Monitoring of Java Virtual Machines with JMX: Is Splunk going down because of the python script in this app?

Explorer

In my Environment, Splunk is going down on its own and in errors we find below error messages at the time of when Splunk went down.
So, my question "Does Splunk go down because of any script and how does this script play a role to Splunk going down?".
Because of these errors, we disabled the Monitoring of Java Virtual Machines with JMX (Splunk for JMX) app, after this Splunk is working fine. Please suggest me how we can use Splunk for JMX without any issues?

You malformed your configuration XML file.
Ensure that the XML is correctly formed and in adherence with the schema in the Documentation (SPLUNK4JMX/appserver/static/docs/configuration_schema/config.pdf)

It is part of the core release.I cant speak for your deployment environment and where you've put your files.

Focus on your core problem , you XML file is misconfigured or malformed XML.

Post you XML in this thread. Someone can look at it.
