James,

I do not understand it myself.  We have an identical box on our network
in another location that is not generateing these traps.  Both boxes are
running Netview 6.0 on solarus 2.7 OS.  The TRAPD.CONF file was
customised by a person at another company we merged with so I am unsure
of all of it's details.  I did search it for anything I could recognise
that would cause this.  I am fairly new to netview so am probably
overlooking the obvious.

How would I go about adding this trap to prevent further problems?

The trap is the new global Acknowldeged  trap, though I am mystified as to why you get the Unformatted trap part, because by default NetView will format all his own traps whether there is an entry in trapd.conf or not.   You could always add one if you wanted to format the trap yourself.
But  what have you got set up that is sending this as a mail message?  You'd have to have some customization in place to do that.

What level of code and what OS are you using?  Has someone customized traps in trapd to send mail?

Hi,

My Netview server is being flooded by the following messages in the
/var/mail/netview file.  I cannot identify where they are comeing from.
Does anyone out there recognise these messages and could you provide
some guidence in controlling this.  It is bringing my box to it's knees.

Thanks,
Mike
