So you are running this ruleset on the NetView client? If you want
assistance, it would be helpful if you would provide all relevant
Does this ruleset run any differently on the server?
To answer your question about nvcold, there is nothing you can do to check
or otherwise verify that it is running OK
You could always run "nvUtil G" to verify that all the Smartsets can be
resolved, but that is about it.
But there is nothing in the log to suggest that there is anything wrong
with nvcold, except that it was slow to connect.
Now, how about if you answer my questions, please?
Had you just recently started the daemons when you took this nvcorrd trace?
Had you just recently started the GUI? In both cases, nvcold, the
collection or Smartset daemon, will have a lot of work to do, and that
might account for why the connection was a little slow. This would be
especially true if you had multiple NetView clients active already. But
that is NOT the source of your problem. The issue was, "Why did the trap
fail to pass the 'Query Collection' test in the ruleset?" I suggested that
it is because you used "origin" as the source of the query, and that you
should be using "Attribute 2" if this is a NetView trap. So how about it?
Has it ever worked before? Does it work when you use Attribute 2?

Subject: Válasz: Re: [NV-L] ruleset is not working
To James Shanks:
Thanks a quickly answer.
"Well, the alog shows that at first nvcorrd cannot connect to nvcold, so he
cannot do the query collection.
Is nvcold running? Did you just start the daemons -- if so then h probabyl
busy. Notice that eventually he connects.
Then he asks if the origin of the trap is in the collection and nvcold says
it is not, so nothing is done.
Has this ever worked?
I think you should be using Attribute 2, which for NetView traps is the
hostname, rather than Origin here, which may be the NetView box itself. "
Q: Is nvcold running?
A: The processes are:

How can I control the nvcold is working correct?
