Environment

RedHat Linux

Situation

On some Linux installations, collectors do not send events to the collector-manager. Collector start/stop event is sent but no real events are shown either in Data Base or console. The debugger will show that collector is parsing events.

Resolution

The localhost definition is not set to Loopback addresses in the /etc/network or /etc/hosts file. Connector can not establish connection if the localhost line is not set.
