proxy_plugin - Plugin to proxy connections to another process speaking the munin-node protocol.
The typical use-case for this is to proxy requests to for example a JBoss application server, without giving up the ability to run local plugins from munin-node as well.
The following environment settings are the default configuration.
[<pluginname>] env.proxyto localhost env.proxyport 4950 env.proxyservice <pluginname>
The plugin is currently hardcoded to require multigraph. There may be usecases in the future where a non-multigraph version is useful.
There is no detection of loops - if the plugin is pointed back at itself, infinite recursion is assured.
There is no timeout for sending and receiving data. The plugin relies on munin-node to properly kill it if it runs too long.
