Getting Data In

What can be the effects of rebooting a server without taking the forwarder down cleanly?

Many of the forwarders here go down when the servers go for maintenance work. What can go wrong with the forwarders when we don't shut them down cleanly?

I think the main thing that can happen is that they wont start up properly.
other then that, if you have scripted inputs, the scripts wont run, for monitor data, you will resume to (or close) the point where the forwarder stopped.
if its using as an aggregation, meaning. intermediate forwarder, then youll probably lose data
