Random Collector Plugin


This plugin adds the new collector type. It actually doesn't collect anything, but generates randomly generated values. The main purpose of this plugin is testing various aspects of Torrus, and particularly its modular Collector design.


Follow the Torrus installation guide for the main software installation.

Unpack the plugin distribution package in some directory:

  gzip -dc tp-randomcollector-1.X.tar.gz | tar xvf -

Then run the Torrus plugin installation utility:

  torrus install_plugin tp-randomcollector-1.X

Restart all Torrus processes, including Apache HTTP daemon.

That is all, now you can use the parameters described below in your XML configuration.

genrandomcfg utility may be used to create a typical configuration for the random collector.
