NAME
       collectd-tg - Traffic generator for collectd.

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.
