I am running influxdb on a redhat machine , now it was running fine for last 200 days or so, suddenly it starts giving below error.
Failed to connect to http://localhost:8086: Get http://localhost:8086/ping: dial tcp [::1]:8086: getsockopt: connection refused
Please check your connection settings and ensure ‘influxd’ is running.
When i check service influxdb status it shows service is running but port 8086 is not listed in netstat -ntlp.
It works for few minutes after restart the service and few minutes later same thing happens.
Nothing in /var/log/influxdb. version of influx is 1.5.3
