[IDDBrasil #XSZ-617864]: problems with solon

Hmm... this does not sound good.

This kind of warning in the ~ldm/etc/ldmd.log file indicates that it is taking
a long time to process data out of the LDM queue.  This can occur on heavily
loaded systems where there is alot of I/O, or on systems where there is some
problem writing to disk.  It sounds like you might have the latter problem:
slow writes to disk.  What does top, vmstat, or iostat say about disk I/O?

What does the log file say about connections being refused?

Correct.  The possible reasons for the connection being refused are:

- allows do not include the machine making the request
- datastream being requested is not allowed for the downstream (a refusal for
  one datastream does NOT imply refusal for all datastreams, however)
- a firewall is preventing the request by the downstream from reaching the

I agree completely.  I will be sending you a separate (good) email about your
request for travel assistance.
