"Count of targets not uploading exceeded the critical threshold (0). Current value: 1"

"Count of targets not uploading exceeds critical threshold"

2) The emdiag kit repvfy command "repvfy verify -level 9 -detail"  returns   "132. Targets not uploading any data"

3) Additionally: The result of the following query in the repository database (as user 'sysman') may return negative values:-

SELECT host_url, value
FROM mgmt_oms_parameters
WHERE name = 'loaderOldestFile';

4) However, it can be seen in the Grid Control console, that the agent is uploading correctly.  To check this:-

To check the "last successful upload" time of the agent:
cd $ORACLE_HOME<ofagent>/bin
./emctl status agent
