Thread-topic: [NV-L] Trapd Events

Someone please correct me if I am wrong ( I am also new to Netview)


Your best bet is to remove them at the source. You only want traps coming into Netview that you wish to act upon.


Do you know what product/device is sending them?


Setting up a trap for them is only going to change the formatting of the information; you will still process them through trapd and still have the associated overhead.

Importance: High




First question about netivew....I am new to Netview so people I apologise in advance for any stupid questions.


I have a situation where I'm receiving loads of traps in trapd.log and most of them are similar to the following:


? NO FMT IN TRAPD.CONF: Enterprise ( generic:4 specific:0 args(0):


Now this is what I have done to try and get rid of this problem


I have started xnmtrap and added a new Enterprise Name called Enterprise and an Enterprise ID as and then added an Event Name as Authentication_Error and under generic trap I left that as Enterprise Specific with the specific trap as 0. I reloaded the trapd.conf file with event -e  FMTCHG command and was hoping that this will get rid of the NO FMT bit but I'm still getting then and this whole saga has left in confusion hence my plea for help to you guys who have worked with this product for a while now.


Also is there a way to acknowledge these trap events so that they stop coming into the trapd.log file once you start to action on it or you are aware of the issue ....this is to stop the log file going into some kind of trap storm which inadvertently affects demand poll and quicktest.



All help appreciated.



Many thanks.
