SYNOPSIS collectd-tg -n num_vl -H num_hosts -p num_plugins -i interval -d dest -D dport
DESCRIPTION collectd-tg generates bogus collectd network traffic. While host, plugin and values are generated randomly, the generated traffic tries to mimic "real" traffic as closely as possible.

Defaults to 10000. -H num_hosts Sets the number of unique hosts to simulate. Defaults to 1000. -p num_plugins Sets the number of unique plugins to simulate. Defaults to 20. -i interval Sets the interval in which each value list is dispatched. Defaults to 10.0 seconds. -d dest Sets the destination to which to send the generated network traffic. Defaults to the IPv6 multicast address, "ff18::efc0:4a42". -D dport Sets the destination port or service to which to send the generated network traffic. Defaults to collectd's default port, 25826. -h Print usage summary.
