Some things to try if you encounter problems with this data collector:

Problem: Try this:

I received an error similar to this one:
'Failed to execute request: Connect to <AWS region endpoint>:8080 [<AWS region endpoint>/AWS region endpoint IP>] failed: connect timed out: GET https://<AWS Region Endpoint FQDN>:8080/v1/Storage/IPRanges HTTP/1.1'

The proxy used by Cloud Insights to communicate with the Acquisition Unit does not communicate between Cloud Insights and the Data Collector itself. Here are a few things you can try:

Ensure that the acquisition unit is able to resolve the fqdn and reach the required port.
Confirm that a proxy is not required to reach the specified endpoint in the error message.
Curl can be used to test the communication between the acquisition unit and the endpoint. Make sure that you are not using a Proxy for this test.


root@acquisitionunit# curl -s -H accept:application/json -H "Content-type: application/json" -H api-key:<api key used in the data collector credentials -H secret-key:<secret key used in the data collector credentials> -X GET https://<AWS Regional Endpoint>:8080/v1/Storage/IPRanges
