Collectd ( https://collectd.org/ ) is a client/server setup that gathers system information from clients and allows the server to display that information over various time periods.
Our server instance runs on log01.phx2.fedoraproject.org and most other servers run clients that connect to the server and provide it with data.

log01 and all/most other servers as clients
provide load and system information on servers.
The collectd roles configure collectd on the various machines:
collectd/base - This is the base client role for most servers. collectd/server - This is the server for use on log01. collectd/other - There's various other subroles for different types of clients.
The server web interface is available at:
collectd runs as a normal systemd or sysvinit service, so you can: systemctl restart collectd or service collectd restart to restart it.
Collectd keeps information around until it’s deleted, so you may need to sometime go remove data from a host or hosts thats no longer used. To do this:
Login to log01
sudo rm -rf oldhostname
Collectd is in Fedora/EPEL and we use their packages, so report bugs to bugzilla.redhat.com.
