A ruleset running in ESE.automation has NOTHING to do with what you see on the display.  It is for rulesets run in the background by actionsvr, and does not affect the user's display.

Your ruleset has to run in your events window, instead of forwardall.rs, or you will see exactly what you do now.  

If you really don't want NetView to process these traps, and you cannot turn them off at the source, then your only option is to install an MLM and let him filter the traps out using the trap destination table.

Anything else you do in NetView itself just masks the problem.  As was suggested, you can set the traps you don't want to see to "Don't Log or Display" or just "Log Only" in trapd.conf and they won't show up in the event widows, but trapd will still have to process them and so will nvcorrd.    Ditto for creating a ruleset or a trap filer using the filter editor ("filtered").  They all just keep the event window clear, and possibly the trapd.log,  but the processing still occurs.

RE: [nv-l] EVent Browser flooded with useless events





As I said in my original message:
1- there is no option on the SNMP Agent on  the device to filter these TRAPS by Severity
2- These Traps are  all coming from different sources but are the same Trap Number.
 
Therefore I think the best approach would be the Ruleset to block theses events if the Severity is <=3 and add that ruleset in ESE.automation.
 
Any Idea?

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.

Subject: [nv-l] EVent Browser flooded with useless events

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
sources.
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,
