Option to Manage Thresholds in DFM not available

Unanswered Question
Apr 8th, 2010

Hi I'm running DFM 3.2.0 and when I tried to expand the tab to manage threshold on interfaces nothing is there.

I tried rebooting the server to see if it fixes the problem no luck.

I am able to expand Device type groups and make changes, not for the DFM or User defined group.

I was able to last week though.

To give you an example:

Under DFM>Configuration>Managing Thresholds> I'm able to expand Device Type groups i.e. Routers, Sec. and VPN, etc.

For DFM which has the access port groups and such.....when I click on the expand button nothing shows up.

There appears to be an OGS problem.  Have you tried rebooting the entire server?  You may be seeing a bug where the DfmServer processes don't actually a terminate on Daemon Manager shutdown.  A reboot would confirm that.

That's what I assumed....I have rebooted the server several times.

Post the output of:


And post the DFMOGSServer.log.

I'm having truoble finding this log file.


Also brcontrol seems to be an application.

I wanted you to run the brcontrol program, and post the output.

Joe Clarke Tue, 04/13/2010 - 12:36

You should have seen output from brcontrol in the DOS window from which you ran it.  What was that output?

What is the output of:

NMSROOT/bin/perl NMSROOT/bin/resolver.pl pmplwnet1800.corp.citistreet.org

Post the NMSROOT/objects/smarts/local/logs/DFM.log and DFM1.log.

Thanks for the advice....I performed the following steps and even rebooted did not fix my issue.

You could try a full reinit of the DFM databases, but that would cause all of your DFM customizations to be lost.  The instructions can be found at https://supportforums.cisco.com/docs/DOC-8796 .  However, it might be better to open a TAC service request so real-time debugging can be done.

Hi thanks for your help....

I tried the reinit of the database several times,......I will open

a TAC case.
