- MGR/STV Node Is Collecting the Stats Files
Check the Traffic node(s)
These files are created on the Traffic nodes folder
/var/TextPass/STV/poller/data/. This folder should be empty, as the MGR collects all the files. If you see many files in there, then the MGR/STV has stopped collecting them.
This is Normal
If the folder is empty, then it is working as intended. In this case, you must contact support and provide the details described in the Required Information When Reporting Issue to Lithium Support KB Article.
