Offhand, no.  But I do know how to find out.   You can issue the trace command,
nvcdebug -d all , and after that nvcorrd will trace his activity to the
nvcorrd.alog and .blog   The traces are not documented any where but you should
see what the enterprise Id is on the incoming traps and whether the ruleset
resolves that to FALSE or to TRUE as a match.    Perhaps that will give you a
clue.    If you can ovstop netmon while you do this, even better, as there will
be much less data in the trace.

But don't worry if the trace is a bit daunting.  You can always open a problem
to Support and get help reading it.

Subject:  Ruleset Problems

Hello Everyone,

I am having a problem with getting a page sent out when a device goes down
that's being monitored in my map. Basically I have configured the ruleset
with the following parameters: event stream--->trap settings ( set using
netview6000 NDWN_EV )-->forward-->pager. I than create a dynamic workspace
and attach the ruleset to it. When I create the event it never displays  the
event in the dynamic workspace or pages me. It does display in the event
window. If I modify the trap setting to look for a link down for a
proprietary trap definition, it works fine and even pages me like it should.
It seems as though the IBM_NDWN_EV doesn't get recognized for this ruleset
for some reason. I have double checked the enterprise trap OID value being
generated and it is the one for IBM_NDWN_EV. Does anyone have an ideas what
I am doing wrong?
