Thanks for the tips James. Yesterday nvUtil commands weren't coming back
at all and after the daemon refresh it is just returning slowly. I will
make some checks and see what I can find.

I think you mean
NetView 7.1.4 AIX 5.2

There's a big difference between "never comes back" and "takes a long
to return".  The latter indicates a performance problem, and to solve
you need to look at what else is going on in the system at the time and
what other things use smartsets.  Got rulesets accessing smartsets too?
How about xnmsnmpconf?  snmpCollect?

One other thing to remember.  nvcold gets his information from ovwdb.
Smartsets, after all, are just objects in the database with various
attributes set.  So anything that slows down ovwdb could slow down
Does ovobjprint work OK when this happens?  Is you ovwdb cache size
than the number of objects ovobjprint -S shows you?  You wouldn't
necessarily have to add a new smartset to cause things to slow down.  It
might be sufficient to add many new members to exisiting ones or
significantly add new objects to the database.

             Please respond to





NetView 6.1.4 AIX 5.2

I am having an issue where nvcold quits responding. It still shows as
running but when I try and run nvUtil commands it either never comes
or takes a long time to return. I recycled all of the daemons 2 times
yesterday and the issue keeps coming back. I haven't added any new
Smartsets. Any suggestions?
