Learn how to send memcached data collected by collectd to Wavefront.

memcached is a popular memory object cache system. See [collectd memcached plugin documentation] (https://collectd.org/wiki/index.php/Plugin:memcached).

Wavefront supports a built-in integration that gets data from memcached using Telegraf. If you want to use collectd instead, follow the instructions on this page.


  1. On your collectd host, copy the config below into /etc/collectd/managed_config/.
  2. Edit the settings in the file for your memcached server.
  3. Restart collectd.
