  3. In your log do you see messages like this: KVLAL1045E PERFORMANCE TOOLKIT COLLECTOR PROCESSING TIMED OUT (58D0A5FE.0000-2:kvlptkc.cpp,430,"copyData") KVLAL1046I PERFORMANCE TOOLKIT COLLECTOR RESUMES PROCESSING This shows that the Performance Toolkit shut down for some some period of time and then started back up.
