Leslie,
I have searched the archives and cannot find my original post or James
Shanks answer.
I recall that James indicated that the T in the log was bogus. The
developers did not 
want to add a new source character for (I think he said) ipmap.

My problem is not solved nor has it gone away. It seems to occur when
operators using eXceed
kill their eXceed sessions and go home, instead of logging out of NetView
properly.

Usually I see incorrectly parented processes, like collmap and dispsub.
I kill -9 them and all returns to normal, if I catch it before $home file
system is full and
my trapd.log rolls over several times and I lose trap data. If I do not
catch it in time, trapd chokes and dies.
It's all down hill from there...  
I am usually alerted, before catastrophic failure, by Tivoli DM monitors
watching pageouts and file system utilization.

I plan to build a monitor to detect hung ovw (ovw_binary) sessions and kill
them.

Best regards,
Don Davis

Don, I thought you posted the final answer to this one, but I
cannot find it. The archives (new interface, still missing recent
data) also seem to have nothing for those few days. Can you
repeat the answer, or did it mysteriously stop?

Hey Don,

I remember the man page for trapd.conf has something about the "status"
field:
"status A single character indicating the status that is to be assigned
to an object when it generates the defined trap:
0 Defaults
1 Unknown
2 Up
3 Marginal
4 Down
5 Unmanaged
6 Acknowledge
7 User1
8 User2"

It looks like a trap that has the status field set to "6" _might_ cause
trapd to generate an "Acknowledged" message - just a guess though....

You can try the following command string to see if there are any status
"6"'s in your trapd file:
awk ' NF >= 7 && $2 ~ /{/  { if ( $7 == "6" ) print $0}'
/usr/OV/conf/C/trapd.conf

Good Luck,
--Dermott

I have not seen it.  Could there be a ruleset running that
is acknowledging automatically, but something else
(like RFI) is making them green again very fast? Of
course that would indicate that you actually implemented
something and forgot about it....:) Do tell us what it
turns out to be!

NetView 6.0.2  AIX 4.3.3

Has anyone else seen these trap messages in trapd.log?
Why is trapd generating them?
I have NO acknowledged symbols in my map.....
Global Acknowledgement option is OFF
Could it be that something is executing  /usr/OV/bin/acknowledgeUtil ???
