And there are two sources for the contents of NetView traps in UNIX.  One
is the description in trapd.conf.  The Service traps were recently updated
via maintenance, so you should make sure you have the latest FixPack.
The other in Appendix  A of The NetView Administrator's Guide, which was
also recently updated.   The updates to the books will not be shipped until
the next full release, but you can find them here,


On Windows, there is no trap description in trapd.conf, so you have to rely
on the published documentation.  Trap contents are documented in Appendix D
of the User's Guide.

Hey Bernhard,

The location of trap variables ($1, $2 etc) are dependent on the particular
trap.  An easy way to find which vars are which is to generate the trap
with the popup set to $* - this will list all the variables that the trap

      Hi !

      I have a simple question :

      I'm configuring the Tivoli NetView TRAPs in my system, but I can't
      find in any documentation what should be :

      $1, $2, $3, $4, $5, $6 ...

      I just found $2 - Machine name ... but now I need to configure
      ServiceDown Traps ... then I need Service name and Service Status,
      etc ...
