article Error: Address already in use

If up.time can not bind to a specific port, it will write an error to the uptime.log file and you will not be able to connect to the up.time web interface.  This exception (see example below) appears when starting the up.time data collector service under the following scenarios:

  1. The up.time data collector is already running or is using the wrong port.  In this case, open the httpd.conf file in a text editor, find the Listen xxxx line and set xxxx to the appropriate port number.
  2. Another service is using the up.time data collector port (9995 default).  In this case, determine which service is using the same port and adjust port settings to resolve the conflict.

Example Exception:
