    Hello All,

    I am running cflowd on a Solaris 2.6.1 Sparc machine. I am using flowwatch
    to record data for some ad-hoc analysis but find that sometimes it dies with
    the above message. I have read the FAQs etc and have also read the
    flowwatch.cc source code but still cannot fathom what is causing this
    problem. I expect that it may be due to DoS or source-routed address or
    suchlike?

    Can anyone help me out here? Cflow is a great tool and normally runs very
    reliably. When the above event occurred the cfdcollect process running on
    the same box also died.

    Thanks
    Brett.
