Thanks Joel & James....

  I think the problem I have with the "session to node" down is minor
because I notice that if I don't use the Alias name (which is defined in
the Alias Table) but use the specific IP address instead, I am able to
collect stats.

  the biggest headache I have right now is that the MLM stores all stats
collected in one file.
