Re: X-Server crashes traversing NetView topology
What level of AIX are you running?
I have worked with NetView since V4 was right out of the box and I have never
seen anything such as you describe. In fact, nothing NetView does as an
X-client should in any way affect the X-server. AIX should have code which
prevents the X-server from crashing no matter what fool thing a client might do.
I would open a problem to AIX and get whatever patches exist for your level of X
and see what that does. If you are not up to speed on Netview PTFs I would get
those too, but there is nothing in them that I know of for your problem.
The latest NetView levels are these:
U459387 (server 12/11/98) U459388 (client 12/11/98)
U462279 (server 10/01/99) U462280 (client 10/01/99)
lslpp -ha nv6000.base.obj will show you what you have

Subject: X-Server crashes traversing NetView topology
Recently, we've been receiving the following errors from our X-Client processes:
XIO: fatal IO error 32 (Broken pipe) on X server ":0.0" after # requests
(# known processed) with 0 events remaining.
The connection was probably broken by a server shutdown or KillClient.
The entire X-Server crashes. In some instances, we receive the following errors
on the screen after the X-Server shutdown:
Garbage collection failed.
1356-815/usr/bin/x11/xinit: connection to x server lost
The "1356-815/usr/bin/x11/xinit: connection to x server lost" error is specific
to the X-Server. We've researched the AIX/X documentation and found that this
error code (815) is a display related, floating-point error.
This problem only seems to occur when a user attempts to open submaps and
"drill-down" through our NetView topology map. We are using NetView ver 4.1 for
AIX and would appreciate any suggestions.
