Hi @cchokshi,

Thanks for your question and for providing the log message, that was very helpful!

The errors you have reported typically indicate an issue with the Infrastructure agent’s communication being blocked by the network from reaching New Relic endpoints. If the agent encounters these errors, it simply caches the data and tries again up to a certain point.

In order to report data to New Relic, our infrastructure monitoring needs outbound access to a list of domains, networks, and ports which can be found in our documentation here:
