Jason Kravitz,

You mentioned that SEA 1.0.2 was more stable and compliant with NetView.  I
have had a problem where our CPU hitting 100 % and staying there.  This has
happened multiple times and I have narrowed it down to the DMI process.
When I look at the release notes for 1.0.3

http://www.sun.com/solstice/products/ent.agents/docs/releasehtml/release_not
es103.doc.html
<http://www.sun.com/solstice/products/ent.agents/docs/releasehtml/release_no
tes103.doc.html>
it states
                Bugs fixed in this release
                4112330:
                Desc: DMI service provider spins out of control consuming
100% of idle CPU when servicing a longer service request
It seems that we don't have much of a alternative but to go to 1.0.3 to
solve this problem.  My testing is on an Ultra 1 Solaris 3.6 system.  For
production we are planning on an SUN E450.

Please advise.

I captured some information below on vmstat.

# vmstat 5
 procs     memory            page            disk          faults      cpu

When I stop the dmispd process it clears up the CPU problem.

# ./init.dmi stop
# vmstat 5

I'd recommend using 1.0.2 - this seems to be the most stable and compliant
with
NetView

I am installing NetView 5.1.1 on a Solaris 2.6 system.  Is there a
recommendation or a requirement to utilize a specific version of the
Solstice Enterprise Agents in this environment?  Currently version 1.0.1 is
running on the system.  I have seen that version 1.0.2 and 1.0.3 are
available per the SUN website.
Thanks for your assistance.
