Paul,

Yes there are equal number of Type-2 and Type-3 messages, the damn switch is sending a message for every node that goes down, and as its a LAN so when ever any one shuts down his PC the switch sends this trap. i ve manually disable the switch to send any kind of traps lets what happens... Thanks for your response!

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.

Paul
