The environment:
RS6000 43P/240 (dual process) 320 Mbytes RAM
AIX 4.2.1       Netview 5.0

We noticed a huge size increase in our ovwdb; the ovobjprint | head -1
shows 13909 defined objects in the database when we usually have no more
than 8000 objects.

        The following file is over 1 Gbyte in size, which is abnormal. Checking
the backups of our DB's this file usually sits around 40 Mbytes.

        ls -l  /usr/OV/databases/openview/ovwdb/current/value_info.pag
        -rwxrwxrwx   1 root     bin      1003954176 Jun 24 15:52

When we run some db utilities like ovtopofix -Cv there seems to be a lot of
objects that are not in any topology maps. Below part of the output of this
command:

magicolor (112242) -- not in any maps, updating times.
magicolor:QMS (112241) -- not in any maps, updating times.
        Updating magicolor (objid = 112242)
 5730/6438 ) WLADEK.eas.ualberta.ca (112244)
WLADEK (112244) -- not in any maps, updating times.
WLADEK:129.128.66.163 (112243) -- not in any maps, updating times.
        Updating WLADEK (objid = 112244)
 5731/6438 ) TORYGR08.eas.ualberta.ca (112246)
TORYGR08 (112246) -- not in any maps, updating times.
TORYGR08:129.128.66.162 (112245) -- not in any maps, updating times.
        Updating TORYGR08 (objid = 112246)
 5732/6438 ) admintest.eas.ualberta.ca (112248)
admintest (112248) -- not in any maps, updating times.
admintest:129.128.66.160 (112247) -- not in any maps, updating times.
        Updating admintest (objid = 112248)

Making the story short; there seems to be thousands objects in our ovwdb
that don't appear to be present in any topology maps. If this is the case
how can I get rid of them. I already ran the smit option 'resolve database
inconsistencies' with no luck.

Thanks for any help.
