+collectd-systemd is a collectd plugin to read some basic stats from
+systemd. Currently, it reads how many units are in each state
+(inactive/activating/active/reloading/deactivating/failed), how many
+jobs have ever been installed, how many jobs are currently queued, and
+how many jobs have failed.
+ - systemd (obviously)
+ - collectd (obviously), compiled with Python support
+ - python (2 or 3; whichever version collectd was compiled with)
+ - python-dbus
+The standard GNU process (`./configure --prefix=/usr && make && sudo make install`),
+but instead of running `./configure`, just edit `config.mk` to taste.
+To enable it, add `Include "/usr/share/collectd/systemd.conf"` (or
+similar, based on your configured file paths) to your `collectd.conf`.
