`ReadTimeout` and `SuspendTime` control whats happening when a device is
unavailable. If no value could be retrieved for `ReadTimeout` seconds, the
plugin does not retry for `SuspendTime` seconds. After that, normal operation
is resumed. This procedure ensures that an unreachable device does not block
other devices (too often) in the current single-threaded architecture.
If not specified, `ReadTimeout` is 30 seconds and `SuspendTime` is 5 minutes.
Make sure that everything listed in `requirements.txt` is available to the user
running collectd.
