I just had multiple HPUX Virtual hosts and servers go PURPLE at the same

                HOSTS OF VIRTUALS:      8

                VIRTUALS:                         39


All of the hosts continued to answer a PING through the 20 minutes.

The hosts stopped sending in ICON info for around 20 minutes from subnet

All this traffic should be over port 1984.

All of the *NIX admins were in training during this time.

There were no reports of service interruption from the users.

After ALERTING of the PURPLE status, the hosts then received the client
info and went GREEN.


None of the other Windows or *NIX servers had a problem.


Has anyone experienced this before?


I am running Xymon 4.3.0-0.beta2 on CentOS on Dell R-610 server.
