May I add that although this is the easiest thing to do it is better to
stop the traps from being sent from the source. NetView still has to
process all the traps, even if you don't log or display. It is best to stop
all unnecessary traps from the source. NetView has limits as to how many
traps it can process per second. IBM has told me it is about 10-12 traps
per second.

Easiest thing to do is use the "Don't Log or Display" option from xnmtrap
for the traps you do not want to see.

      Hi Folks,
      NV 7.1.3 FP2 SOLARIS
      I am receiving tons of events from many Nodes of same type
      Not being able to  filter these events at the source (from Vendor's
      docs), As a result, my event browser is flooded of theses events of
      Severity 0, which makes it impossible to see other events from other
      The only solution left is to do it at the Netview Level.
      I would like to display on the event browser only  the events of
      Severity >= 3
      Q1: How can achieve this?

      Thank You,
