Metric Prefix

When you import the dasbhoard you will have to specify your collectd metric prefix, this is by defauilt just collectd. The dashboard assumes the following metric structure $prefix.$server.memcached.... So if you have a non standard collectd prefix like prod.cacheservers then specify that in the prefix field when you import the dashboard. During import when you specify the prefix do not include the last dot (.).
