We strongly recommend not to install under root user, but utilize “sudo” command.

The following command will show if the service is running on your machine:

 service collectd status
In order to allow collectd service run and gather metrics correctly please make sure you have configured FQDN properly on an instance with installed linux agent. In general terms your loopback interface IP (127.0.0.1 / 127.0.1.1) in /etc/hosts file should be associated with your real hostname.
