Collectd is and industry standard open source systems collector. Statful is wire compatible with the Collectd
write_http plugin which means it can receive, store and display collectd received metrics.
To integrate collectd and Statful add the

An example of the configuration can be found next:
<Plugin write_http> <Node "hostname"> URL "https://api.statful.com/tel/v2.0/collectd/environment=dev,local=UK" User "collectd" Password "231a4f07-0c1b-lk63-2s32-1d4434d6hkdb" Format "JSON" </Node> </Plugin>

- key: local - value: UK.
