Collect linux statistics with collectd

Collectd is a great tool to collect various parameters of a running linux installation.

It can monitor disk space, cpu load, temperatures and much more.

One thing to note, is that collectd can cause system load by itself.
To prevent this, enable caching in the rddtools.
