Re: [nv-l] Map color and trap severity.
I think you need to elaborate on this
idea more than you have.
Just exactly what are you trying to
accomplish and why? It is generally a very bad idea to try to override
netmon status, since netmon, ovwdb, ovtopmd, and ipmap have all been designed
to work closely together to keep status accurate. You cannot easily
For objects you create yourself,
that is a different matter.
NetView does offer the status trap,
58916871, which will change the color of a map object, provided that ovw
(the NetView GUI) has started the events application (nvevents) and the
map is open read-write. But this change is not reflected in the object
nor topology databases and will not persist across GUI start-ups unless
the change is for a user-created objects, not those which netmon monitors.
But even given that these are user-objects, there still is no way
to get out of issuing this trap, if that's what you mean by "duplicating
all events". This is the only universal trap which will alter
However, if the trap you want to use
as a trigger for this change is external, and not from NetView, you can
define the trap as a Status Event in trapd.conf and also specify
the status you want to be associated with the receipt of this trap, and
then nvevents will alter the map status in exactly the same way as it does
for the NetView status trap, so you don't have to issue one of those
Does this help?

|[nv-l] Map color and trap
Is there any way to create a new trap definition that's affect an object
status in the NV map?. The idea is to have one specific trap associated
to an specific map color. I know it can be done trough rulesets but this
will duplicate all events. One for the trap severity and another for the
