TYPES.DB(5)			   collectd			   TYPES.DB(5)

NAME
       types.db	- Data-set specifications for the system statistics collection
       daemon collectd

SYNOPSIS
	 bitrate    value:GAUGE:0:4294967295
	 counter    value:COUNTER:U:U
	 if_octets  rx:COUNTER:0:4294967295, tx:COUNTER:0:4294967295

DESCRIPTION
       The types.db file contains one line for each data-set specification.
       Each line consists of two fields	delimited by spaces and/or horizontal
       tabs. The first field defines the name of the data-set, while the
       second field defines a list of data-source specifications, delimited by
       spaces and, optionally, a comma (",") right after each list-entry.

       The format of the data-source specification has been inspired by
       RRDtool's data-source specification. Each data-source is	defined	by a
       quadruple made up of the	data-source name, type,	minimal	and maximal
       values, delimited by colons (":"): ds-name:ds-type:min:max. ds-type may
       be either ABSOLUTE, COUNTER, DERIVE, or GAUGE. min and max define the
       range of	valid values for data stored for this data-source. If U	is
       specified for either the	min or max value, it will be set to unknown,
       meaning that no range checks will happen. See rrdcreate(1) for more
       details.

FILES
       The location of the types.db file is defined by the TypesDB
       configuration option (see collectd.conf(5)). It defaults	to collectd's
       shared data directory, i. e. prefix/share/collectd/.

CUSTOM TYPES
       If you want to specify custom types, you	should do so by	specifying a
       custom file in addition to the default one (see FILES) above. You can
       do that by having multiple TypesDB statements in	your configuration
       file or by specifying more than one file	in one line.

       For example:

	TypesDB	"/opt/collectd/share/collectd/types.db"
	TypesDB	"/opt/collectd/etc/types.db.custom"

       Note: Make sure to make this file available on all systems if you're
       sending values over the network.
