NSM integration is installed by default in R 12.1 but we are not using NSM and don't need this integration. I also see the below error messages in the log:

You can follow the below procedure to remove NSM integration from Service Desk 12.1:
Warning: Take a back up of the pdm_startup file before you try this.
[ procset MAIN_PROCSET]
Type a semicolon (;) to comment out FILTERING (ONLY).
Moving backwards towards the top of the file, you should see the following text:
[ procset FILTERING ]
Type a semicolon (;) before tngfilter, tngwriter and ehc in the above section and save the changes and restart the services.
You should now not see any of the NSM integration processes starting when you type in pdm_status.
