|Error Message:||Process nfdumpd has been stopped to prevent a memory overload.|
In general, this can cause a query for a large amount of flows where sorting or aggregation was used. In that case, not all flows fit in memory, so nfdump was killed by the OOM killer.
You can try to find this query in /data/components/nftools/log/nfdump.log and determine parameters of the query, how much memory it took and which user made this query.
Nfdump process is for a queries to analyze and for a calculating of reports. Some queries are created by concurring an argument and therefore this message is logged. It has no effect on the flowmon functionality.
We recommend use shorter interval for the analysis.
