Bug Description

A number of the base checks access /proc. On a busy site with lots of containers, the lxcfs proxy for /proc gets busy enough to cause problems for the host.

Since there's no value in statistics for mem, cpu etc., within LXD containers, but there is value for the Telegraf subordinate so we can relate to other items such as mysql, I'd like to automatically disable the base plugins that are not useful if the charm is running in an LXD container.
