This message occurs when the perfstat daemon (perfstatd) startup fails. This failure impacts the continuous archiving of performance data that technical support uses to troubleshoot performance issues.
- Corrective Action
The startup failure might be due to improper permissions for the '/mroot/etc/log' directory or a full disk. Verify that the permissions of the '/mroot/etc/log' directory are 'rwxr-xr-x' by executing the 'fsecurity show /vol/vol0/etc/log' command from the nodeshell. Verify that the '/mroot' file system is not full. After fixing the cause of the failure, restart perfstatd by executing the 'spmctl -e -h perfstatd' command from the freebsd shell.
