Proxy Errors

Error Reason Resolution
You see "java: command not found" in wavefront.log. Java is either not installed, or is not in your path. Install Java using your local package manager, and make sure that your path includes the Java binary.
You see "Cannot fetch daemon configuration from remote server: org.jboss.resteasy.client.exception.ResteasyIOException: IOException" in wavefront.log. You may have an incorrect server URL in your wavefront.conf file; you may have blocked the outgoing connection to that server URL (port 443); or the Wavefront servers may be down. Run curl <wavefrontServerUrl> from the machine running the proxy, where <wavefrontServerUrl> is the full URL (including "https://) provided to you by Wavefront and in your wavefront.conf file.
You see "Cannot post work unit result to Wavefront servers. Will enqueue and retry later." in wavefront.log. You may have an incorrect server URL in your wavefront.conf file; you may have blocked the outgoing connection to that server URL (port 443). Run curl <wavefrontServerUrl> from the machine running the proxy, where <wavefrontServerUrl> is the full URL (including "https://") provided to you by Wavefront and in your wavefront.conf file.
You see "Exception in thread "main" java.lang.UnsupportedClassVersionError: com/sunnylabs/GraphiteValidator : Unsupported major.minor version 51.0" in wavefront.log. You are using Java 1.6 or lower instead of Java 1.7. Upgrade Java to 1.7 through your local package manager.
You see "Exception in thread "Thread-2" java.net.BindException: Address already in use" in wavefront.log. You already have another process listening on port 2878, or may have started two proxies accidentally. Use the ps command to find and kill any existing proxies, and then start the proxy again.
You can't run telnet localhost 2878; the connection is refused. Ensure that you don't have an iptables rule blocking the traffic. Ensure that the proxy is running. Ensure that you are running telnet localhost 2878 on the machine where the proxy is running. Use the ps command to make sure that the proxy is running, and examine your iptables rules to ensure that TCP port 2878 is accessible locally.
