Problem conclusion

  • Stitchers attempting to send data to ping finder irrespective of
    whether it is running or not. The system needs to be changed
    such that the FullDiscovery stitcher checks to confirm that the
    ping finder is configured to run prior to attempting to send to
    it.
    The same issue that had been fixed in 3.9 by alm133009.
