NAME

collectd-tg - Traffic generator for collectd.

CONTENTS

SYNOPSIS

collectd-tg -n num_vl -H num_hosts -p num_plugins -i interval -d dest -D dport

DESCRIPTION

collectd-tg generates bogus collectd network traffic. While host, plugin and values are generated randomly, the generated traffic tries to mimic real traffic as closely as possible.

ARGUMENTS AND OPTIONS

The following options are understood by collectd-tg. The order of the arguments generally doesn’t matter, as long as no argument is passed more than once.
-n num_vl Sets the number of unique value lists (VL) to generate. Defaults to 10000.
-H num_hosts Sets the number of unique hosts to simulate. Defaults to 1000.
-p num_plugins Sets the number of unique plugins to simulate. Defaults to 20.
-i interval Sets the interval in which each value list is dispatched. Defaults to 10.0 seconds.
-d dest Sets the destination to which to send the generated network traffic. Defaults to the IPv6 multicast address, ff18::efc0:4a42.
-D dport Sets the destination port or service to which to send the generated network traffic. Defaults to collectd’s default port, 25826.
-h Print usage summary.
