Usman,
I would expect if you are getting a lot of generic type 2 messages you are also receiveing a large number of generic type 3 messages. It sounds like you have a link that is trying to (re)establish a link to something(WAN?) and is unsuccessful and (re)tries on a regular basis to reconnect. This would have an almost equal number of type 2 and type 3 messages. If you are only receiving type 2 messages, I would think something is misconfigured on the device itself. Have you checked the configuration of the switch to see if it is actually configured to send traps to NetView, or possibly to another network manager that is sending them to NetView? I can tell you from the trap information that you should take a look at what is on Interface(port?) 21(ifIndex) and that it is reporting Administratively Up, but
Operationally down.

Hi all,

I am having too many events with the following details: -

* DEFAULT FMT: TEST (1.3.6.1.6.3.1.1) generic:2 specific:0 args(3):*
* [1] mgmt.mib-2.interfaces.ifTable.ifEntry.ifIndex.21 (Integer): 21*
* [2] mib-2.interfaces.ifTable.ifEntry.ifAdminStatus.21 (Integer): 1*
* [3] mib-2.interfaces.ifTable.ifEntry.ifOperStatus.21 (Integer): 2*

Its coming from one of our LAN switches, the thing is that i havent configured this switch to forward any traps to NetView. Why am i having these events?
