Thanks. We are seeing it happen randomly across 17 RB3011UiAS-RM. It only happens every day or 2 and only happens to 1 or 2 units each time. The version of Rancid we are running was a fresh install on a new machine about 30 days ago, so wondering if it is something not setup correctly or if it is a bug with the plugins.
