  Exceptions (MCE) and dispatches notifications. Metadata reset.
- MQTT plugin: Add support for TLS in "Subscriber" blocks.

  by the process, not just disk related I/O. Same for "io_ops"
  (previously "ps_disk_ops"). The new metric "disk_octets" \ 
has been
  added and is reporting disk I/O only. Add option to collect the count
  of active memory maps for Linux processes. The "CollectFileDescriptor"

  counters. Fixed invalid data source type.
- virt plugin: The plugin has been updated to use
