I checked the hobbit.sh script - the line is exactly right, no typo's, and the path's are valid.

Hobbit is installed in /hobbit/ becasuse RH and apache wouldn't play nice when I first installed to /home/hobbit.  (I am sure this was a mistake I was making, but installing to /hobbit fixed all my problems)

The original hobbit build was compiled from source (v4.0.4) a few months ago, and it has run pretty much without a single problem for a while.  I followed the install guide step by step for the original build, and nothing seems to have changed on that page since.

It really has been fine until last week; which interestingly co-incided with some problems we were having with battery backup units which caused some problems on the Windows servers in the same rack.  Could this be related?

It's not usual to install hobbit in /hobbit. 
Perhaps did you forget one of the installation tasks described at http://hobbitmon.sourceforge.net/docs/install.html
I guess that some settings aren't good in your hobbit.sh starting script. 

How did you install hobbit : 
- rpm 
- compilation from sources 

check your hobbit.sh script for a ligne which looks like 
~hobbit/server/bin/hobbitlaunch --config=~hobbit/server/etc/hobbitlaunch.cfg --env=~hobbit/server/etc/hobbitserver.cfg --log=/var/log/hobbit/hobbitlaunch.log --idfile=/var/log/hobbit/hobbitlaunch.pid

(just replace the ~hobbit with your full path to hobbir dir). 

Hope this'll help.

Objet : [hobbit] Memory Leak?

Hi All -
Am getting an error in my log files (hobbitlaunch.log):
"Configuration error, unknown dependency xxx"
Where xxx = bbstatus ->hobbitd
            = bbhistory ->hobbitd (etc etc for all of them)
And after those errors "Cannot open env file /hobbit/server/etc/hobbitserver.cfg" - no such file or directory.
The trick is - I have checked the path, and it's all absolutely correct (in addition to which I have not changed a thing since t stopped working)
This started happening when I was running 4.0.4, but have since updated (re-installed) version 4.1.1 over the top in a failed attempt to fix it...
Anyone have any ideas before my trigger happy colleagues make me ghost it back to the stone ages?  (FYI - I am a total Linux novice.)  I ram running RH 9 if that makes a difference...
Thanks in advance...
