The problem turned out to be that the variables are multi-word and I was not 
enclosing the var names in quotes in the action node in the rule. Consequently 
when they got to the script and were used as vars $1, $2 etc I was getting each 
word of the first few variables passed by the rule in each of the receiving 
variables and ran out of receiving variables before I even got the NVATTR_3. 
Enclosing each var in quotes in the rule fixed things.

Thanks for clarifying the variables though.

Cheers - Gavin

You've confused me.  What stuff are you trying to get exactly?

The third NetView trap variable contains the exact display text for Node Up and
Node Down events, unless you have changed trapd.conf to display something else,
so $NVATTR_3 should give you that.  If you have changed it, then you will have
to re-construct that in your script.  In other words, if you changed trapd.conf
to display "Holy smokes, batman, we have a $3"  then you action script is only
going to get the value of  that third variable in "$NVATTR_3" and you would have
to add the additional text yourself.  Is that the question you are asking?
