This usually happens only when netmon is first starting up and is very
busy and being delayed by something, usually slow name resolution.
It happens frequently when you are running with a very large seedfile.
(Note that once nodes are discovered, it is not necessary to keep all
of the nodes in the seedfile, only the rules.) Check the archives for
extensive coverage of causes of slow name resolution. Note that
a quick (to the human eye) response to an nslookup at the commandline
does not necessarily mean that you don't have name resolution problems.
See also /usr/OV/log/netmon. trace, and see more by turning on
tracing, to get an idea of what netmon is doing, where it is hanging
AIso, I suggest that you finish the installation by applying 6.0.2.
