yes, that sounds a bit like an endian issue. We used to have an endian
problem with double values which was fixed in 4.2.5 and 4.3.1 (and all
later versions).

Are *all* values sent from Linux to Solaris NaN or just some of them?
Especially, can you check if you see a pattern between counter values
(CPU usage, network and disk I/O) and gauge values (memory usage, DF

Did you cross-compile the daemon? I.e. did you compile it on a x86
machine for a SPARC architecture or something similar? In this case the
configure script cannot determine the endianness of the target platform

Is the data sent by Solaris machines stored correctly on the Linux
server? This is a combination I have several times and know to work.
Generally, at least, there's always room for more bugs I'm afraid ;)
