The command you want to trace nvcorrd is nvcdebug.  It is documented and
there is a man page on it.
The most common way to use it is by issuing  nvcdebug -d all from the
command line.  The output goes to the nvcorrd.alog and .blog.  If you want
to see the output of your actions, you need to look in the nvaction.alog
and .blog.

The problem you describe is most likely caused by a "bad" ruleset in
ESE.automation.  Rulesets in ESE.automation do not have a display
associated with them, so they should not have any Forward or Resolve nodes
in them, and more importantly, they should not have the initial event
stream node (the "purple pizza" ) set to "Pass".   If you have rulesets in
ESE.automation, I would edit them with the graphical editor and click on
the initial node just to make sure.

Hello there I'm running netview version 5 on a rs6000 240 dual processor
under AIX 4.2

Here is the problem. It happens twice that rulesets do not get to be
process and the nvevent display does not show any events; the only way to
solve this problem is through stop/restart ovactiond, nvserverd, and
nvcorrd. Reading the manuals it seems as if the problem is with nvcorrd,
but I can not find what is wrong with it; the nvcorrd.log does not show any
thing abnormal; actually the only lines in the log are the initialization
and the level 11/13 of the daemon. Is there any debug level for this daemon
that can show me a bit more information? the rulesets call scripts that
alarm on abnormal behavior of devices; therefore when I have this problem
the computer room operators don't have a clue of what is going on.

        Any ideas in what is going on would be appreciatte.
