The utility 'statistics_collector.exe' fails with error:

Error message or request description : Required parameter --config is not specified
   at (statistics::start line 735)
   at execute statistics_collector.exe(vconsoleapp::run line 107)
Execute file name: C:\Program Files (x86)\Parallels\Plesk\admin\bin\statistics_collector.exe

To reproduce the issue, execute the 'statistics.exe' utility with the alike parameters:

 C:\Program Files (x86)\Parallels\Plesk\admin\bin>statistics.exe --calculate-one --domain-name=domain.tld 

It will not calculate the statistics. Then look in the event viewer and you will see the error.


The issue is fixed in MU#8 for Plesk Panel 11.5, please make sure latest MU is installed. You can check it in 'C:\PleskInstaller\microupdates.xml'

If microupdate is not installed, please install all microupdates with command below:

c:\ParallelsInstaller>parallels_installer_3.15.13.exe --select-product-id panel --select-release-current --reinstall-patch --install-component base

And recalculate statistics for this domain:

C:\Program Files (x86)\Parallels\Plesk>admin\bin\statistics.exe --calculate-one --domain-name domain.tld
C:\Program Files (x86)\Parallels\Plesk>admin\bin\statistics.exe --generate-domain-webstat --domain-name domain.tld


Issue is caused by code problems which are fixed in Plesk Panel 11.5 MU#8 (140166)
