    IDS/IPS multiple errors

      After update of s/w versions from 4.* to 5.* (current ver. both for Sensor and Manager) we begin to receive multiple alerts with SNMP traps about:


      • Alert channel is down
      • Communication failure with the Network Security Platform Update Server
      • DB Connectivity Problems
      • Packet log channel is down
      • Sensor is unreachable
      • Sensor reports that the packet log channel is down


      Approximately about 300-400 events per week.


      We thought that possible cause: lack of capacity of network equipment (sensor with manager aren't connect directly). Though, after updating of equipment this problem wasn't resolved - alerts are still received.


      Any ideas why is this happening? Can we trust the work of Sensor if Manager can't rich em?
