Overview

This article provides brief information on rebooting LEM for troubleshooting.

Environment

All LEM deployments

Detail

LEM is a Linux-based hardened-appliance that has been virtualized.

 

Common misconception: Rebooting LEM fixes issues.

Fact: A reboot rarely fixes any problem, but may delay getting to the cause for why the reboot was considered.

 

A reboot will do the following:

  1. Clear out cached log data.
  2. Re-connect all agents after it starts up.

 

A reboot may be required when all other troubleshooting has failed, or recommended by SolarWinds Support.

Otherwise, if you changed the hostname, changed the network configurations, or imported a "backupconfig" (used for migrating to different VM platform, disaster recovery testing, or to restore the rules/groups).
