Carlo Landmeter on IRC indeed suggested me it was shipped with the collectd
But when i checked, it was not (see screen cap in attachment, there is not
a plugin until i install "my" collectd-libvirt package a 2:57
the next day).
I will install a new 2.7 vserver and double check that, just to be sure.

The APKBUILD already contains the libvirt-dev makedepend (since this commit
but it seems the plugin is not included in the collectd compilation or file

thanks, I made the package, installed the .apk and looks it works for me.
I just thought I'd share :-)

I'll double check whether the current collectd package contains the plugin and will post my findings.
