I'm using LMS and IPM 2.6. I've set up collectors and targets and have been successfully getting daily latency and jitter data. However, I've seen IPM fail to place the data from the collectors into it's database twice within about two weeks.
I've verified that the collectors are still collecting data during the outages although the web view gives zeros for the previous day's stats. The first time I had the problem, I did see an error in the log indicating that the DataCollectionServer failed to process stats. I did an "ipm restart" and after coming back up the log showed that data was being processed again. Two weeks or so later of successful collection and reporting, I found that the web report didn't show stats but the IPM log didn't show any errors.
The last significant entries in the log are, "Data for 'Monday Feb 25, 2008' have been successfully consolidated.
Data Consolidation and Aging has been successfully finished."
Then I get the lines about polling and the following, "ConfigServer.4712 | Info | Scheduling reconfiguration. Trying to reconfigure any failed collectors.. ".
I did another "ipm restart" and the data is successfully being placed into the database again today.
My question is, will I need to restart IPM on a regular basis? Is this a log limit issue? I don't think so because the log continues to report even if data isn't placed into the database. The documentation says that that IPM should retain daily data for up to 180 days. Perhaps something else is wrong?
Any advice would be appreciated.
