    Various EM problems start occurring with EMs

  •    EM fail to startup
  •    EMs get hung or respond slowly for a period of time. In some cases, a restart may be needed
  •    After a network 'glitch', the Enterprise Manager becomes unresponsive and often does not recover and needs to be restarted. 
  •    The MOM keeps disconnecting from the collectors or the collectors stop communicating with the MOM.
  •    High spikes in harvest durations.


Closer investigation finds 

        1. The Perflog shows a gap of 10 or 20 minutes.

        2. Messages in the EM Log such as

EMs running APM 10.1 and 10.2 . This is fixed in APM 10.3


EM hangs due to large amount of Agents connecting at same time. Various temporary connection and performance issues may manifest this issue.



 This is fixed in APM 10.3. Earlier releases have hotfixes available --10.1 HF#25, 10.2 HF#24
