If the EventDaemon keeps restarting try the following:
1. Looking for rogue EventDaemon processes and killing them (hint the EventDaemon process for java is spelt incorrectly - EventDeamon)
2. Stop all message channels and daemons. Start the daemons up one by one, ensuring the EventDaemon connects.
- Could be related to a problem with a message channel such as an alert with strange characters in it.
