MWS error: Vector Enumeration

Running 7.1.2. TN/transaction monitoring in MWS was working just fine, then suddenly, when trying to query documents, we got the following:

com.webmethods.portlet.tn.utils.TNException: 9999:wm.tn.portal.queries:getQueryResults encountered execution error. Vector Enumeration

We restarted the MWS service and things seem to be back to normal, but this was disconcerting. Any ideas?

Since the error intermittent and gone after restart, I would say check with SAG support with an incident and escalate it:

HTH,
