As a daemon, rvnamed does not send messages to the screen. It writes its messages to the file rvnamed.log in the IPTraf log directory.
Unable to open child communication socket
rvnamed was unable to open the communication endpoint for data reception from the children it creates. This is highly unusual, and should it occur, report the circumstances.
Unable to open client communication socket
rvnamed was unable to open the communication endpoint for data exchange with the IPTraf program. This is highly unusual, and should it occur, report the circumstances.
Error binding client communication socket Error binding child communication socket
rvnamed was unable to assign a name to the indicated communication socket. This may be due to a bad, full, or corrupted filesystem.
Fatal error: no memory for descriptor monitoring
rvnamed ran out of memory. IPTraf will resort to blocking, and may freeze.
Error on fork, returning IP address
rvnamed had a problem spawning a copy of itself to resolve the IP address. rvnamed will simply return the IP address in its literal, dotted-decimal notation. IPTraf will still function normally. This may be due to lack of memory or a process limit hit.
Maximum child process limit reached
rvnamed has reached its maximum number of child processes. This is intended as a "brake" to prevent too many rvnamed children from hogging your computer's resources and possibly crashing it. Unless IPTraf is monitoring an extremely busy network without filters, this shouldn't happen, at least, not that often. If you notice this message, try applying filters or check your DNS server. Many times, this can happen when the DNS server goes down for whatever reason, and you have rvnamed children taking too long to resolve.
