A review of the a.log indicates an excessive amount of the following errors:
<![CDATA[CDllQuery::GenerateQuery Error: failed to load library NSServerMetric_6_0.dll, Error=126
<event date='Oct 02 19:38:25' severity='1' hostName='CTNAMDCALTNS1' source='MetricProvider' module='AeXMetricProv.exe' process='AeXMetricProv.exe' pid='3108' thread='6016' tickCount='201171765' >
These errors started to occur after the Altiris infrastructure Monitor pack was installed.
These metrics use the NSServerMetric_6_0.dll as its metric source to obtain values for notification server event queue file count information.
This particular metric source (NSServerMetric_6_0.dll) is rolled out as part of a package rollout policy. It is not enabled by default. A screenshot of the package rollout policy is shown here:
If this policy is not enabled and the package is not rolled out, the NSServerMetric_6_0.dll Metric Source will not be available. The metrics shown above will be attempted to be polled but there will be noMetric source available. The reason for this problem is that the Monitor Solution Application Detection process is not designed to detect the presence of this DLL.
