Error in minemeld on U16.04 from fresh ansible install

Hi,

 

I have a new vm on U16.04 and have installed the latest minemeld using the minemeld-ansible.

 

Once all setup and running it was fine but about 20 mins later where I did nothing as I left my desk I came back to 

 

"ERROR RETRIEVING MINEMELD METRICS: INTERNAL SERVER ERROR"

 

Alerts on the screen 3 times.

I have tried restarting the service and completely restarting the vm but that has not resolved the errors. 

 

Any help would be appreciated.

Please, could you share the API Logs file? You can download it from the Webui System > API > Logs

Hi @WetaSystems,

it seem that collectd is not running. Could you try with "sudo systemctl start collectd"  from the shell?

 

Thanks,

Hey,

 

I checked at it had been running since its last reboot. about 3 days

I tried to restart the service just to see if that would help and got this error

Jul 03 07:49:16 inf-pv-mm02 collectd[6610]: Filter subsystem: Built-in target `write': Some write plugin is back to normal operation. `write' succeeded.

 

I then had to do a full reboot of the machine to get it running again. 

 

But I still get the same 3 errors on the screen saying internal server error

Something looks wrong with your collectd config. The file /etc/collectd/collectd.conf should look similar to this:
