Bug Description

Users who are debugging unrelated issues are frequently interpreting the following as an indication that os-collect-config is misconfigured when the warning is actually harmless:

WARNING os_collect_config.heat [-] No auth_url configured.
WARNING os_collect_config.request [-] No metadata_url configured.
WARNING os-collect-config [-] Source [request] Unavailable.
WARNING os_collect_config.local [-] /var/lib/os-collect-config/local-data not found. Skipping
WARNING os_collect_config.local [-] No local metadata found (['/var/lib/os-collect-config/local-data'])

A better experience would be to log as INFO and log something regardless of whether the collector is configured or not.
