Sorry but I don't know about AIX 5.2 specifically.  But you might be able 
to run a standard iptrace specifying port 161/udp to keep the output 
small, and format it with iprpt so you can see what's what.  There are man 
pages on both commands.  You could match that with the snmp.log if you 
cannot quite make out what MIB variable is being asked for.

On Windows, I think your best bet might also be a packet capture tool as 
well.  Our Level 2 folks tell me that Ethereal is good and it is free off 
the web.

Good morning list: 
I have 2 questions for you this morning. 
NetView Server: 
AIX: 5.2 
NV: 7.1.3 
I am receiving many authentication failures in NetView that I am trying to 
track down. 
I have configured snmpd with logging LEVEL=3 to capture everything to a 
log file. 
The source address of the bad SNMP request is not logged as it was on AIX 
1. Is something misconfigured or has this feature been removed from the 
AIX v5 SNMP agent? 
2. Does anyone know of a utility to capture this data in the windows
