While starting a collector the following error occurs:

$avctl start_collector -collname DBAUD_Collector -srcname TEST
AVCTL started
Starting collector...
Error executing task start_collector: Internal Collector TEST:DBAUD_Collector

Checking the collector's log file does not show any meaningful error. To see why the collector is not starting we have to start it directly from the Agent environment:

$ avaudcoll sourcename=<the source name> collectorname=<the name of the collector> avname=<the alias of the AV Server database> hostname=<hostname of the source DB> command=start

This will show that the bottom error is :

CSDK ERROR: On line 554; ORA-01455: converting column overflows integer datatype
