Description :Some history charts display n/a values on some metrics, if we retry to display it, it usually works fine
Environment:
OS: IBM AS/400
Cause:
Cause type:
Defect
Root Cause: N/A
Resolution:
In order to fix the issue a new retry mechanism has been created so in case the file can not be opened, we retry later.
To do so, after installing the agent version 5.60a you need to set the following on the SLDFSD_INIT file:

############################
[COMM]
MaxHstOpenFileFailureNo=100
HstOpenFileRetryTimeoutMsecs=500
############################

Then restart the file-server.
