Cannot send data to the repository.
Error in nqmAgt.log: 'Unable to send data. Queue full. Data text:'


To limit the queue:

  1. In a text editor, open netiq/UnixAgent/etc/uaconf.xml.
  2. Change the value between the <MAX_SIZE> and </MAX_SIZE> tags for the appropriate queues.  This value represents the number of bytes to limit the queue to. For instance, to limit the data queue to 1.5 megabytes, you would have a line reading:

  3. Save the file.
  4. Edit your nqmdaemon script and add the Cold Start Flag to your startup options.
  5. Restart the agent.
  6. If you want, remove the cold start flag from nqmdaemon.

The queue is full. Log entries found in NqmAgt.log will read similar to this:

Unable to send data.  Queue full.  Data text:

Instead of "Data", the appropriate queue will be listed.  Valid queues are:

  • Data, default value of 150000000 (150 million bytes)
  • Event, default value of 75000000 (75 million bytes)
  • Exception, default value of 15000000 (15 million bytes)
  • Status, default value of 10000000 (10 million bytes)
