purple problem

This question has been answered by angel

I'm having issues with intermittent purple status on some built-in and external tests.

Usually they clear just a couple of minutes after going purple.

Tests that are going purple include:
xxx.conn (where xxx is the host that bigbrother itself lives on..the bbdisplay hosts...why/how would this ever go purple)?

xxx.http (where xxx is the bbdisplay host..being tested from the bbdisplay host)...again, how/why would this ever happen?

Any ideas?

thanks.

  • Bob,

    You sure you don't have any empty files: ie. bb-msgstab

    I had the same problem went away when I populated the bb-msgstab file.

  • I am also experiencing this intermittant problem.

    BB version 4.30 and 4.40

    The only persistant errors in the BBOUT log are "Unable to extract perf data....." which does not appear to be related to the issue.
