What kind of switch is it?  If it's a Cisco Catalyst, there are a variety of settings that can impact the type and volume of traps it might send.

Yes there are equal number of Type-2 and Type-3 messages, the damn switch is sending a message for every node that goes down, and as its a LAN so when ever any one shuts down his PC the switch sends this trap. i ve manually disable the switch to send any kind of traps lets what happens... Thanks for your response!

Re: [nv-l] What is Default FMT:TEST??

I would expect if you are getting a lot of generic type 2 messages you
are also
receiveing a large number of generic type 3 messages. It sounds like you
a link that is trying to (re)establish a link to something(WAN?) and is
and (re)tries on a regular basis to reconnect. This would have an almost
number of type 2 and type 3 messages. If you are only receiving type 2
I would think something is misconfigured on the device itself. Have you
the configuration of the switch to see if it is actually configured to
send traps to
NetView, or possibly to another network manager that is sending them to
I can tell you from the trap information that you should take a look at
what is on
Interface(port?) 21(ifIndex) and that it is reporting Administratively
Up, but
Operationally down.
