Type in xnmsnmpconf from the command line as root, select it from the GUI 
Options --> SNMP Configuration.   All this is controlled from there.  What 
you are talking about is altering the Timeouts and Retry counts for status 
polling.     If you have never made changes here before, then highlight 
the one entry for the Global Default and make changes to that, changing 
the target into your address ranges (which should not overlap).  Then use 
the Add button to add your new selection.  It will appear in the IP 
Wildcard section.    Individual nodes go in the Node, section; entries 
controlled by smartset membership in the bottom.
I'm not aware of any examples on the web, but there is online help from 
the xnmsnmpconf GUI, assuming that you installed the books.  That will 
give you the field-level help that I think you are looking for.

Hope this helps.

I need to modify polling  characteristics for Unix nodes being managed by 
NetView.  Currently I have a bunch of false positives because of network 
congestion or some other factor. the snmp trap is netview6000  58916865. I 
would like the device to fail two polls before a trap is sent.  I believe 
this should be done through the snmp configuration GUI 
(/usr/OV/conf/ovsnmp.conf_db file).  Looking at chapter 6 of the manual 
it's not really clear to me what I need to change.  I have the address 
ranges I am after.   Is there an example anywhere on the WEB, I can't be 
the first customer interested in doing this.  I searched the WEB and 
mailing archives and came up emtpy.   Is my request possible? 

Thanks in advance,
