Environment

AppMon: 5.0 z/OS CICS agent

Strobe 4.4 and later

Symptoms

During z/DC collector initialization, the following message appears: Event channel reconnect failed: Exception while connecting to collector, info:<Could not register agent with collector as instrumentation channel is not yet connected

Solution

These message can be ignored and are normal consequences of an agent-server disconnect issue. It's believed the disconnects were caused by an overloaded AppMon collector box.
