Mike, are you at all suspicious about the true origin of these traps?
Keeping in mind James' (excellent) explanation of the processing, and
adding the business about Optivity front-ending them and forwarding them
to trapd, do you think this is a case of being unable to handle the traps,
it a case of bogus traps being generated? I saw it once, though not at
the combination of code you are at, and and the traps stopped when
we killed the superping processes (I think) at which point I just said
call Bay. Don't remember what they were. You say they are 'all the same'.
What are they?

I have a problem with NetView V5.1.1 and Optivity 8.1.1 on AIX 4.2.1 - all
patches are installed and server works fine, but often we see a great
traps arrving to NetView, they are all the same, then NetView daemons stop
after the other because they can't bufferize anymore and NetView GUI stops,
NetView is in bad state.
I know that traps should be stopped at the source, but I don't own all the
network equipements, and I have to live with them coming...
Can anyone tell me if he had this problem with Netview ? where should I
looking ? what can I do to protect NetView from going down ?
