Why did the data stop being ingested from Splunk DB connect input?

I was receiving data from Splunk DB inputs however it suddenly stopped. I restarted Splunkd but it didn't help. I have checked logs and found an error as follows:

main:FATAL:JavaBridgeServer - Unable to listen on localhost:17865: java.net.BindException: Address already in use
 java.net.BindException: Address already in use

Please suggest!

Hi,

If anybody comes across this type issue, please check the default task port i.e. 9998 is being used by another service. The simple solution is to change the port of task server exp: 9999 and save the settings which will end up restarting task server.

Thanks
Kashif
