The JCollectdCollector is capable of receiving Collectd network traffic as sent by the JCollectd jvm agent (and child Collectd processes).

Reason for developing this collector is allowing to use JCollectd, without the need for Collectd.

A few notes:

This collector starts a UDP server to receive data. This server runs in a separate thread and puts it on a queue, waiting for the collect() method to pull. Because of this setup, the collector interval parameter is of less importance. What matters is the 'sendinterval' JCollectd parameter.
