[NNM 10] psql and arrow keysOpen in a New Window

Hi all,

I'm using NNM 10 patch 3 (NNM1000L00003) with embedded database postgres.

Sometimes, I need to access directly to the database with psql command (/opt/application/ars/install/nonOV/Postgres/bin/psql -U postgres -d nnm).

Everything is working fine, expect arrows keys.
When I use arrow keys, I obtains specials characters like :
postgres=# ^[[D^[[A^[[C^[[B

Instead of this, I would like to move cursor in actual command or to display history commands.

Do you know how to set this ?

Monitoring EIGRP neighbor statusOpen in a New Window

Dear All

We need to monitor EIGRP neighbor status and we are receiving cEigrpNbrDownEvent trap when Neighbor is down.

But there is no trap when EIGRP neighbor status comes up and when checked with Cisco they had said that router will not send any trap when Neighbor is up.

Is there any possibility of checking whether Neighbor is up using any OID.

We are thinking of following options,

1.      Write cron script which checks whether there is any alarm when Neighbor is down.
        If it finds it down for particular router, it will check whether Neighbor is up and if it is up
        cron script will send Neighbor up trap and close Neighbor down alarm.

Based on above option how we can do following,

1.      How to check whether there is Neighbor down alarm for particular router.
2.     How to check whether Neighbor is up for that particular router.

Please help.

Best practice for defining icmp/snmp retries/timeouts on HP NNMiOpen in a New Window

Hi Guys, I've just installed a new HP NNMi 10.21 from scratch (migrating settings from current production server NNMi 9.2) and performed the initial discovery. Now I'm reviewing results and would like to know whether the current snmp/icmp coomunication settings are fine and fine tune it as necessary. My first idea was to get (monitor) snmp/icmp average/peak response times (and retries) in order to choose values suitable to my environment instead of following any rule of thumb. Is the a way to get such figures on NNMi?

Thank you
