James, et. al.

Thanks for the response, but I was out on vacation.

We knew that the traps were coming from the device and not NetView, but Net
Control couldn't find a configuration setting for what was happening.  The
answer was that they turned off SNMP trap forwarding for the particular
blade on that router, and the traps stopped.

Blane -

I don't know anything about this device, but trapd has no way to store and
re-issue traps so someone is sending it to you.  I would start by tracing
trapd.  First, he has to be running with the "-x" or "hex dump all incoming
packets" option.
You can set that in serversetup if it is not there already.  Then you can
toggle tracing on and off by just entering
"trapd -T" from the command line.  The default trace file is
/usr/OV/log/trapd.trace.  You will see the traps and the IP address they
are being received from.  Don't know that will help, but it may prove to
your network folks that the device has a problem.  Of course, if they are
skeptical of NetView in the first place, you may have to use an iptrace
instead.

warmStart trap






Greeting to all!

I am getting what appears to be a heartbeat warmStart trap from one of our
core routers into NetView (It's a Bay BCN).  I get them every 10 seconds,
but my network folks can't find anything on the router that is posting it.
Can anyone shed some light on it for me...

Please respond directly, since I only receive the digest.

Peace,
