as follows:

<Plugin df>
FSType "autofs"
FSType "binfmt_misc"
FSType "cgroup"
FSType "configfs"
FSType "debugfs"
FSType "devpts"
FSType "devtmpfs"
FSType "hugetlbfs"
FSType "mqueue"
FSType "nfsd"
FSType "proc"
FSType "pstore"
FSType "rpc_pipefs"
FSType "securityfs"
FSType "sysfs"
FSType "tmpfs"
ReportByDevice true
ValuesAbsolute false
ValuesPercentage true
IgnoreSelected true
</Plugin>
