Re: [nv-l] 7.1.4 Is the hang in nvtecia or ruleset?
Do you have any post-FixPack1 maintenance
applied? There was a serious problem with the TEC EEIF library uncovered
in Verification after 7.1.4 FixPack1 went out the door. It
had a memory leak which caused it to hang after some extended period of
time. TEC has since fixed the problem. Every post-7.1.4 FP01
test fix which shipped nvserverd, and there were several, has the new TEC
EEIF library linked in. If you haven't applied anything yet, I would
just download the latest and greatest, IY60528, and install that until
FP02 is available at the end of the quarter.
Also, I would stay away from using the
nvtecia command for the time being, and just use ovstop/ovstart for nvserverd
(Sorry). The command "nvtecia -stop" seems to work
OK, but "nvtecia -reload" is hanging or failing to complete on
most platforms. There seems to be a re-initialization problem with
State Correlation Engine after you stop it, but don't destroy the process.
I have some TEC guys looking at that now, so stay tuned.

|[nv-l] 7.1.4 Is the hang
in nvtecia or ruleset?|
I'm back with another NV to
TEC integration question/problem. Everything is centered around TEC in
our organization; everything we tell NV to act upon is designed to generate
a TEC event. We are seeing intermittent delays in receiving TEC events
through our TEC_ITS ruleset. Sometimes it will resolve itself within an
hour, other times a full daemon cycle is needed, and NV is fine afterwards.
The ruleset in use is the core TEC_ITS ruleset provided with 7.1.4 and
we have added 8 trap settings nodes to generate events from our routers/switches/eventually
Compaq Insight Agents. We have no timer or decision making nodes, it's
The issue appears to be in ruleset
processing or TEC forwarding. I say this because when you ovstop/ovstart,
events from the ruleset suddenly appear at TEC. There are no trap storms
occurring when these delays hit. We are getting ready to manage considerably
more devices and will have to add even more trap nodes to TEC_ITS.rls,
so we've got to get a handle on why this is occurring. Any troubleshooting
ideas or places where we may have a configuration problem?
